The Daily Choice

“For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding…”  Proverbs 2:6 (ESV)

Started my day jumping in the shower first to wake up my eyes.  Decided to dry my hair naturally and create a loose curl – perfect for a hot day.  Switched up my shoes and jumped in the car.  Rethought my commute to work and took the less traveled route.  Within a hour, I had made lots and lots of little decisions. We do it all the time.  What to wear, what time to get up, what to have for lunch – I think you get it. Seemingly unimportant choices until one of them unveils the big behind the small.

Perhaps you’ve been there when going one route prevented you from a tragic accident.  Maybe the fact you rethought an activity with friends saved you from awkward unwanted moments. Could it be that a boatload of careless decisions landed you where you didn’t want to be.

If we could only see ahead – you know – like visit the consequences of our decisions before we cemented them in stone.  We would definitely avoid the unavoidables.  But, we don’t get that privilege or do we?

God’s word is packed full of wisdom and guidance.  Tried and true tips for making good decisions.  So blessed by authentic examples of people’s lives who succeeded, failed and got back up again.  Grateful  for impactful truths found in Proverbs – daily wisdom for all of life’s choices.  Encouraged by James’ reminders of how we should be living our lives.

Sweet friend, we are without excuse.  Yet knowing and doing are two totally different decisions.  Who wouldn’t seek out wisdom?  Who wouldn’t want to learn how to make good choices and live within the boundaries of God’s blessings?  The decision to gather wisdom is pivotal.  But it must be followed up with doing.  You got it – putting into action what we have learned, seeking the Holy Spirit’s guidance as we make decisions and staying within the boundaries of God’s commands.

While we can’t foresee the future, we can ensure the decisions in the present are aligned with God’s will.  What may seem unimportant in the moment could possibly culminate in life altering decisions. Each choice, each decision builds upon the next.  A series of “not good” choices can land us in deep waters.  A series of “good” choices can position us for God’s favor and blessing.

The choice is up to us – choose well sweet friend.  Choose carefully and choose with God’s perspective.  You won’t be disappointed.

“Father, You generously give wisdom to all who seek it.  No holding back.  No favorites.  All who come to You in will receive if they ask in belief without doubting – You are our Wisdom Giver.”


For His Glory
