Skip Orem (00:00):
God, well, He’s given us the freedom to make our own decisions, however, it’s so important that we talk with Him and ask for His guidance when making any kind of major decision. Whether it’s about healthcare, marriage, family, careers, those decisions sometimes they can be overwhelming. God will help us with our decisions. Romans 12:2 says, to be transformed by the renewing of your mind so that you may discern what is the will of God. When our hearts and our minds are focused on God, we become more aware of His desire for our lives.
Skip Orem (01:14):
We’re able to gain a little more insight from God to help us make those difficult decisions. I’ve been searching the Bible for any verses on help with decision making. And there are a ton of verses in the Bible that can help with decision making. But of course, we always need to be careful not to misapply verses. Here are two Bible verses that I found pretty helpful to me right now, James 1:5 says, if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God who gives generously to all without reproach and it will be given to him. And then this very important verse from Proverbs 15:22, without counsel plans fail, but with many advisors, they succeed. Those two verses give me both comfort and direction in confronting this important healthcare decision that I need to make. I talk every day with God and yes, I am consulting with many advisors, medical professionals and documentation that’s written by folks who have the
expertise that I lack. Ultimately, God’s going to lead me to a correct decision and then I’m no longer going to need to worry about it.
Skip Orem (02:48 ):
Confident that with God’s guidance, that I’ve taken the correct course of action. For any listeners out there with important decisions to make, look to God, look to the Bible, comfort, advice and direction are in His words.
