How To Make Big Decisions With God

When we face big decisions, it can be paralyzing. No one wants to make the wrong decision, but we also don’t want to wait too long to make the call. When you’re looking at the big things: moving your family to a new place, stepping into a new calling, dropping everything to pursue something new… it’s important to make these decisions with God.

In this video, I share five things that have kept me focused in times of moving from one fruitful assignment to the next.

  • Prophecy. For every major decision in my life, there has been prophetic clarity. To know it’s not just your own good idea is valuable. Wait on God for confirmation.

    “Big decisions need big directions.” - John Wimber

  • Blessing. Look for the unplanned things that seem to “just happen” but you know is the Holy Spirit blessing you. When you see the way God has been moving in your past, it can indicate the way for you to move forward.
  • Faith. Have faith that whatever you don’t know, God will help you to learn.
  • Prayer. Pray that God will bring you what you need. For example, if you don’t lead worship, pray that God will send you the people who do.
  • Vision. Be able to talk about your vision, or what it will look like. When people come to join you—all you have is vision. You need to be able to communicate the vision clearly to keep you and the people God sends you on track.

    P.S. We’ve built a conference around connecting attendees with the Holy Spirit. As you seek His guidance and courage, pray about attending Greater Things this summer. I believe it will be a key time for all involved, and I’m bringing in speakers and worship leaders that God has put on my heart for this season.

      Thank you, Randy! This was very timely and so on target for me, as God is preparing me for a new season, in a new location. I have spent four of the past seven years teaching English and training English teachers abroad. Soon, the Lord will be taking me back to the U.S. for a season to teach me more. I have seen the problems with higher education internationally and there is this fire inside me to change things at a governmental level, to help the teachers and students do what God created them to do, and to bring life and hope in Jesus' Name. I have spent parts of the last several days praying into the vision and it is getting clearer. I feel like this video message is part of the confirmation for me. And yes, I have registered for the Greater Things conference in August, although my grant isn't finished until September 1. God even confirmed the conference in a really funny way. I only had the courage to register and pay, because of what He did in January 2013, sending me to one of your healing conferences at Bethel. At that time, He told me to register and pay, even though I was set for jury duty on those dates. Needless to say, I was released from jury duty! I believe the Lord will take me out of this grant in time to get to Nashville for the conference. I am expecting Greater Things! By the way, my new home in the U.S. will be Tennessee; I thought it was Nashville and even applied at Vanderbilt to get a degree in education policy. But He gave me the name of where I will actually be... I hope to write about the parts of my story where you have had impact... it has been too long, but I am finally outgrowing procrastination and fear! May God continue to bless you richly! Kim
