None of us would expect to find two strangers waiting on our doorstep. I'm sure she didn't either.
Wouldn't it be dangerous to let them in? Are these the wanted criminals she'd heard rumors about? Why her house? Why now?
No doubt, questions swirled like a tornado in her mind. She had her family to think about. Her home. Her future. Yet at a time when she had to make a life-altering decision, she seemed to know exactly what to do.
Her name was Rahab, and she was a stellar decision-maker.
I often strive to be a better decider. I can't tell you how many times I've prayed, "God, tell me what to do!"
But the thing is, sometimes God gives us opportunities to make choices so we can grow in wisdom. He loves us that much. But it's during those times the enemy would like to convince us that God has left us alone. That He abandoned us. But that's nothing but a lie meant to discourage us, because God's Word says this.
Rahab's story reminds me of this truth.
Her story has inspired me to become better at making decisions. And if you've ever struggled with decision-making like I have, I hope you'll join me.
I created something new to help us on this journey, a mini-Bible study called Walking with Rahab: A 5-Day Challenge to Better Decision-Making.
In this 5-day challenge, we will walk with Rahab through the challenging decisions she faced and learn valuable truths through her actions and words. Truths that we can apply to our own lives today.
You'll get 5 days of devotions sent to you by email. At the end of the 5 days, I will also send you a Scripture-based prayer printable for those times when you have a difficult decision to make. It's my gift to you:)

This month I will be welcoming some friends here to share about times when they had to make decisions, and the discoveries they made through God's Word. Because it helps to hear from people who've been there.
We may not always make the right choices, and that's OK. But we can learn how to have joy and peace through the decision-making process.
