Seek the Truth with all your heart.
When you have decisions to make, especially decisions in which you just do not know what to do, which way to turn, or which way, or how, to decide; ask (pray to) GOD, and if nothing comes to you over a while, just wait on GOD, and just in case HE is waiting for you to take a step in whatever way, if it is the wrong direction, HE will correct you. Sometimes that wrong first step is the one which leads to the right direction. GOD is usually waiting for you to make a move so that HE can influence your direction; just as you cannot steer a vehicle unless it is moving; if it remains stationary it is impossible to steer it in any direction at all.
We often ask why it is frequently this way; but maybe GOD wants us to learn a lesson to enable us to make the right decision. Maybe HE knows that certain other thing need to happen before the time and circumstances are right for the right outcome to happen.
Every decision and choice has a consequence, and some consequences can be very costly.
Pray – ask - GOD for HIM to give you wisdom; not only for your immediate matter, but in everything.
GOD knows the outcome which we cannot see. Ask and trust GOD for HIS guidance.
GOD knows the best timing for everything and often takes time to answer, and the answer might be very gentle so that a day comes when suddenly it arrives in your mind, about which you have very clear peace. That peace might come when you are in conversation with someone who says something which triggers the answer you have been waiting for.
GOD may have been delaying it until the right time, and testing your patience in the process.
Isaiah 46:10 ‘I (GOD) make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is to come. I say: MY purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.’
Jeremiah 29:11-13 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on ME and come and pray to ME, and I will listen to you. You will seek ME and find ME when you seek ME with all your heart.”
