GOOD DECISIONS?

 Ecclesiastes 7:1 -8:1
 Haven't we all looked back occasionally and questioned our past decisions?  What are some of the decisions you most regret? Maybe it was a car you purchased or perhaps a career you wish you had pursued!  Or even maybe, you feel you spent time with the wrong person, that person who was negative in your life! 
 If you would take the time to read the verses listed above in the Book of Ecclesiastes you would find some interesting thoughts about "wisdom" and "making decisions".  In verse 11, the writer tells us "wisdom is like an inheritance, and is a good thing".  He further tells us "wisdom is a shelter" and "wisdom preserves life" and "wisdom makes man more powerful"!  A famous author Chuck Swindoll defines wisdom as "the God-given ability to see life with rare objectivity and to handle life with rare stability".
 So where do you start to gain more wisdom!?  You can begin by using discernment!  In the book of Proverbs, chapter 10:13: it reads "Wisdom is found on the lips of the discerning".  Discernment is the ability to decide between truth and error, right and wrong.  Discernment is the process of making careful decisions based on the biblical standards in the Holy Bible.  Discernment is listening carefully for the Spirit of God to guide you.  It is very easy to get tossed about in this world and engage in unbiblical decision making and behavior.  We have to give our best efforts not to stumble! Remain faithful in your discernments, and seek good decisions in every area of your life.
  YEARN to discern!  Yes, it can seem like hard work sometimes!  But in all the "nitty-gritty" matters, remember to seek the wisdom that helps you decide why you are making those particular choices.
  In closing, remember the wise person gives thought to their ways!  The Lord hears the prayers of the righteous.

Loving God our Father!

When you turn to the Lord Jesus you delight his heart!   You know the feeling when someone rushes forward to greet you with a smile and hug.  You feel so loved and acknowledged!   Perhaps that's how God feels when we call on his name in worship and prayer, acknowledging him as our heavenly Father and honoring him above all else.
