Life offers us lots of questions and very few answers. It sets before us many paths, but very few reliable directions about which path is the best for us. We are bombarded with decisions — should I take this job? Should I quit this job?! We have endless choices — is this the college for me? Is this the guy for me? Is this the church where God wants me to be?
And, sometimes, we just flat-out have no idea what to do, what to choose, how to make the best decision.
But, if we trust God with our lives, that means we can trust Him with the choices and decisions that are looming over us. We can trust that if He has a “best case scenario” for us, He will lead us toward that choice. Part of the way God does that for us is through His Word.
So, I want to give you 3 scriptures to pray when you just don’t know what to do. See how praying God’s Word can provide the Light you need to illuminate the path you should take.
1. Teach Me Your Way
"Teach me your way, O Lord; I will walk in your truth..." (Psalm 86:11a NASB).
Sometimes we just need to be a student! When we ask God to teach us His way, it will expose how much or often we are following our own ways. It’s not necessarily that our ways are wrong; it just may be that our ways aren’t the best ways.
God, our Master Teacher, will show us His way and help us to walk in His truth. When we become a learner and choose to walk in His truth, it positions us to hear and follow and walk toward the plan God has for us.
