No Way Out

I don’t know if you feel like this picture sometimes. We see all the “way out” signs, but sometimes it feels as if there is “no way out.”

Sometimes I come across various pictures that communicate different messages. I was thinking about when we are in the middle of a decision, we run across so many different opinions and “advice” from people. Instead of feeling like we have more clarity on a situation, we get more confused.

Please don’t misunderstand me. I am a strong advocate for getting advice and counsel. The Bible reminds us that “plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed” (Pr 15:22). But the important thing to remember is to hear God’s voice through the various advisers.

Jesus said, “I am the way” (Jn 14:6).

I am wondering if the next time we have to make an important decision or when we have to try to find our way out, we need to turn to Jesus more. This is translated as, “we need to be in a vibrant and intimate relationship with Christ in order to make wise and good decisions.”

In the past, when I have not been walking with Christ intimately, I have made some pretty bad decision. In fact, now I use that as a litmus test. I try not to rush to a decision if I am not connected to Christ. It makes me more dependent on Him.

God did not create us to go through a maze, even though we feel like it at times. If I would listen to His voice more I would be able to find my way out.
