We don’t have to look far to see that many people in the world are dealing with a variety of problems and are in need of solutions. No matter what problem you are facing — whether it is emotional, psychological or spiritual — Jesus Christ holds the solution that you need. As we walk together in this podcast, we will address a number of topics that exist in the world and present solutions from the Bible that will help you heal and live life more abundantly. Our aim in this podcast is: (1) to introduce you to our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, the ultimate source of all healing; (2) to provide you with information that will help you to understand the problem; and (3) to help you by providing solutions to your problems.

Our passage from the Word of God today is Psalm 37:4. It reads, “Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.”

Our quote for today is from Blaise Pascal. He said, “In each action we must look beyond the action at our past, present and future state, and at others whom it affects, and see the relation of all those things. And then we shall be very cautious.”

The problem we are discussing today is “Decision Making and the Will of God” (part 5) from the book, “The Guide to Biblical Counseling” by Dr. Tim Clinton and Dr. Ron Hawkins.

Dr. Clinton and Dr. Hawkins continue:

Joshua 3:4 says, “Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure: come not near unto it, that ye may know the way by which ye must go: for ye have not passed this way heretofore.”

Every day brings new experiences and new challenges that stretch our faith in God. Without God, people are left to wonder what direction to take. With God, believers can know that every new day is in His hands and He will guide according to His eternal plan.

As the Israelites followed the ark to “know the way,” so we can look to God and His Word to know the way He wants us to go.

1 Kings 12:8 reads, “But he forsook the counsel of the old men, which they had given him, and consulted with the young men that were grown up with him, and which stood before him:”

Rehoboam’s unwillingness to listen to the older and wiser men ultimately led to the division of his kingdom.

It is wise to seek counsel, but then we must compare that advice to God’s Word. God knows the way we should go.
