God Gives Peace…not Confusion

Psalm 37: 23-24 “The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall,  for the Lord holds them by the hand.”

So often we find ourselves confused or unsure as we walk through life. Maybe you’re confused RIGHT NOW about something. Maybe you’re not sure what is right or wrong in a situation…. Maybe you have decisions to make, and you’re not sure what is best….Maybe you aren’t sure who you are supposed to be, or where to invest your time, or even how to respond to a text message.

Whether it’s something big or small, I want to remind you what 1 Corinthians 14:33 says: “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace”. God gives peace, not confusion. He also directs our steps, like Psalm 37:23-24 says. He delights in EVERY detail of your life. You can be confident that even if you’re confused about the smallest detail of your life, God cares and He will direct you!

 

Still not sure how to navigate a hard decision?  Try this action plan:

 

  1. Go to God about it
  2. Go to God’s word about it.
  3. Try the Peace Test
  4. Try talking to someone wiser than you.

 

Not sure what the Peace Test is?  Grab your copy of Priceless and head to chapter  11!

If these four actions line up in agreement, then be confident in your decision, and go for it! If one of these four things is conflicting with another, then go back to number one and start over at the beginning, or wait. God might not be saying “no”, he might be saying “not now”

There is no problem too big or too small that you can’t bring to God for help. He uses every detail of your life to write an amazing story!
