13 Strategies to Guide Your Decisions by God’s Word

The following 13 strategies are taken from my recent training webinar, “Worry Stress, and Discovering God’s Word”

1) Strategy 1 – Is there a clear command/instruction in the Bible to do or not to do?

    * Exodus 20:14 – You shall not commit adultery (NASB95)

2) Strategy 2 – Look for indirect commands in the Scriptures

    * 2 Thessalonians 3:11 For we hear that some among you are leading an undisciplined life, doing no work at all, but acting like busybodies.

3) Strategy 3 – Look for Principles

    * 2 Thessalonians 3:13 But as for you, brethren, do not grow weary of doing good. (NASB95)

4) Strategy 4 – Look for Examples to follow or avoid

    * Example to avoid: The sin of David regarding Bathsheba and her husband Uriah
    * Example to follow: Prisca and Aquila (Romans 16:3-4)
