Is this the right course of action Lord?

February 19th, 2015

I have always been conscious of seeking God’s will and direction when moving into new things. One of the questions I often prayerfully ask is, “Is this the right course of action Lord?”

I know that I don’t have the benefit of being all knowing. I know that I am not all wise. I know I don’t know the future. I know that my motives are not always pure. As a result I need God’s help.

In Proverbs 16:1 it says, “We can make our own plans, but the LORD gives the right answer” and Proverbs 16:9 says, “We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps”.

For me, the above verses offer some guidance when making decisions. I prayerfully think things through with my own reasoning that God gave me, I research and talk to people to gather information about a course of action. But ultimately I take it to God.

The “Is this the right course of action Lord” question has helped us to make wise decisions over the years. If God doesn’t say yes and we don’t have a peace, the move or change pauses until we do. If we don’t get peace, it gets put on the back burner or cancelled.

What things have you got in place to keep your plans before God? I think that is worth reflecting on today.

God Bless,
