We are all faced with making decisions everyday. In general, we can navigate the smaller decisions like clothing options, food choices, time usage, where we focus our attention, etc. But sometimes we can struggle with making bigger decisions. For example, making a decision about college, taking a job, marriage, buying a house and others can be really stressful.
I recently did a sermon about making decisions & this link might be helpful if you’d like to see the whole thing (the message starts around 1:03), including the wonderful joke at the beginning ,)
And here are some helpful hints from Jacob that could be useful to you when making decisions:
- recognize that God stays with you, whatever you decide because God is omni-present
- instead of waiting for a lightning bolt of revelation it can be more helpful to move in a direction and invite God to adjust the direction and tweak the pacing
- appreciate that God can show up in a dark season and bring some necessary and life-infusing encouragement
