How To Make The Right Decision Every Time

Day 3 of 4 • This day’s reading


You’re Equipped

When God thinks of His plan for your life, He thinks of everything He’s done in you and given you that equips you to follow through. 

You can follow this plan—in fact, you were made to follow this plan! And when you do, Jesus says you will walk in the light: “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life” (John 8:12).

I don’t know about you, but that makes me want to walk in His plan and purpose more than anything! It is a wonderful plan beyond your wildest dreams. Why? Because God planned it. And He’s been working on it since before you were born. Ephesians 2:10 says, “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them” (NAS).

Think about it: God created you—He handcrafted you—for good works beforehand. He set it up for you, and He believes you’ll do it. It’s your divine destiny. Before you were even born, He prepared these good things for you to do. If you’re facing some major decisions today, that should be good news to you.

Since He created the plan and He created you, doesn’t it make sense that He would want to lead you and guide you into it? He’s not keeping the plan a secret from you—He wants you to walk in it. He wants to see it all come to pass even more than you do. Life is not a big guessing game, and God hasn’t overlooked you. He is standing by, ready to help you make the right decisions so you’ll end up walking in your divine purpose.

I think sometimes we don’t realize there is a divine plan for our lives and that our job is just to find out what it is and walk in it.

I’m telling you—you’re here on purpose! God has crafted you for a specific plan, and He needs you to fulfill it. You need to believe that. And then you need to seek Him about it.

You might pray something like this: “Lord, thank You for leading me into my divine purpose. I will pray and read Your Word and trust You to speak to my heart, letting me know the direction I should go.”
