Good day Black Creek 'People of the Word',


This week I noticed a pattern that sometimes (in) forms decision-making for me. 

- Gather facts and data  

- Evaluate the pros and cons 

- Pray for God to give direction 

- Put off making the decision as long as possible. 

Then move forward based on my 'gut feeling'.


When I look at that I ask myself...

Is more information better?

How important is evaluating if the final decision is a 'gut feeling'?

Is waiting procrastination or wisdom?

How do prayer  and God influence the 'equation'? 

How is faith in God a part of data and logic?


Proverbs 16:9   A man’s mind plans his way, 

but the Lord directs his steps [and] makes them sure. AMP


 Next Sunday, Oct 22 at 4:00pm - Christmas musical practice begins 

Saturday, Nov 4h at 10:00 am -     is the Shoebox packing party 


 Please continue to be steadfast in prayer for those in our midst who are in difficulty.


I am not sure if you follow a similar pattern to make decisions, 

It's not always a step-by-step process, but often all the steps together.

I find that each part of the process helps me be more confident that I haven't missed anything 'big'

by considering different angles and perspectives.

Throughout is a sense of God presence, what is right and wrong, Holy Spirit guiding me - listening to His voice 

including seeing Him 'move'  and 'direct' me in different ways.

Trusting that He is in each part of the process.


Proverbs 19:20  Listen to advice and accept instruction,     

that you may gain wisdom in the future.

21  Many are the plans in the mind of a man, 

but it is the purpose of the LORD that will stand. 


I trust that you know God's leading you as you step into the rest of this week. 

Walk with Him,

Peter Jackson
