Peace with God and the peace of God in a man’s heart and the joy of fellowship with Christ have in themselves a beneficial effect upon the body and mind, and will lead to the development and preservation of physical and mental power. Thus, Christ promotes the best interest of the body and mind as well as of the spirit—in addition to inward peace, the development of spiritual life, the joy and fellowship with Christ, and the new strength that come with being born again. There are certain special privileges that only the true Christian can enjoy. There is, for example, the privilege of having divine wisdom and guidance continually.

Praying about decisions we need to make doesn’t mean we stop thinking about them—not at all. In fact, we should be asking God to help us understand our choices more clearly, and to decide which is best. The Bible says, “How much better to get wisdom than gold” (Proverbs 16:16).

God’s way is always best—and the reason is because He loves us and wants what is best for us. God has not left us to muddle through life on our own! He loves us, and He wants to guide us—and He will, as we turn in faith to Him and seek His will.

Don’t let your pride, or anything else, keep you from seeking God’s will for your life. Instead, face honestly your need for His forgiveness and help, and by faith humbly open your heart and life to Jesus Christ.
