Faith in Your Choices

And whatever you ask for in prayer, you will receive if you have faith.” –Matthew 21:22

When it comes to making decisions, it can be one of the hardest things to go through. We falter in our confidence and go back and forth between our choices. We oftentimes forget that we have a Father who loves us and ultimately wants the best for us, who is waiting for us to run to Him for guidance and security.

There are many different sources we can run to when we’re seeking direction. There’s our parents or families, who can give us their best advice based on their past and what they know is best for us. There’s our friends, who know us so well and can help us to the best of their ability.

But sometimes we have choices to make that can’t be decided even with the help from our closest friends and family. These choices can wear us down, and even after we make our decision, we still question if we made the right choice. It can drive us crazy if we let it, but in the end, God always has our back.

Joshua 1:9 says, “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Whether you think you’ve made the right decision or not, God will and always has been with you. He commands us to be strong and courageous, whether this be in our times of trial or in times of triumph. He needs our faith to be unwavering, confident in his guidance and where his path is taking us. Not just in our times of security, but in our times of confusion, doubt, and weakness.

Romans 4:20 says, “He did not waver in unbelief at God’s promise but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God.”

In this verse, the apostle Paul is talking about a man named Abraham, who was at that time experiencing a trial beyond compare being the old age that he was. He didn’t question what God was doing or become filled with frustration and confusion. Instead, this presented Abraham with an opportunity to strengthen his faith in God and experience the true fulfilling of God’s promises!

We all can learn a little bit from the story of Abraham. His faith is not to go unnoticed, and we should strive to have the confidence in the Lord like he had!

When we come to a crossroad, don’t forget about the God we serve. Why stress about making decisions when the Lord already knows what the future holds? I urge you to practice two things when it comes to decision making: prayer and faith.

Pray about even the smallest of decisions you’re struggling to make! There is nothing too small to present to God. Pray for faith, pray for guidance, and pray for confidence. These three things will give you a new outlook on difficult choices that you come across. Depend on him, and watch your life become a whole lot better!

Sometimes it’s tough being a teenager!  We have a lot of decisions to make at such a young age.  What friends should I get involved with?….Should I go to a party or not?….Where will I go to college?….What do I want to do with my life?….What path should I take?  Some decisions are easy while others can be very difficult.  I want to encourage you to make your decisions by praying about them and then being led by where God takes you.  Romans 8:28 says “We are assured and know that (God being a partner in their labor) all things work together and are (fitting into a plan) for good to and for those who love God and are called according to His design and purpose.”Chelsea Crockett - Decisions

The great news here is that if we partner with God to make our decisions then He will guide us and use them for our own good.  Even if we make an incorrect decision, God can take that mistake and work it out for the better!  Our trials are often what leads us to our final destination. Although it may seem our trials are hurting us, God is working in weird ways to make those trials benefit us in the long run.  Sometimes we have to make decisions to play it safe and other times we have to make choices to step out of our comfort zone.  Often times we have nothing more than faith to help us take our next step.  Trust in God’s word and keep your heart ready and willing to obey….knowing that it just might take you out of your comfort zone but bring you to your best destination!

Love, Chelsea
