The bible teaches that when you try to treat people fairly, that God takes care of your interests and when you are consistent in your devotion to God, God guards your character.
In the last two years since getting laid off from work, there were multiple times where the right choice seemed like the wrong choice and the wrong choice seemed like the right choice. But, by seeking and accepting God’s guidance, I rejected the choices God told me to reject and pursued the choices God told me to pursue.
In the past few weeks along, I was presented with options where I went against everything my knowledge and training had told me to follow and do. It turned out, that the right choice was going against my previous training and skilled sets. At the time, I could not have possibly known that the correct choice consisted of making decisions that I considered to be stupid and irrational but I followed the path I thought I was called to do and it turned out that those were the correct choices after all.
I wrote a note in my journal recently that our knowledge is always limited because we are not God. The smartest person in the world can only see part of the picture and not the whole thing. This is why, it’s important to rely on God, if you want to make sure your choices are correct. God sees things in your situation that you do not.
As Bill Gates said, maximizing your chances does not guarantee success.
