We are responsible for making decisions all day every day. From getting cold coffee to having a peppermint latte to going to work (on time) or going fishing (with the crew). To be or not to be and the decisions we make go on. Even if we choose not to decide, we have decided that too.
Isarel was given an assignment to choose a new king (I Sam. 16). The people had their standards, but failed to realize, that God’s ways were not theirs. God sees things from a divine perspective and wants us to trust him and confident in his ways. God wanted them to transition from Saul into a new day, new era under the new man that he was going to select.
As we approach a new day a new era in our life and ministry, let us consider the direction God wants for us by:
- Humbling Ourselves – Hebrew 4:10
- Search and Study the Scriptures – Acts 17:11, 2 Timothy 2:15
- Pray for Direction – Proverbs 2:6, I Thess 5:17, James 1:2-8,
