Insightful Discernment

And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best….  Philippians 1:9-10

We’ve all done it. We’ve made those dumb, what-was-I-thinking decisions. We can look back through the archives of our lives and see those times when we selected the wrong answers to life’s multiple choice questions. But like anything else in life, those bad decisions don’t happen just out of thin air. Poor decision making usually stems from inexperience, indifference or indignation. But God wants us to become insightful in order to make the right decisions.

Our lives are going by at a rapid pace. We face so many things that cause us to make split-second decisions concerning our families, our careers and even our faith. So we need to be prepared to make these quick decisions. The best tool to help us is God’s Word.

By studying what God has to say and gaining a general knowledge of his principles, we will begin to develop the spiritual insight needed to make the best decisions in our lives.

Look at the decisions you are making in a new light. Don’t just choose what feels good or looks right at the moment. Look first to God’s principles and how they apply to your life to help guide your decision making from this point on.


Lord, Thank you for providing guidance through your principles. Show me how to incorporate your love and knowledge to make wise decisions for my life. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
