    There are many important decisions we need to make in life. Some of those will cost our future, a precious relationship and even our own lives. The most intelligent person in the world is also prompt to making a wrong decision.

    Judge by what we discern rather than what we see.

    When God wanted to look for another King for Isreal, He told Prophet Samuel to anoint someone from the sons of Jesse. Samuel thought that Eliab, the eldest son who had the built of being a king was the one God has chosen. However, God said, '....Man looks at the outward appearance but God looks at the heart.' It is clear that God sees into the spirit rather than the appearance.

    Pray and wait.

    As we walk with God, we realise that God reveals things a little at a time. He seldom and usually does not reveal His plans and purpose all at a time to us. He was leading and guiding us step by step to build our faith. In most cases, we are to wait for God to reveal and lead us before we make a decision or do a thing. This seem to be a very difficult thing for most people, when we are trained to make decisions and do things fast. However, in certain cases, God wants us to wait and pray. Overloading ourselves with the daily affairs of life lead us nearer to the pattern of the example of Martha, who cares the work more than Jesus Himself. We sometimes do that, we care the work more than the provider.

    God's timing

    When we have do the neccessary to flow with the Spirit of God, the time will come for us to reap the fruits from God. The blessings and results that follow after our obedience to obey His leading is tremendous. It will be more than what we can think of or imagine. God will multiple and bless us when we choose and decide to discern, pray, wait and obey the Spirit.

    God bless!
