Afraid of Making the Wrong Decision?

"He guides me along the right paths for his name's sake." (Psalm 23:3b NIV)

Sometimes we're afraid of making the wrong decision. And that creates stress.

But God says there is an antidote to our indecision. Psalm 23:3 tells us, "He guides me along the right paths for his name's sake." We handle the stress of decision-making by letting God guide us.

You may be thinking, "But I've tried this!" You asked God to guide you, but then you became more confused than before. You still couldn't figure it out. You wonder, "Why is knowing God's will so difficult?"

Is God playing games with us? Of course not! God wants to guide us. He wants us to know his will more than we want to know it. Our problem is we often look for the wrong thing when we're trying to find God's will. 

Some of us look for a feeling. Some of us want a methodical approach to God's will, a recipe, or a formula to apply. Some of us take a magical approach and look for God to do some fantastic sign. 

All of these ways lead to frustration and cause us to miss God's will.

God does not want you confused, and he does not want you stressed over making any decision. He is there, guiding you every step of the way.

This is his promise, so you can believe it to be true: "He guides me along the right paths for his name's sake."
