Is it difficult to know if you are making a good choice? When faced with a decision are you so overwhelmed with confusion that you become stagnant and don't move ahead at all? Does the fear of making the wrong decision have a strangle-hold on your mind?
“Now what I am commanding you today,” Moses tells the Hebrews people at Moab, “is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach” (Deuteronomy 30:11). He has told them that they must choose life or death. He has told them that their decisions will bring either one. But he tells them that is also not difficult to know if their choices are good or not. It is not out or your reach either, or is it too hard.
How is it possible? Moses answer to the Hebrew nation is also an answer for each one of us. It speaks of the best scenario for our lives. “The word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it” (Deuteronomy 30:14). Is the Word in your heart? Do you absorb it until its message builds faith in your heart?
Faith to believe you are capable of continually making good choices comes from hearing the message, and the message is only heard through the word of God (Romans 10:17). The Word can only be alive in your heart if you have allowed it make your heart spiritually tender.
Is your heart spiritually tender? Is the Word alive in you? Is your desire to be in God's will, and do you pray daily for His direction? Proverbs 16:3 (KJV) reads, “Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.” Where your thoughts are, so is your heart. Sometimes when you are faced with the need to make a decision, you honestly don’t know what God’s will is. But you must make a decision. Pray for His perfect will in this decision. Remind Him of your love for Him and your faith in Him. Lay your decision on His altar, and commit it to Him. If the decision is made out of the greatest desire to be in His will, He knows the intention of your heart, and faithfully honors your prayer. He will either anoint your decision or change the circumstances so your decision will become as He wishes. He will not fail you.
