Why All The Gray Area?

Read: 2 Corinthians 1:15-24

Life is full of gray area. From true/false questions on a college exam to following presidential candidates during an election year, we are constantly asked to take sides on issues that leave us sitting on the fence. How can we make a clear decision about an argument we find ourselves justifying both sides of? With so much room for gray area, it’s easy for confusion to set in as we allow doubt to take hold of our confidence.

As Christians, it can be difficult to distinguish between true and false or yes and no. The world we live in today allows room for gray area, confusion and doubt. However, in Paul’s letter to the Corinthians, he assures us that all of God’s promises are true. 2 Corinthians 1:20 states, “For no matter how many promises God has made, they are ‘Yes’ in Christ. And so through him the ‘Amen’ is spoken by us to the glory of God.” God’s promises allow no confusion and we do not need to doubt them, for all of His word is true. Our duty is to trust God and remember that His word will never come back void. Paul goes on to instruct the Corinthians to give God the glory and stand firm, for God has given us the Holy Spirit as an advance of our future kingdom in Heaven.

So how do we stand firm and trust in God’s promises? We have to become confident in who God is and who we are in Him. The closer we are to Him, the more confident we can be. Spending time reading God’s word, talking to Him through prayer and actively participating in His church will help us trust God for the correct guidance each day and for every decision.


  • Is there a decision you are facing today that seems gray?  If so, have you read God’s promises, asked Him for clarity and sought wise counsel from someone you trust? If you don’t have someone to talk to, consider joining a group!
  • Think about one time God was faithful in keeping His promises to you. How can you use this experience to build your confidence for the future?
