If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. – James 1:5 (NIV)
Do you wish that you could magically see into the future? Do you wish that you knew what person to date, or what college you should go to? Sometimes, it would be nice to just know exactly what to do and what the future holds.
Today’s Bible verse gives us some insight into what we can do when we lack wisdom and don’t know what to do. The verse tells us to ask God for help. The great news about asking for God’s help is that He gives it freely, with no strings attached.

Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path. – Psalm 119:105
How many times in life do you just wish that you knew the ‘right’ thing to do? You might be faced with a decision on where to go to school, who to date, or which sport to play this year. All of these decisions have consequences and you wish that someone would just tell you what to do.
When it comes to making decisions, it’s often easy to ignore what this Bible verse tells us. It says the Bible is a lamp to guide our feet and a light for our path. This verse tells us that when we don’t know what the right choice is, we should rely on God’s word for help. God’s word can be the answer to your questions. It can be the light to show you which path to take. The key is to spend time in God’s word and get to know what God says. God’s word will bring light and help you make the right decision.

If we spend time reading the Bible and getting to know Jesus, we find that often the decision we are to make seems much clearer. So the next time you’re faced with a tough decision, do what this Bible verse says. Spend some time in God’s word and let it guide you into making good decisions.
The LORD directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. – Psalm 37:23 (NLT)
Have you ever watched a couple when they first started dating? They stare into each other’s eyes, giggle about every little thing the other person says. They have all these silly jokes. When people first start dating, the newness of their relationship makes them delight in each other. They can’t wait to see the other person. And just thinking of that person makes them smile.
God wants you to delight in Him. Not just to go to him on a Sunday for a little pep talk, but to really delight in Him. To be excited to spend time with Him and just hear what He has to say. He wants you to get to know Him and show you important things about your future.

You’ve got to make yourself open to Him and his desires. As you do, God will direct your steps. He will show you the right decision to make and help you through the decision making process.
God wants to lead you and guide you. Be open to what He has to say and don’t be afraid to step out and do what He is telling you to do. Be fearless and step out today.
