(Proverbs 14:12) There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
Often times in life we paint things black or white, right or wrong and they are just that. However there are those gray areas of life and often times in our churches we avoid them. One obvious example is spousal abuse, if a woman or a man is being physically abused by their spouse there is no way the church should encourage the person being abused to stay in the relationship even though we know that the Bible says adultrey is the only grounds for divorce according to the Bible. The worst advice anyone could give is to tell them to hang in there and the person ends up dead by the hands of their spouse.
Life is full of gray areas situations that the world, even some churches may say is okay but as our scripture says the end is death. There are times when the obvious is not so obvious. What you’re feelings and emotions tell you to do sometimes you should not. Then there are times when what you feel that you should not do, you should do. We cannot let people or society even church folk help us decide which path to take nor what to do, who to associate with, or who to help out. So how do you decide when faced with one of life’s gray area situations? I’m glad you asked.
(Pro 3:5) Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
(Pro 3:6) In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
(Pro 3:7) Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
(Pro 3:8) It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
The type of relationship that you personally have with God will determine whether or not you’ll make the right decision when faced with a gray area situation. Because no matter what people may say or think if you seek God’s guidance and he places in your spirit a path to take, an answer as to what you should do in a gray area situation. If you follow his lead then God’s got your back and there is nothing anyone can say or do because If God is for you who can be against you. Be Encouraged and Blessed Minister Mike
