Making Good Decisions

Life is about decisions. Knowing how to make wise decisions is so important. Your decisions have consequences for years ahead. Your choices also affect the lives of others. God has provided resources for you to make wise decisions.

In making wise decisions, consider your conscience. God has made you with the ability to know the difference between right and wrong. God made you as a moral being with a conscience to guide you. Listen to your "conscience also bearing witness" (Romans 2:15). Never ignore your conscience, if you want to make wise decisions.

Make wise decisions as you consider the wisdom of God in your Bible. There you will find practical guidance which will always lead you in making good decisions. You can say to God, "Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path" (Psalm 119:105).

God's Spirit will lead you to make wise decisions. He lives in the heart and mind of every believer in Christ. The Holy Spirit brings the gift of wisdom from God to you. His wisdom always brings peace and defeats confusion. "Let the peace of God rule in your hearts" (Colossians 3:15). God's Spirit will always lead you in making good decisions.
