Empowerment – Do Not Be a Wimp in the Valley of Decision Making!
Discover How the Power of Decisiveness and Quality Choices Can Lead to Success!
We all have our strengths and weaknesses.
At some point in life…
a lack of success and/or balance
will shed light on those areas that need to be better
developed and strengthened.
Are You a Decision Making Wimp?
A primary trait that we all should develop as soon as possible is the ability to make quality decisions. Every person is born with a God-given capacity and right to choose. The ability to choose is our free moral agency, and it is also one of the main ways in which we are made in the image of God.
We are born into a world where everything operates by decisions.
“Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.”
— Joel 3:14
God respects our right to choose and make decisions, even if it results in a bad outcome. Truly we live in the valley of decision and we see man’s right to choose as a theme repeated throughout the Bible. Different aspects of the power of choice are emphasized from Genesis to Revelation.
“I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing, therefore choose life, that both you and your seed may live.”
— Deuteronomy 30:19
Let the Almighty God ‘Have Your Back’
Choosing to live by faith in God is the most important quality decision you can make in life. When you make a determined decision to trust God and His Word over any circumstance, you open the door to receive His promises.
The Almighty God is ready and willing to back you up with all of heaven’s power. He will move mighty on behalf of someone who has purposed to do things by the Book. You make the decision and God will back you up!
It is no secret; those who are half-hearted and wishy-washy about their decision making, never reach the level of success they desire. Why? Because the people that are double minded, and waver in their choices, are unstable and lack the commitment and resolve needed to win.
“Ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavers is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”
— James 1:6-8
Many people are wise enough to make a quality decision to do things God’s way early on in life. However, for others it may take finally getting fed up with where they are at…
If that is you, are you going to continue to live with problems that are trying to defeat you, or are you going to make a determined, unwavering decision to overcome by doing things God’s way?
Start to practice making conscious choices to do things God’s way in the little things, and over time it will become a habit and easier to choose His way in the big things.
Guess what? All of heaven is waiting for your quality decision, made of your own free will, to operate according to God’s Word. It is an essential step in the divine order of faith and opens the door to the blessings and power of God. Begin now to empower yourself by making regular, intentional, committed decisions.
May you empower yourself with decisiveness and live in growing prosperity!
Be blessed to be a blessing –
P.S. Christianity is really nothing more than a series of decisions…
Think about it. Jesus died on the cross so that you might have forgiveness of sins and inherit eternal life. But that fact alone does you no good unless you make a decision to receive what He provided for you. God respects your right to choose (even if that means letting you spend eternity in hell).
Please CHOOSE LIFE! 🙂
A Majestic God – Psalm 8 Christian Meditation Video
A great video reminder by bluefishtv of how majestic our Lord is!
“O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth!
who have set your glory above the heavens.
Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings have you ordained strength
because of your enemies, that you might still the enemy and the avenger.
When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars, which you have ordained;
What is man, that you are mindful of him?
and the son of man that you visit him?
For you have made him a little lower than the angels,
and have crowned him with glory and honor.
You made him to have domininion over the works of your hands;
you have put all things under his feet:
All sheep and oxen, yes, and the beasts of the field;
The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever
passes through the paths of the seas.
O LORD our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth!”
— Psalm 8
God bless you,
I Will Cry Unto GOD Most High – Psalm 57
“I will cry unto God most high:
unto God that performs all things for me.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
let your glory be above all the earth.
My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed:
I will sing and give You praise.
I will praise You, O Lord, among the people:
I will sing unto You among the nations.
For your mercy is great unto the heavens,
and your truth unto the clouds.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens:
let your glory be above all the earth.”
— Psalm 57:2,5,7,9-11
