Look back on life.
As I look back on my life, many of my decisions seemed to be of my own design at the time.
However, as the events unfold, these decisions are in-fact pivotal to a greater purpose. It’s after time has passed and I am able to look back, do I see the coincidental, or what I believe to be providential aspects of those decisions.
Decision-making can be overwhelming for anyone.
Specifically, for those who don’t know Christ and who do not believe in the promises of Scripture. For them, the worry of decision-making can be crippling.
They wander through life, trying their best to achieve some sort of happiness or comfort for themselves and their loved ones. They stress, believing that they’re always a couple of bad decisions from failure or misfortune.
Such is a life without Jesus.
In Proverbs 19:21, we read “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.“
This is the comfort of those who know Jesus. Understanding that we are walking through life under a different set of circumstances, with a greater purpose knit into our very being.
There is no need to stress over decisions.
There is no need to worry about today’s events, or even tomorrow’s. God loves us and has accepted us into His family through Jesus Christ. Therefore, we always have a plan and it’s a good one.
Sure, times may get tough and struggles may endure day in and day out. Nevertheless, we can rest in the truth that it’s all part of a bigger plan and a bigger purpose. We must simply resist sin, love God and love each other.
Then go about our making our so-called decisions with confidence.
