God Leads Me to Wise Choices
Who is the man who fears the Lord? He will instruct him in the way he should choose.
Do you ever struggle with making the right choice?
Sometimes, life’s choices are difficult. Choices are not always black and white. Sometimes you have to choose between good and good. Often, the right choice is not always clear. Making right choices is the pathway to success. To make the right choices that lead to success, you need wisdom and direction from God.
God promises to instruct and give you wisdom when you fear Him.
The person who fears the Lord will find direction and instruction in the choices of life. Those may be big decisions or small ones. In either case, God promises to lead you when you fear Him.
What does it mean to fear the Lord? If God is a God of love, why should we fear Him?
To fear the Lord is to recognize Him for who He is and to show Him the reverence He is due. To fear the Lord is not to cower before Him, but to understand that He is the Lord God who holds eternity in His hands. It is to recognize His authority in your life and to live accordingly in obedience to Him.
God rewards those who fear Him.
Those who fear the Lord receive instruction on how they should live and the choices they make. God imparts His wisdom and guidance into your life when you fear Him. Wisdom equips you to make the right decisions, no matter the size.
Sometimes the hardest decisions to make are those between good and best. You need the wisdom of the Lord to make the hard choices of life. As you walk in fear of the Lord, you have the promise that He will lead and guide you. He will fill you with wisdom and understanding.
As you make the right choices, guided by His presence and prompting, you will find success in all your ways.
Look at that promise once again.
Who is the man who fears the Lord? He will instruct him in the way he should choose. – Psalm 25:12
Make this confession.
As I fear the Lord, He directs my path.
He gives me wisdom for the choices I must make today.
As I make the right choices, I follow successful paths.
God gives me wisdom and direction as I learn to fear Him.
In Jesus name,
