Find wisdom in God’s Word.
First and foremost, God has given us His Word. It is alive, active, and powerful (see Hebrews 4:12). Jesus is called “the Word made flesh” (John 1:14). So, when we read and study the Bible, we’re not just reading a good book; we are spending time with God Himself!
The more we read, study and fill our minds with God’s Word, the more intimately acquainted we become with Him, and the easier it becomes to hear His voice when we need to make a decision.
Let the Holy Spirit lead you.
The Holy Spirit wants to “guide you into all the truth.” And it’s not just about the big stuff. He wants to help guide you in every little detail of your life. When we encounter various situations in life that require His wisdom and direction, the Holy Spirit will help remind us of what God’s Word says to do. You can trust Him to lead you and help you make the best decision possible.
One way we can be certain we are hearing from God about the decisions we are making is to follow peace. Colossians 3:15 shares one of the most important principles we can learn about making good decisions. It says, And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds.... (AMPC).
Step out and find out.
Don’t be afraid to step out and do what’s in your heart. I remember one particular day when I was trying to decide to move forward in a certain area. I believed the Lord was leading me to step out, but I still had doubts. I didn’t want to take that step unless I was 100 percent certain it was God
