Life is all about making choices. And every choice we make has an impact on our lives. A single decision can completely change the direction of your life. As a result, you must always ensure that you make the best judgments possible.
However, because humans can only know so much, we may not always know which decision is best for us. That is why it is necessary to seek God’s direction at all times. God knows everything. He knows the beginning, the middle, and the end, as well as which decisions are best for us.
The bible encourages us in James 1:5, to ask God for wisdom if we don’t have it. Many are the things we do not know, so instead of doing what you think you want, rely on God for wisdom and direction.
