When life goes wrong and I am overwhelmed and don't know what to do, I often filter the right answer through a series of poor choices until I get there. Am I alone in this?
Let's have a contest. How long did it take you to choose Jesus in the midst of your struggle? Or did you first work your way through a bag of chips and a ton of chocolate? Did you yell at the children? Lock yourself and your gushing tears in the bathroom? Perhaps you ran a red light or blamed your spouse…
OR maybe you picked the right answer immediately. Maybe you whispered a prayer, got a minute with your Bible, and called a friend to pray for you. If this is you, I am so proud of you and so jealous too.
I have heard the reproof which puts me to shame, but out of my understanding my spirit answers me. (Job 20:3, AMP)
Prayer- Lord, give us the courage to pick you over everything else, all the time. Amen.
