Proverbs 16:25 “There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.”
This verse describes why it is so important to pray about everything in this life. Every day we face a multitude of decisions. There are so many times that I make those decisions without consulting our all knowing God. I’m pretty stupid sometimes. So shortsighted in my decision making. It is hard to make a good decision when I only see part of the picture.
But God sees it all. He knows the outcome of every path that I could take. He knows what’s best for me. He loves me unconditionally. Why wouldn’t I trust my decisions to the One that made me?
“I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live;” Deut. 30:19. There is a way that appears to be right. Are you going to take that path? Why wait to find out until it is too late? Why not ask God first? Make a point to pray today before making those decisions and let God direct your steps.
