Decisions! Decisions!

Psalm 143:8b: “Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.”

Do you ever feel unable to make a decision? I do. If I shop for clothes, I want them to be on sale, made well, washable, no iron, and in red, hot pink, or royal blue.

When it comes to electronics, I’ll talk to dozens of people before I make a decision. I’ll wait months even two or three years before I decide.

When I bought my laptop, I waited and waited.

Finally, I did what I should have done first. I prayed and asked God to “show me the way I should go.”

I also asked God to have that laptop on sale. I told him I wouldn’t buy it unless it was on sale. Then I stopped thinking about the laptop.

About seven months later, I went to the pharmacy near an electronics store. Since I was already there, I walked inside the store.

I heard an announcement over the intercom that the Apple laptops were on sale, and they had only four left.

As I raced to the computer department, I thanked God for the sale. I bought my laptop and thanked God again.

Sometimes God says, “No.” Sometimes he says, “Yes.” Other times he says, “Wait.”

 Dear God, show me the way I should go. Amen.

 Application: In what decision will you wait to hear from God?
