Default How to decide?

We know that one of the twelve selected by the Lord was Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Him . To be sure, the Lord Jesus knew that Judas would betray Him. I believe that before making His selection, the Lord consulted with the Father in prayer. His appointing of the twelve was actually not the carrying out of His own will. Rather, it was the carrying out of the will of God the Father. I believe that the Father charged Him to select certain ones, including Judas. The Lord made His selection according to the Father’s will. Let us make our decisions by the working of the triune God in our being whatever happens in our life.

I have been seriously betrayed over the years by some of my close friends.

I guess then that all of my decisions have been according to the working of the Triune God in my being.

What kind of decisions in our lives are you talking about? We make decisions probably thousands of times a day.

I make the decision not to respond to this thread. Oh wait, I just did. That shows how good my decisions are!
