CHRISTIAN POEMS AND DEVOTIONALS FOR THE SEARCHING AND WEARY
BIBICAL, PROMISES OF GOD, DECISION SUPPORT, GOD HELP ME, A GOOD DECISION, DECISION MAKING

 
A DECISION NEEDS TO BE MADE BUT WHAT IS THE RIGHT COURSE TO TAKE?

 
   I had become an earnest Christian and knowing God is real and cares for me and wants the best for me, it was natural for me to appeal to Him. But how am I to reach out to Him seeking help? Then at a bible study, we discussed this Scripture: 

   Gospel of Matthew Chapter 7:7-11 7 "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 9 Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! NKJV 

    Suddenly I realized I needed to focus on the promises of God given to us in the Bible. For since He is real, He will live up to His words and fulfill His promises. So what I needed to do was to believe in God’s promises, yes, have faith that God will respond to a prayer from me. Sometimes it is hard to have faith in God when the decision awaits a quick but studied action that can’t be avoided.

    Prolonging it to a later date becomes harder and harder. So how do I ask God for wisdom to do the right thing? Do I say a simple prayer and then every day thank God that He is answering my prayer? Or do I each day repeat the same request in case God is not listening. No, no, He is not a dull listener. So I will pray one time and then offer thank you prayers. Ok. Then this one time, how should I pray? It must be something special! I thought and thought about how to reach out to God.

   After much use of my little grey cells in my mind, I decided on a course of action. I went into my house office closing the door behind me. Then I prostrated myself on the floor. I began praising the Lord by singing softly a favorite hymn. It was then I asked God for wisdom based on the scripture promise of Matthew above. It was then that I concluded by thanking Him for hearing my prayer. 

   As the days passed I wanted to take the problem out of God’s hands and start worrying about it again. But instead I would then start a thank you prayer for the wisdom I would be receiving. These are times when our faith is tested. Do we really believe in God and His promises? Then at a time not of my choosing the circumstances developed along with an inner knowing what I was to do come to me so clearly in my reasoning mind. I knew God had responded in His loving nature to my plea. Praise Him.

   There are so many promises God has given us in His holy scriptures. Search for them! Believe in them when the going is tough and become a tough seasoned Christian. On this web site, there are listed some of many promises you will find in the Bible. May God bless you on your journey with Him and His promises of which the greatest is eternal life, with your sins covered by the blood of Jesus, and a new home in Heaven. Your needs will vary on subject but God will hear them all for He has promised so in His holy scriptures.

LISTED BELOW ARE PRECIOUS PROMISES FROM GOD BY SUBJECT MATTER
 
HUMBLE - - Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor. James 4:10

JOY - - For you will not leave my soul among the dead or allow your holy one to rot in the grave. You will show me the way of life granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever. Psalm 16: 10-11

GRACE - - For the Lord God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right. Psalm 84:11 But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, 5 that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) 6 For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. 7 So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of his grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all he has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:5-8

ABIDE - - Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends. 21 Those who are victorious will sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat with my Father on his throne. Revelations 3:20 ASK FOR WISDOM - - But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted! 8 When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father. John 15:7-8

GUIDANCE - - He will protect his faithful ones, but the wicked will disappear in darkness. No one will succeed by strength alone. Those who fight against the Lord will be shattered. 1 Samuel 2:9

AGAINST FEAR - - This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
