Every decision we make is connected. It either leads us closer to God or further away from God.
Trust God with all my heart literally means, with all that I am. My mind, will and emotions!
What is wisdom? Wisdom is knowing the difference between right and wrong and choosing to do what is right, even when it is hard.
Making wise choices is all about trust. It all comes down to if we trust Jesus. Jesus has our best interests in mind. Surrendering to Him is the key to heading in the right direction.
Nobody plans to destroy their own lives, but a lot of people have because they plan not to. Your direction not your intentions lead to a destination (Andy Stanley).
Remember, making wise choices is not normal. Your life will look different and people will notice.
My encouragement to you when making a choice is to ask the question, "Is this the wise thing to do?" Avoid asking the question, "is it right or wrong" especially in the grey, uncertain areas of life. Ask the question that leads to applying wisdom.
A fool makes blind decisions because they believe that life isn't connected. A wise person makes decisions because they understand that every choice is connected to a path.
It all comes down to WISDOM or FOOLISHNESS.
Here are a few question to ask when you face a difficult decision:
What is the wise thing to do?
Will my decisions help or hurt others coming closer to Jesus?
Will my choices lead me to a destination that lines up with God's Word?
