PRAYING BEFORE CHOOSING!
We are faced with choices to make on daily bases, both tangible and intangible decisions; choices in marital decision, in career, where to work, where to worship, who to make friendship with, who to employ to work with, car to buy, business to do, where to live, what to say and so on…
Every choice we make has effect on our present, future and people around, so it is very important not to make choice on life matter by ourselves, and not to allow people to do this for us, either parents or pastor – but to pray about everything and let God choose for us.
Here is the example of Jesus Christ when it comes to making choice, which we must also follow:
“Now it came to pass in those days that He went out to the mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. 13 And when it was day, He called His disciples to Himself; and from them He chose twelve whom He also named apostles” Luke 6:12, 13.
When Jesus Christ was about to choose His apostles, he first spent time to pray for God’s direction before choosing, even though He was Christ. What about you?
Nothing is as dangerous and foolish for a child of God as making decision before praying, and when things mess up, you start to pray? Why not pray and save yourself from after-decision hazard?
Do not choose because it seems right or because many are rushing it – “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.” Proverbs 16:25
Do not choose by sight but by the Spirit of God – “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” Romans 8:14
Do not take a decision before you pray, but take action by the leading of the Spirit after praying.
Commit your way and will to God and let Him have His way in your life and success with safety is sure!
Proverbs 3:5,6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart,And lean not on your own understanding;6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,And He shall direct your paths.
