July 9 – Ask For Spiritual Guidance When Making Decisions

Daily Bible Life

King Herod lost his mind during his birthday party; he allowed a little girl to manipulated him into killing John the Baptist. The scripture reported, “But when Herod’s birthday was celebrated, the daughter of Herodias danced before them and pleased Herod. Therefore, he promised with an oath to give her whatever she might ask. So she, having been prompted by her mother, said, “Give me John the Baptist’s head here on a platter.” And the king was sorry; nevertheless, because of the oaths and because of those who sat with him, he commanded it to be given to her. So he sent and had John beheaded in prison. And his head was brought on a platter and given to the girl, and she brought it to her mother.” (Matthew 14:6-11).

 

Lesson:

Christians must ensure they are ruled by the Holy Spirit at all times. We must not allow any emotions to cloud our judgment and make any irrational decisions that will cause us to sin against God. Indeed, humans are fallible; we are prone to mistakes, and we must rely on the leadership of the Holy Spirit to guide our thoughts and actions in order to appease God! We must carefully evaluate our thoughts and actions so that we are sure it is up to the Bible standard. We must ensure not to comply with any counsel that contradicts God’s law.

A Christian who wants to make a good decision must be a prayerful person! He presents his thoughts to God through prayers. All Christians must understand that we have no other choice than to satisfy God by leading a life of holiness! We must operate in love and honor God with our practices at all times.

 

Prayer:

Dear God, please help me to operate under the leadership of your Holy Spirit so that I can always make a decision that glorifies your name. Please do not let me yield to the leadership of the flesh so that I will not sin against you! Please guide me to make proper judgments and conclusions void of emotions. Also, don’t let me follow evil counsels! Let my thoughts and actions lead to the glorification of your name at all times. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.
