Joyce Meyer – Follow Peace

 

If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of the giving God [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him.

— James 1:5 (AMPC)

Adapted from the resource Starting Your Day Right – by Joyce Meyer

Be careful when someone makes a suggestion that sounds good; not every good idea is a God-idea. Don’t rush into making a decision or accepting a new responsibility without praying about it first. Slow down long enough to ask God for wisdom, and listen for His guidance. Doing this before you decide will save you a lot of grief on the other side!

When you’re presented with an opportunity or a task, take a little bit of time to see if you have peace about the idea (see Colossians 3:15). If you have peace, go for it all the way. If you don’t have peace, you don’t even have to understand why you don’t have peace—just don’t do it!

Prayer Starter: Jesus, please help me be wise as I’m making decisions today. Thank You for promising to lead and direct my steps with Your peace. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
