What Is Your Ultimate Authority for Making Decisions?

Description

Ask God to speak to you through His Word. When it comes to living well, God’s Word knows best.

All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16).
What is your ultimate authority for making important decisions? Is it your knowledge? Intuition? Your experience? Is it people you want to please? Is it contemporary culture? Is it a synagogue, church, or certain spiritual leader?

I want to suggest God’s Word. God has created you for a purpose. He knows how you work best. The way He speaks is through His written Word. It is perfectly true. It applies to every age, race, and nation.

On some things, the Bible is clear, things like murder, stealing, adultery, and forgiveness. When it doesn’t speak to a specific issue (like which mutual funds to invest in, whom to marry, or whether to accept a new job), it gives perfect principles we need to know to make the best decisions—those that are pleasing to God.

So try reading it. Start with the New Testament. Ask God to speak to you through His Word. When it comes to living well, God’s Word knows best.
