In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Proverbs 3:6 (NIV)
Over the course of recorded human history, writers concerning life indicate it is a journey of decision making. Persons unable or unwilling to make decisions usually have a very difficult time in their lives ahead of them. Along this road of life are persons stalled between, yes and no; caution and perhaps; baby steps and giant steps.
When Julius Caesar, a Roman general of the first century B.C., was asked by one his subordinates commanders how he planned to conquer Gaul, Caesar responded, “Keep moving forward until there is no more land to conquer.”
In order for a person to make decisions, he or she must be willing to do want needs to be done. Those unable or unwilling to decide usually stem from fear. It is not from a lack of intelligence or being smart enough but from a lack of courage, faith in their skills or abilities, and a fear of failure. For those who want to do well in life; one must dispel their fears; be willing to learn from their failures; have the courage to dust themselves off and get back up to begin what they started or look for something new to accomplish.
Lord, in all the decisions I must make, I need to know what you would advise. Grant me Your wisdom, Lord, let no mistake nor a well-thought-out intention, jeopardize Your will for my life. If I do the very best I can, I still need your seal of blessings on any plan.
