Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. – Colossians 3:16 (NLT)
You might be faced with a decision today. Do I go on a missions trip with my youth group? Or do I attend volleyball camp and get extra practice to make the volleyball team? It can be really hard to know what the right choice is. How can you be confident that you hear from God concerning decisions like these?
First of all, you’ve got to know that God wants to speak to you. He wants to show you things to come and help you make good decisions. Once you’ve got that settled in your heart, then determine to do what today’s Bible verse says.
It’s challenging you to let the message or word of God fill our lives. Hearing from God often involves getting into the word of God. As you read your Bible, God will often lead you to a scripture that will help you make a decision. He often leads us through His word.
So today, if you haven’t already, decide to spend some time in God’s word. By getting into God’s word, you get God’s heart into your head and it helps you make a good decision. God wants to speak to you, you’ve just got to silence the noise around you and learn to spend time listening to Him.
