@db20747 Anything is possible! However, there are some things in life that are even better than gold and silver. Proverbs 16:16 King James Version (KJV) 16 How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!
@1hopefulman Maybe not usually but certainly occasionally. I remember distinctly that once I had to decide between two opposing things. After choosing one, I soon felt bad and got a stomach ache. I slept on it and when the feeling was still there in the morning, I chose the alternative. I soon felt better.
I utilize all of the above mentioned methods except prayer. Never considered that one but hey, at times prayer may be as good as any I do a lot of researching on the internet and also recommendations from friends depending on the decision to be made. Knowledge is fundamental in making an informed decision.
Yes, it's a good thing to see seek higher wisdom from someone who really cares for us! James 1:5 Amplified Bible (AMP) 5 If any of you lacks wisdom [to guide him through a decision or circumstance], he is to ask of [our benevolent] God, who gives to everyone generously and without rebuke or blame, and it will be given to him.
