    2 Thessalonians 1:11-12,"May He give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do. Then the name of our Lord Jesus will be honored because of the way you live, and you will be honored along with him." 



    What do you think causes the majority of stress in your life? Think about this: What do you deal with daily that comes at you from countless directions? The thing you're never 100% sure about? The answer: Decisions. 


    Should I say “yes” or “no”? Should I take this opportunity or make this change? Wouldn't you love some simplicity in your complex, decision-making life? God offers us a simple solution: put your "yes" on what He says "yes" to and your "no" on what He says "no" to.  


    The Bible is His love letter to you. And just like a loving parent, He has instructed you on every topic from relationships to work to friendships to money, to help simplify your life. It can be challenging because it can mean doing something unpopular or something you don't fully understand. But, it also means putting your trust in the everlasting, all-knowing, all-powerful, and all-loving Heavenly Father, who has an amazing plan and purpose for your life!  



    Identify some decisions you're unclear on right now. Take time today to look those subjects up in the Bible and ask for advice from someone who is putting their "yes" on God's "yes" and "no" on God's "no.”  



    God, please give me Your wisdom and discernment to make the best decisions today. Protect, guide, and give me the courage to do what is right when I lack confidence. Help me to remember that You are with me and have the best for my life. In Jesus' name, Amen.
