Every day we make choices. Every choice has some sort of effect on our lives, whether it be monstrous, miniscule, or somewhere in between the two.
Do you ever have trouble deciding which choice to choose, which path to travel, which hand has the magic coin? Do you have trouble discerning which voice in your head is pointing you in the best, most fruitful direction?
I do. Often.
When I sit there, the pros and cons of every possible scenario swirling in my head, the pressure of choosing best weighs heavily on my shoulders. Sometimes the burden feels so heavy, I feel I might suffocate. But the truth is, I don’t have to carry the burden. I can choose to lay the choice down and ask God to help me see with eyes other than my own.
But before we lay something down, we have to know if we are able to trust the God who is going to pick it up. Is He trustworthy?
The Bible says this:
The instructions of the Lord are perfect,
reviving the soul.
The decrees of the Lord are trustworthy,
making wise the simple.
The commandments of the Lord are right,
bringing joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are clear,
giving insight for living.
Psalm 19: 7-8
Challenge: Think about trust in relation to your connection with God. Spend a few moments writing out your fears of what might happen if you were to hand over your decision-making to Him. Write down a few instances when you have felt that you could trust Him. Have there been a few times that you think He has let you down? What fears do you have that come with trusting God? What excites you about trusting Him?
