What Do I Do? What Does the Bible Say?

As we go through life, we make decisions. Sometimes the decisions are big; sometimes they are small. But decisions always have ramifications. The difficulty comes when we can make a case for doing two opposite things. For instance, “Should I buy a car or should I wait?” One could make a case for each. We need wisdom to make right and best decisions.

 

Whatever the decision is, the question comes down to this? “What do I do?” The answer to this question should be, “What does the Bible say?” This is what Paul prays regarding the Ephesians: “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him” (Eph. 1:17).

 

The spirit of wisdom” is the ability to apply Scripture correctly. “Revelation” has to do with what God has revealed in His Word. You could say it this way: “What do I do? What does the Bible say?”

 

When you make decisions, you want to go to God’s Word. Pray about it (James 1:5), identify the actual issue (don’t focus on the immediate circumstances), and work at thinking of verses or examples that apply to your situation. Getting wise counsel gives safety (Pro. 11:14). The right decision will align Scripturally. “What do I do? What does the Bible say?”
