How to Improve Decision Making

Would you like to improve your decision making? Consider the suggestions from Henry and Richard Blackaby in Spiritual Leadership.

  • Evaluate Your Decisions: Every decision has consequences. Make it a practice to evaluate the results of your decisions.
  • Walk Closely with God: When you struggle to make a decision, consider the struggle as an indicator that you need some quiet time with God. Remove distractions and focus on Him.
  • Seek God’s Vision: There is no value in making progress in the wrong direction. Always seek God’s direction. Seeking the mind of God at the front end of a decision can save you years of painful regret later.
  • Seek God’s Wisdom: The book of Proverbs is packed with God’s wisdom. If you aren’t getting clear direction from where you are in your daily reading, spend some time in Proverbs.

Direction of Your Affection

Leader, what is the direction of your affection? Is it inward, outward, or upward (Col 3:1-4)? Do you sometimes find your affection torn in different directions? Consider the caution that John gives us (1John 2:15-17). David, a man after God’s own heart (Acts 13:22), expressed this struggle in Psalm 119:36-37. In your own words, pray back those verses to God.
