I do not like making decisions! The little things throw me for a loop. The big things, well they just leave me completely lost.
This week we were asked something and we have to make a decision. It had me completely stumped. My husband felt as though God had already spoken to him and he was ready to answer. Me, not so much. I prayed. Then I prayed harder. Then I prayed even harder. But I just did not feel a sure answer. Last night I laid in bed and I cried. I just wanted God to show me what to do. I need a big, bright sign with an arrow saying this way! But I just wasn't getting that.
"Be still and know I am God." Psalm 46:10
In the darkness of the night, God whispered to me, "I know you do not like making decisions. You do not have to. I already have the path laid. All you have to choose is to obey."
Wow. So powerful. Of course I choose to obey God! That is the only choice I have to make. God makes the rest. I need to lean on Him.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your path straight." Proverbs 3:5-6
I choose to obey God. He chooses everything else!
