Do You Always Make the Right Decisions?

Article written by Brother Bledsoe

These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
John 14:25-26

Question: Do you always make the right decisions? With all the twists and turns through the maze of life, do you always know which way to go? Did you know that if you will sincerely seek the help of the Holy Ghost (Spirit), and if you will do what He directs you to do that you will never make a wrong decision and you will never go in the wrong direction.

How do I know this? First, I have the evidence of the Word of God; which just happens to the best evidence that there is. As you probably know, the Apostle Paul and those who worked with him, were guided by the Holy Spirit to go where they went and at times were not permitted where he wanted to go because the Holy Spirit said no. (See Acts 16:7). Right after Paul was refused permission to go into Asia, God gave him the Macedonian call. There he was used greatly of God to proclaim the gospel.

The Evidence of Experience

Next, I have the evidence of experience. I have at times listened to the Spirit and at times I have overrode His directions—much to my chagrin. There were times when I went when I wasn’t sent and times that I was led to go but didn’t. I know, there have many times when I wasn’t the sharpest tool in the shed (still not). However, I don’t have to be. All that I have to do is seek the help of the Holy Spirit and He has, and will always lead me in the right direction. If I don’t know what to say, He will give me the words and if I don’t have the good sense to keep my mouth shut, He will not give me the opportunity to speak.

The Comforter is the Holy Ghost and the Holy Ghost is God. He knows what is best for you and me. Let’s seek His help and He will be there for us. Never ignore Him and in the process of it all, we will be victorious. Amen.
