Difficult Decisions

.

Sometimes Christians have a hard time deciding what to do in a specific situation that calls for a clear decision. Here are 3 guidelines that might help you in finding God’s will…

  1. Pray openly to the Father about the issue.
  2. Write out the pros and cons of each option.
  3. Ask questions based on Biblical principles…
  • What does God’s word say about it (Psalm 119:105)?
  • What will it cost (Luke 14:28 – 30)?
  • How will it affect you (I Corinthians 6:12)?
  • Will it hinder your obedience to God (Luke 11:42)?
  • What do spiritually mature people day (Proverbs 15:22)?
  • Can you ask God to bless your decision (Proverbs 10:22)?
  • Can you thank God for it (Colossians 3:17)?
  • Are you doing this to the glory of God (I Corinthians 10:31)?
  • Will your decision be a stumbling block to others (I Corinthians 8:9)?
  • Are you doing this to please God and not people (Colossians 3:23)?
  • Does it promote love (Romans 13:8 – 10)?
  • Have you thought about the consequences of your decision (Galatians 6:7)?
