Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – Isaiah 48:17

This is what the LORD says– your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go. – Isaiah 48:17

Have you ever had to make a really difficult decision? I recall one time when I felt like I needed to drop out of college. It was after some prayer, and it seemed like I needed to stop pursuing a business degree and to go to Bible College instead.

It was tough to make this decision. I knew my grandparents might not be very happy with me, and I had a pretty good scholarship to college that I would be giving up. But I decided to obey what I felt God was calling me to do.

Life is full of difficult decisions.

Life is full of difficult decisions. Many times it can feel overwhelming trying to make the right decision. If you’re faced with a tough decision right now, you can be encouraged. God wants to lead you. He wants to guide you and show you which way to go.

God has your best interests at heart. So if He tells you no, as He did for me continuting my business degree, it’s best to obey. I realized now the confidence and reliance I gained in Bible College has helped me so much in life. God has your best interests at heart.

God wants to show you things to come and direct your paths. So go to Him. Ask Him for His leading and guidance and watch Him bring good things to pass in your life.
