Big Decisions and God's Best

Have you ever had a time in your life where the stars seem to align and you think this could be it? Maybe you are looking for something, a job, a new house, a girl/boy, but when that something comes around you know it is not the best, this is not for me…there is something better for me out there. Or maybe it is the best, but not the right time for the best. Anyway you look at it these can be very interesting times. What if you’re wrong? What if this is the best and your expectations are just off the charts high? What if it is time and that feeling in your heart is the chili dog from lunch. How do you approach such times, what do you do when GREAT and just slightly GREATER come your way? I have had this happen a couple of times in my life, and there are some basic principles that I use to make these type of decisions.
1. I pray about it like there is no tomorrow!
2. I read God’s Word a lot!
3. I seek counsel from people who have been there and done that.
4. I try to approach it with a neutral will in the matter.
5. I listen for God to speak through His Word, prayer, super-natural circumstances, and His people.
If these last four align, the stars are aligning and God is saying this is what is best. If you are facing a big life decision I encourage you to do these five things and see if you don’t experience God’s very best.
