The truth be told here, this is at least 98% of the time. In general, then, we really don’t have the right answers or know what to do.
Okay, some things are clear enough. It is always right to feed hungry babies or that it is wrong to kill innocent people, but for most activities in our life: we really don’t know.
No one is really sure if they should take this job or that one, or marry this girl or another or even should buy a particular car or not. This is true for most things we do in life.
In fact, for most things: I believe we have God’s permission to do as we wish. Now this doesn’t mean we will make the wisest choice, but simply it’s no big deal to God one way or another.
Saying this another way: say, we wish to buy a red shirt over a black one. Doesn’t this really matter?
I don’t think God gives one big hoot which one in this situation, but I do believe God is concerned in reference to what we do with our things in life.
Rephrasing: I believe God cares if we are selfish with our things, if our concern is for others or mostly ourselves. These things I am sure God has a penchant for.
Yet, for those other choices: No, we don’t know. And yes, I know some will say a little voice in their head will assist them in choosing, but still…one here is operating out of faith and not true knowledge of circumstances.
Obviously from the beginning of this Post: It doesn’t matter.
The truth is: as Christians, all our choices and activities should be based on faith. And in faith, we will not truly know. Instead, our trust is placed on the Lord that all is well and that He will direct our steps and paths. So then, the certainty is simply not here. There is an uneasiness in our selections but a comfort in that God blesses us for trusting Him. However, unlike what we would desire, we will never really know: and our actions out of humility is what creates that wonderful dependence on our Lord. In Him, we live beyond simple knowledge or the wisdom of this world. In Him we gather together the entire source of life itself and in that: God knows it all.
