There is Strength and Safety in Numbers!
When making important decisions and choices there comes a time to sleep on it, to wait, or discuss with others for wise counsel the plans or decisions about your future. “Plans go wrong for lack of advice; many advisers bring success”.Proverbs 15:22
When we become an island to ourselves the subtlety of pride sneaks in to steer us off course. I can handle this on my own and nobody is going to tell me what to do! Have you been there before and done that? How did that work out for you?
What about business decisions, leadership in any organization, or seeking another doctor’s opinion on a major surgery of what is the best procedure or if the surgery is even necessary?
There are times we can make decisions by impulse and not thinking things through. Some have or call this OCD. For example, Don’t buy a car or home you know you cannot afford. Getting in way over your head on a project or school bills that won’t give you a good job to even cover your school loans. That new job offer but it means relocating or selling the house and uprooting the kids friends and schools.
It is healthy to find a counselor, a mentor, a close trusted friend to discuss important decisions at times. To have somebody to ‘bounce things off’ so we can get a better understanding and clearer focus. Another important aspect is to bring your plans and decisions to the Lord in prayer and ask for God’s guidance and will on the matter.
If you still dont have peace about a matter then wait patiently to see if this is the right choice or fit for you and your family. Put it on the back burner.
Have a great week my friend and get excited about spring because the birds are beginning to sing, the snow is melting, and it is that time of season to “play ball”!
