‘All who listen to me shall live in peace and safety, unafraid.’ Proverbs 1:33 TLB
Let’s learn to think with the Mind of Christ that in us so that we make Godly or Wise decisions (decisions that line up with the Word of God), that will lead us the good life which God Has for us. We absolutely must, as Faith people make Godly Decisions and trust Him with all our being, otherwise we will never get anywhere (in receiving from God). Your Godly Decisions determine your destiny.
The decisions we make affect other people, whether they will serve God or not (Rom; 5, 17). You can positively affect a lot of people by making the right decisions. The decisions we make affect people in our blood line, so we should try and make Godly decisions even when we are hurting. If you spend time with God, you will make descent decisions, otherwise you will make dump decisions
Think about the major decisions we make over our lifetime: choosing a mate, where to live, what career to pursue, etc. Have you consistently made the wisest choices? As Jennifer Winquist writes, ‘We make choices based on what feels best, what’s easiest…fastest…makes our kids happy…shuts up the boss…stops our problem for the moment…We buy wants instead of saving for necessities. We marry Mr Right-Now instead of waiting for Mr Right. We get a job instead of an education. We eat a bag of [crisps] instead of a bag of carrots…
The way you put physical clothes, that is how you got to dress spiritually – you do that by you making some Godly decisions & asking God to Back them with His Power. We don’t plan to fail but unless we plan to win by making wise choices, we can end up getting the short end of the stick…Wise choices aren’t usually quick fixes, selfish, or short-term; they involve planning, hard work, sacrifice, and resilience. But the rewards are huge.’
Make a decision to live your life before God & do what is right James says, ‘If any of you lacks wisdom…ask…God…and it will be given’ (James 1:5 NKJV). The world spends billions of dollars seeking wisdom, but as God’s Children we have the Wisdom of the Creator of the universe at our disposal. And, when you develop the patience and maturity to make the wise choice instead of the easy one, you can live ‘in peace and safety, unafraid’ of the outcome.
You should make a Wise decision to forgive, as matter of obedience to God. Make a Wise or Godly decision to spend more & time with God; have a deeper, intimate relationship with God, and to walk in The Love of God. Make a Godly decision to take good care of your body (God’s Home). Make a wise decision today to stop comparing yourself with other people.
Do not make decisions outside THE WORD, outside Faith, or outside Love, AMEN
