but the Lord establishes their steps. Proverbs 16:9 (NIV)
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. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. James 1:5-6 (NIV)
These verses challenge me when I'm in the "decision-making" process. If I have a decision to make, sometimes I forget to include God in that process. Often what happens is that I make my choice then tell God to bless it. And then there I am, being blown and tossed by the wind.
I need to remind myself that God is wise, and that He does truly care about "little ol' me. He wants to hear my choices, He wants to guide me in them...generously.
This also why we try to make it a habit to pray with our clients. Finances demand wisdom to handle! And praying with our clients assures them of God's care...and assures us that He is with us as we guide and direct others to manage their money wisely.
PRAYER: Father, I know that you love me even more than I can understand. Please help me to always come to you to ask for guidance in my life and in the decisions I make. Thank you for always being there to listen and answer. Amen.
