Some folks take freedom for granted, because they don’t know what it means to be free,if you have ever been incarcerated ,you have a taste of the lack of freedom . The decisions you make,may lead you to make wrong choices, that can and will be detrimental to our life and well being.
+All decisions are important.
+Every decision we make affects or highly impacts our lives in some way or another.
+When it comes to our personal lives some things should NOT BE, but yet THEY ARE.
+When it comes to our decision making who makes our decisions?
+Does God Make our decisions?
+Does the enemy (satan, devil) makes our decisions?
+Or do we make all decisions for ourselves?
5 TRUST in the LORD with ALL YOUR HEART; and LEAN NOT INTO YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING.
6 IN ALL YOUR WAYS acknowledge him, and HE SHALL DIRECT YOUR PATHS.
7 Be NOT WISE in YOUR OWN EYES…
+Remember In all our ways we acknowledged the Lord and He directs our paths.
+Yes! God directs, but we make the decision to go in the directions He is leading us.
+Some of us do not make the decision to go in God’s Directions, and when things go wrong we blame God.
+In Genesis 2:16-17, and in Chapter 3, Adam made the wrong decision. He went in his own direction in the Garden of Eden.
+Then Adam blamed God and the Eve for what he did.
+Remember this, every ungodly, unrighteous or wrong decision will eventually lead to the point of sin and possible death in some way or another.
+Let us make decisions that promote Life, Love, Truth, Righteousness, Holiness and Faith for the Glory of God. Amen!
+Our decisions are influenced by our upbringing, life experiences and also by our character.
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
+Our training and upbringing influences our decision making.
+We are still be trained and brought up in the things of God with the Word of God and by the Holy Spirit.
+Allow the Holy Spirit to influence your decision making.
Either make the tree good, and its fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and its fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by its fruit.
+In other words the fruit we bear reveals our character, and our character influences our decisions.
+Let the fruit we bare be the Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23), and the Fruits of Righteousness (James 3:18).
1 Kings 18:21says,
And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long do you halt (or hesitate) between two opinions? if the LORD is God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
+Never you get stuck between two decisions. Our God is a clear and decisive God. He will lead us and guide us through all decisions.
+Remember James 1:8 A double-minded man is UNSTABLE in ALL HIS WAYS.
+Double minded also means:
-to be back and forth with the same thing.
-One moment the answer is YES and the next moment the answer is NO.
-One moment we in FAITH and the next moment we are in DOUBT.
+Let us make sure we are not double minded but DECISIVE when it comes to the things of God and decision making in our lives.
+It’s your choice (decision) to choose your words carefully.
36 But I say unto you, that every IDLE WORD that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.
37 For by your WORDS you shall be JUSTIFIED, and by your WORDS you shall be CONDEMNED.
+IDLE WORDS are USELESS WORDS. These are words that do not promote Love, Truth, Holiness, Righteousness and Faith.
+Choose with Godly Wisdom WHAT to speak, HOW to speak it, WHEN to speak it, and WHERE to speak it.
Let the WORDS OF OUR MOUTHS, and the MEDITATIONS OF MY HEARTS, be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my Strength, and Our Redeemer.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
Acts 3:19-20 tells us to:
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,  and that he may send the Messiah, who has been appointed for you—even Jesus.
Loving Lord Jesus, You have loved me even though I have not loved You. I admit that I am a sinner and I know that there is no other way to have my many sins forgiven except through Your blood, that was shed at Calvary – for sinners such as me.
I believe that You died for me and that You took all the punishment for my sins that I justly deserve. Lord I repent of all my sins and pray that You would forgive me all my trespasses.
Please come into my life – I receive You as my Saviour for You promised that as many as receive You – You will give the right to become sons of God.. even to those who believe on Your name. Lord I believe and want to follow You as My Lord and Saviour, from this day forward.. In Jesus Mighty Name. Thank You for hearing my prayer. Amen
