10 Bible Verses to Help You Make Decisions

Sunday Scripture Blog Series

One of the hardest things for me is to make personal decisions. It seems when I’m at work, I have no problems making decisions. However, at home I get struck with this overwhelming fear that keeps me from really making a decision and following through with it. There was a time that I could make decisions on the fly and just go with the flow. But I learned that when I did that, myself or others would get hurt in some way. So I’ve learned to be cautious; sometimes too cautious. So here’s 10 verses that I’ve learned to pray over when I need a little help with a decision I’m facing. These are from my Life Application Study Bible: New Living Translation.
