FIRST CHOICE

Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. Proverbs 4:7, NKJV

We make numerous decisions every day, probably even every hour. Sometimes, we put a lot of thought into our decisions. Other times, we make decisions without even thinking. But of all the decisions we make, one is the most important: choosing to make Jesus the center of our lives.

Jesus wants to be our first choice. He wants to walk alongside us and guide us into the destiny He has for us according to Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Jesus knows better than us what the best way is. “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts” (Isaiah 55: 8-9).

If you are faced with making tough decisions concerning your students, your health, your family, or your career, you can trust that Jesus can and will give you the answer. Choose to seek Him and His infinite wisdom.

Dear Heavenly Father, You are the beginning and the end. Your wisdom is infinite. I humbly ask for You to fill me with Your wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. In Jesus’s name, I pray, amen.
