Tomar uma Decisão

For I alone know the thoughts that I entertain respecting you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you a happy future and hope.

Jeremias 29:11

5 In Gib’on the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream of the night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee.

6 And Solomon said, Thou hast shown unto thy servant David my father great kindness, just as he walked before thee in truth, and in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart with thee; and thou hast kept for him this great kindness, and thou hast given him a son who sitteth on his throne, as it is this day.

7 And now, O Lord my God, thou hast made thy servant king in the place of David my father: and I am but a young lad; I know not how to go out or come in.

8 And thy servant is in the midst of thy people which thou hast chosen, a great people, that cannot he numbered nor counted for multitude.

9 Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, to discern between good and bad; for who would otherwise be able to judge this thy great people?

10 And the speech was pleasing in the eyes of the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing.

11 And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; and hast not asked for thyself riches, nor hast asked the life of thy enemies; but hast asked for thyself discernment to understand how to give judgment:

12 Behold, I have done according to thy word; lo, I have given thee a wise and a discerning heart; so that like unto thee there was none before thee, nor after thee shall any one arise like unto thee.

1 Reis 3:5-12

Trust in the Lord with all thy heart: and upon thy own understanding do not rely.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he will make level thy paths.

Provérbios 3:5,6

Where there is no wise guidance, a people must fall: but it will obtain help through the multitude of counsellors.

Provérbios 11:14

In the lap the lot is cast: but from the Lord cometh the whole of its decision.

Provérbios 16:33

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he will make level thy paths.

Provérbios 3:6

1 He that separateth himself from God seeketh his own desires: at every sound wisdom is he enraged.

2 A fool hath no delight in understanding, but in laying open what is in his heart.

3 When the wicked cometh, then cometh also contempt, and with dishonorable acts, disgrace.

4 Like deep waters are the words of a wise man’s mouth, and a bubbling brook is the well–spring of wisdom.

5 It is not good to favor the person of the wicked, to wrest the cause of the righteous in judgment.

6 The lips of the fool come with contention, and his mouth calleth for blows.

7 The mouth of the fool is a destruction to himself, and his lips are the snare of his soul.

8 The words of a whisperer are as wounds, and they go down indeed into the innermost parts of the body.

9 He also that showeth himself slothful in his work is a brother to the destroyer.

10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower, whereunto the righteous runneth, and is placed in safety.

11 The rich man’s wealth is his strong town, and as a towering wall in his own conceit.

12 Before downfall the heart of man becometh haughty, and before honor goeth humility.

13 When one returneth an answer before he understandeth the question, it is folly unto him and shame.

14 The spirit of a man will readily bear his disease; but a depressed spirit who can bear:

Provérbios 18:1-14

Then said his wife unto him, Art thou still holding fast to thy integrity? renounce God, and die.

But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the worthless women would speak. What? should we accept the good alone, from God, and the evil we should not accept? With all this did Job not sin with his lips.

Jó 2:9,10
