As Christian women we make decisions all the time. But sometimes our specific situations are not listed out in the Bible, therefore, we’re not sure of what we should do.
Here are some examples of decisions that many of us deal with:
Should you move to a specific area? Choose a job across the country? Put your kids in a certain program or school? Sign up for a Bible study? Help serve on a committee? The list could go on.
Bottom line: we make hundreds of decisions on a regular basis, but how do we know if they are what’s Biblically best for us?
Here are some ways to help you with the decision-making process.
4 Questions to Ask Yourself So You Can Make Wise Decisions
1. Will your decision bring you to a place where you’re closer to Christ or further away from Him?
All things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful; all things are lawful for me, but not all things edify. Let no one seek his own, but each one the other’s well-being. 1 Corinthians 10:23,24
2. Will your decision bring you to a place that’ll cause another Believer to stumble?
“But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea. Mark 9:42
So if what I eat causes another believer to sin, I will never eat meat again as long as I live—for I don’t want to cause another believer to stumble. 1 Cor. 8:13 (NLT)
3. Will your decision cause you to be strengthened, encouraged, and equipped in the Lord?
I am warning you ahead of time, dear friends. Be on guard so that you will not be carried away by the errors of these wicked people and lose your own secure footing. Rather, you must grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. All glory to him, both now and forever! Amen. 2 Peter 3:17,18 (NLT)
4. Will your decision ultimately glorify the Lord?
Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Cor. 10:31
Remember, you have the Holy Spirit guiding you. Slow down and quiet your life so you can hear His voice as He directs your steps!
