Act with Discernment

How to Know What to Do Next

Truly seeking God’s will? God will guide you.

This verse is my reminder:

“For we are of God’s making, created in union with the Messiah Yeshua for a life of good actions already prepared by God for us to do” (Eph. 2:9-10, CJB)

Trusting that God already has a plan for you will help you discern your next step. Then, ask yourself, Will my actions . . . 

  1. Honor God?
  2. Help others?
  3. Allow me to care for myself?
  4. Use my gifts effectively for a noble goal?

If yes to all four, proceed in faith.

  1. Laura, this post is so timely for me. Our Sunday School lesson for Sunday is titled “Choosing to Trust God” & makes the point the we should choose to trust God, even when we don’t “feel” like trusting God. The scripture & questions are so appropriate. Thanks for sharing this.
