How To Make The Right Decision

Life is a series of decisions. Some decisions are big, and some are small. Some decisions have a huge impact on our quality of life, and some don't. Some decisions can make us, and some decisions can break us. Some decisions are right, and some decisions are wrong. Decisions are an important part of life. Here are some things I do to try to make the right decisions on a daily basis.

1. Stay in God's Word on a daily basis.

2. Spend quality time praying and seeking God's face.

3. Keeping my heart uncluttered from bitterness and unforgiveness.

4. Go with my gut.

5. First impressions of others when choosing friends, staff members, etc. are huge.

6. I've learned that a red flag is a red flag. Don't overlook the flag.

7. If I have to make myself like a person, there isn't a divine connection.

8. Proceed slowly with big decisions.

9. Get godly counsel often.

10. Listen for the still small voice of the Holy Spirit.

11. Check references and double-check them if needed.

12. I have to have peace. If I don't have peace about a decision, it's usually not the right decision.

13. Be a God-pleaser. Make the decision that I believe pleases God even if it doesn't please people.
