Check your decision against God’s Word

Check your decision against God's Word

As I was driving to work this morning, a song By Colin Buchanan came on the radio called ‘Hold it up to the Bible’, and although the song may be a little rocky for some… it was bathed in wisdom and appropriate as we go through our series on Guardrails.

He calls us to check every decision we have to make against God’s word and not to run with the crowd.

James 3:15-17 shows us the  characteristics of true godly wisdom: “But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.”

Have the courage to ask yourself whether your choice meets these qualifications for God’s wisdom, or whether there are still any outside influences directing your path.

If in doubt, keep praying and turn to the word which is alive and active as the Holy Spirit enlightens it. God’s wisdom will direct your paths in a peaceful manner.

God is the source of all wisdom. Only He views your life from an eternal and comprehensive perspective.

Allow Him to become part of your decision–making process.
