Decision-making is sometimes annoying. Does it align with the Lord’s will? He has already shown us what is good (Micah 6:8). He has also let us know that he prefers our obedience to our offerings (1 Samuel 15:22). But the answer becomes vague when I judge my decision with the outcomes. Most of the time, the outcomes cannot be seen immediately. It may take a long time to know if my decision is right or wrong because, in the view of the Lord, a day is like a thousand years (2 Peter 3:8). Also, what is good in my eyes is not necessarily the same in His for His thoughts are higher than mine (Isaiah 55:9). Or I shouldn’t judge a decision by the outcome, because God can even turn a curse into a blessing at his will (Deuteronomy 23:5). Does it mean that I need not care if a decision aligns the Lord’s will? But in fact, the Lord has said that he will guide me in the path of righteousness. That’s it. He said: “He refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.- Psalm 23:3”. So I no longer ask if it is in His will, but if I let the Holy Spirit refresh my soul. The decisions made by the Holy Spirit will give me several immediate feelings: “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control - Galatians 5:22”. None of them is dispensable.
