The importance of consulting God in decision making

Hi y’all! How are you doing? I really hope everything is going well with y’all. For me, I have been doing a lot of thinking; trying to understand a lot of things and get things in order. I have also been focused on school, trying to do amazingly well this school year. So, I am doing pretty fine, all thanks to God. Anyway, let’s get into today’s post.

Today’s topic is something I’ve been thinking about a lot. God has also shown me a couple of things regarding this topic. I’m pretty excited to share my thoughts and all the things shared with me with you guys. So, just keep reading!

We all know that decision making is an important part of life. Every action we take in this life is the result of a decision we make. The decisions we make determine how our lives will turn out. They determine whether we would achieve our God given purpose in this life or not. In all, decision making is a pretty big deal.

Due to the importance of decision making, it’s essential to consult God before making any decisions. God knows everything; He knows what’s going to happen before it really happens, so it’s best to ask Him first before we do anything. It’s only God that would help you to make the right decisions and do what’s right for you.

The Bible in Jeremiah 1 vs 5, says that God knew us even before we entered our mother’s womb. He knows what our lives will look like. He knows which steps are the right ones for us to take. He knows which decisions will make us and the ones that will destroy us. There’s a reason why God is called Omniscience God! It’s because He knows everything. So, why are we not talking to Him? Why are we not going to Him first? Why are we not consulting Him first?

The first mistake a lot of us make before we even make decisions is not asking God first. Most of us seem to forget that we have God for us. God who is willing to help us at anytime. God who tells us in Matthew 7 vs 7 that we should ask and we shall receive. If we just ask Him for help, He’ll surely give it to us because a father doesn’t ignore His children. God loves us and He wants us to know it. He’s going to always be there for us and He wants us to know it. So what are you waiting for? Why aren’t you acknowledging your Helper?

In all, I just want y’all to realize that the first and most important thing before we make any decision is to ask God for help. It really doesn’t matter how little you think that decision is. It can be what you want to eat or what you should wear. Anything at all!! God doesn’t mind, so why are you scared and afraid? God is a loving God, so you don’t need to be scared or afraid to go to Him in prayer for all your needs and your questions.

I just pray that God helps us to see that He truly wants us to come to Him and ask Him for help in Jesus name. Amen! That’s all for today y’all. If you have any question or thoughts about today’s post, you can just drop a comment. Bye y’all!

Please obey this verse. Don’t depend only on your own understanding, ask God for help and trust Him to help you to do the right thing.

Three ways to stay productive as school starts again…

Hi people! How are you doing? How has your week been? If you haven’t already noticed, I made some changes to this blog. I know, I am always making changes:) It is all for the best anyway. I changed the name of this blog and I also changed the theme and that’s all. Anyway, my week has been okay so far. I have been very productive this week and I really thank God for that. In this blog post, I will be sharing three of my secrets to being productive with y’all. Stay on and keep reading!

Honestly, I really understand how being productive can be very difficult sometimes but no worries because we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. Sometimes, we get very lazy or we just procrastinate everything we need to do out of habit. I hope these tips will help you to be more productive.

First, write a list of everything you have to do for the day( make a to-do list basically)

I know you’ve probably heard this one million times. I get it but the reason why it is being repeated every time is because it is actually really helpful. When you make a list of all the things you have to do, it motivates you to really do those things. You also remember that there are some things you need to do. There are some things you need to achieve. This moves you to get moving and start working. Also, the thing about making a to-do list is that, when you don’t do the things on that list, it makes you feel guilt. You feel guilty that you did not do what you were supposed to do. Y’all just really need to try it first. Just give it a trial and you’ll see that it is actually very helpful.

Second, keep your phone away from you for some time

This one works for me a lot and I am sure, it will work for you too. I know that our phones is one major reason why we never do the things we are supposed to do. The phone is a really big distraction and if you do not try to keep it away from you sometimes, I am afraid you’ll never get anything done. One thing I also know is that most of us are really addicted to our phones and we are worried about how we would keep it away from us. Don’t worry, you can definitely do it if I can do it. I can almost say that I am addicted to my phone as well but whenever I want to work or have work to do, I always make sure to put my phone where I cannot reach it. This has helped me to get a ton of work done. This method is so helpful, just give it a trial.

Lastly, think of your future and the dreams you badly want to achieve

This one is probably the best because it really motivates you to get up and do something. Please note that I am not telling y’all to start worrying too much about the future or start panicking, just put it all in God’s hand. What I am saying is that whenever you get lazy or start to procrastinate, just think of where you want to be in the future. This pushes you to start working and be productive because it helps you realize that in order to have that amazing future you desire, you have to work hard. Without hard work, you won’t achieve what you want. So, thinking of those dreams that you badly want to achieve moves you to be hard working. Just try it out and I know y’all will come back to give testimonies.

One last thing I want to mention is that you should always put God first in everything you do. Before carrying out any of these steps, make sure that you’ve already communicated with God first. God gives us guidance, so He helps us deal with any issues we have. He also has the answers to all our problems, hence why it is very important to always go to Him first.

I really hope y’all try out these things I have told y’all and I really hope it works for all of you. Thanks for reading! Bye:)
