Indecision is not from God

I found this scripture the other day and it spoke to me in a very powerful way. “Simply let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes’ and your ‘No’, ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one”. –Matthew 5:37

When we are faced with indecision, it’s time to get quiet and listen for God’s guidance. He will provide the insight and direction for us to go. It sometimes may only be gut feeling while other times we may see a clear and direct path. Often times we are searching for signs or that lightening bolt from sky but more times than not, it’s a still quite voice inside that leads us to the answer.

He tasks us to follow through by faith, moving forward with our decision and not looking back. Results come only when we take clear and decisive action. Indecision is not a peaceful place to be and God knows that. This scripture reminds us that when we stay in that place of indecision that is when we typically get into the most trouble and ultimately stall out. He wants so much for us and has such great plans for us. We need to take the first step and prayerfully seek Him in our indecision and be fully committed to whatever answer we feel led by – He will surely provide once we do.


  1. Wow! Amazing that you posted on this subject of "indecision". I use to not be that way, but lately I have found myself right in that indecisive spot...about many important things. I think mine may be from fear (yes, that is indeed from the evil one) of making the wrong choice. I only want God's will for our lives...and not having that lightening bolt or writing in the sky makes me feel unable to make the decision on my own. I am really trying to get over this, but's a challenge. Thank you so much for the encouraging words...I needed them! Have a blessed day!

  2. Thanks so much for your comment! It's so hard to trust your gut and step out in faith, especially on big decisions. That scripture really helped me gain clarity around it and hope it does the same for you. God Bless!
