The Daily Walk Part 13 - I Don't Know What To Do

Megan had decisions to make that would affect her family and her career path. The pros and cons could be weighed either way and no clear cut direction could be seen. She did not know what to do. Confusion and anxiousness weighed her down.

Her email brought an unexpected note from a friend.. “You are on my mind and in my prayers this week. As I read my Bible today it seemed I should share this verse with you”...

“We are asking God to fill you with the knowledge of His will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding…being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience ...joyfully giving thanks to the Father.” Col.1:9-12

Tears came to Megan’s eyes as she read this verse. God was assuring her He would fill her with the knowledge of His will through spiritual wisdom and understanding. Could she trust Him with the question marks of her life?

The Holy Spirit used this verse to renew her confidence that God would direct her. Megan felt new hope that God would navigate her through the question marks. With new focus she began to commit each decision, each day to God.

As the month passed Megan felt God truly directing her path and showing her His will through an understanding that she knew came from His heart. She felt herself being strengthened by God’s mighty power.

If you have a decision to make and don’t know which way to turn…ask God for spiritual wisdom and understanding. It goes beyond the pro and con lists we make for ourselves. His desire for you is to be fruitful and to grow in your knowledge of God.

Give Him the question mark you are searching out today and truly trust Him to guide you. Pray about every aspect of your decision. Keep God in the center of your focus and do not neglect reading His Word and asking Him to guide you through it. He will keep His word and will give you patience and endurance as you wait on Him.

prayer & reflection

Father God,
I don’t know what to do. I thank you for Your promise of guidance. Help me today to trust my future and my plans to You. Help me today to lean on Your patience and endurance. Lead me in paths that will bring growth in my knowledge of You. Give me spiritual wisdom and understanding that goes beyond my own thinking.
I thank you in the strong name of Jesus, Amen.
