MAKE GODLY DECISIONS
(Let God’s Word Guide Your Choices)
Where you are today is a result of the decisions you made yesterday.
To The Bible Joel 3:14
“Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.”
You make decisions everyday…what clothes to wear, the kind of food to eat, where to go, who you want to see, which college to attend, what programme to enroll in, etc. Some of these choices are trivial, others crucial.
Now, when it comes to making crucial decisions, it’s important that you have what it takes to do so. In today’s world, there are patterns people adopt when they want to make decisions. These patterns generally don’t line up with God’s way, so He doesn’t want you following them. The Bible says, “Don’t be like the people of this world, but let God change the way you think. Then you will know how to do everything that is good and pleasing to him” (Romans 12:2 CEV). No matter how attractive the world’s system looks, refuse to let it influence your decisions. It may exert pressure and try to compel you to follow its ways, but you mustn’t give in to it, for you’re not of the world (John 15:19).
Understand that you don’t have to make mistakes or learn from someone’s mistake before you get things right. When you’re led by the Spirit of God, He’ll guide you in the right path and help you make the right decisions every time. You’ll learn to get things right the first time. As you yield to His leading, your Father’s nature will be revealed in your decisions and you’ll always be in sync with His perfect will for your life.
Dear Father, I thank you for being Lord over my life. I yield daily to your leading, trusting in your Word that assures me your thoughts for me are thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give me an expected end. Thank you for your Word that shapes my thoughts and makes my decisions sync with your will for my life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Be attentive to the promptings of the Holy Spirit today.
