When You’re Afraid to Make the Wrong Decision 
By Rick Warren

“He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.” Psalm 23:3 (NIV)

Sometimes you’re afraid of making the wrong decision. And that creates stress.

But God has an antidote to indecision. Psalm 23:3 says, “He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake” (NIV). The way to handle the stress of decision-making is to let God guide you.

You may be thinking, “But I’ve tried this!” You asked God to guide you, but then you became more confused than ever before. You still couldn’t figure it out, and you wondered why knowing God’s will is so difficult.

Is God playing games with you? Of course not! God wants to guide you. He wants you to know his will more than you want to know it. But sometimes you look for the wrong thing when you’re trying to find God’s will. We all do this.

Some of us look for a feeling. Some want a formula or recipe to follow. Others take a magical approach and look for God to show us a fantastic sign.  

But these ways only lead to frustration and can cause you to miss God’s will.

God doesn’t want you confused, and he does not want you stressed over making a decision. He is there, guiding you every step of the way. During the next few days, we’ll look together at how you can let God guide you.

This is his promise, and you can believe it to be true: “He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.”
