…[He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.
— 2 Timothy 1:7 (AMPC)
Many people struggle with indecision (the inability to make a decision) and double mindedness (constantly changing their minds) because of fear or a lack of confidence. However, you can make a decision and stick with it because you have discipline and a calm, well-balanced mind.
You can easily feel overwhelmed by all the decisions you need to make daily unless you have confidence in your ability to make right ones. Don’t ever say again, “I have a hard time making decisions,” because when you think and speak like that you are setting yourself up for confusion. Instead, you can believe the next time you need to make a decision that you will hear from God, be led by the Holy Spirit, and know what to do. Even if you have had difficulty doing so in the past, this is a new day for you, and you are in charge of your thinking—it is no longer in charge of you!
Prayer of the Day: Lord, please help me have a calm mind. Help me take control of my thinking, so that it becomes easier and easier to make right decisions, amen.
