Decisions are made by much deliberation but, truly, the best decisions come from looking within. For if you gaze into your heart, you can rely on the Holy Spirit to bring clarity and focus to your need; without the confusion that may enter your mind when you are simply trying too hard to ‘find’ the answer or ‘come up’ with a solution. Both of these indicate a man’s own interpretation to a situation or intervention to the solution and yet, the best decisions and answers come from your heart–sent from above.
- I know the end from the beginning.
- I know the minds and hearts of each one involved.
- I know the parameters and limitations.
- I know what you know and I know what you don’t know
Trust Me to guide you to the right solution.
Pray and seek wisdom.
Listen and look within.
I will surely not withhold; the good that you are seeking is the good that you will find.
Listening to your mind is like the blind leading the blind. Both will fall into a pit. So take no direction from your mind, but use your mind to follow My guidance from within. Your decisions and choices will be sure and confirmed.
True confidence you will find!

“Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with sighs too deep for words. And he who searches the hearts of men knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. We know that in everything God works for good with those who love him, who are called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:26-28
“Blessed be the Lord! For he has heard the voice of my supplications. The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts; so I am helped, and my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.” Psalms 28:6-7
