Decisions should be made without any doubt. If we sense uncertainty, we must wait until His peace is attained. If it’s only 80%, wait for the 20% hesitation to be resolved. It might be something He will show us that needs to be worked on before going forth; the timing might not be right or all the pieces might not be in place. Whatever the reason, if we wait for total assurance we will walk in the best God has for us.
We must pay attention to the checkmarks because some, if not considered, will become roadblocks. Some can be overlooked because they seem insignificant. We cannot ignore anything that hinders our peace. The Lord leads us not to move by giving us a lack of peace. If we realize there is a direction we have taken that we were not sure of at the time, we humbly surrender the situation to the Lord. He will make every crooked place straight and bring restoration.
It is to be differentiated from self-doubt which comes from our carnal nature. The reservations are then pertaining to us, and often come after we have made a faith decision. We pray for the Lord to remove any doubts so we can hear clearly and move with surety in our steps. Let’s take heed to the precious witnessing of the Holy Spirit. He will guide us into all truth. We can depend on Him, from glory to glory!
