Good day my brothers and sisters.
May the peace of our Lord be with you all. Have you ever had a tough decision you needed to make?
My spiritual leader always advices that in everything, consult God. I took these words in and upon reflection I found that often we run to people when faced with decisions, asking them what they think we ought to do; leaving God last.
My brothers and sisters, I am writing this to urge you to include God in all your plans, put Him first. If you feel you may need guidance from another person, ask God to be the driving channel so that indeed you receive the help you need.
As human beings, we often look at things with the flesh instead of using our spiritual eyes; while an opportunity can seem great and even Godsend, its important to consult God and ask him for clarity and sound mind so that whatever decision you make, may bring glory to Him and leave you feeling at peace.
We cannot hide from ourselves and from God. When you have made a decision, your conscious will tell you whether it was a wise decision or not. Often bad decisions leave us feeling unsettling emotions such as ‘guilt’ and ‘regret’.
Take time to be lead by God as described in Psalm 23 and be content.
May God be your constant guide in all decisions big or small you ever have to make.
As we sing Hymn 369, let us also read Psalm 27:13-14 which says:
“I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”
Together with Psalm 119:105 which says:
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.”
We serve an amazing God, when he tells or whispers to you:
“Butle, butle! Bea pelo, ngoan’a ka,
Butle, butle! Ha ‘e-s’o be nako;
Butle! Ke ‘na ke tla bona sebaka;
Ke ntse ke u lisa ka lerato.”
