Questions to Ask Before You Decide
Sometimes Christians have a hard time deciding what to do in a specific situation that calls for clear decision. Here are some questions to ask that might help you in finding God’s will:

1. Can you ask God to bless your decision? Proverbs 10:22
2. Can you thank God for it? Colossians 3:17
3. Are you doing this to the glory of God? 1 Corinthians 10:31
4. Will your decision be a stumbling block to others? 1 Corinthians 8:9
5. Are you doing this to please God rather than people? Colossians 3:23
6. Have you thought ahead about the consequences of your decision? Galatians 6:7
7. Would you want to be doing whatever you decide when Jesus returns? Matthew 22:44
8. Does it promote love? Romans 13:8, 10

A Favorite Bible Verse (submitted by Lavina King) –
“The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty;
he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy;
he will rest in his love,
he will joy over thee with singing.”
Zephaniah 3:17
This verse never fails to make me feel special. He not only saves, but He rejoices over me, over us, with love, joy, and singing.

A Favorite Bible Verse (submitted by Lisa Petersheim)
They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that
goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed,
shall doubtless come again with rejoicing,
bringing his sheaves with him. Ps 126:5-6
This was my testimony when I was in Bangladesh. I hold to the promise for my life here.
