Topic: The Right Decision – A Key To Destiny Fulfilment
Beloved, destiny requires precision. The right decision is the pathway to destiny fulfilment.
SCRIPTURE: And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God: Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to me, and more also, if ought but death part thee and me. When she saw that she was stedfastly minded to go with her, then she left speaking unto her. Ruth 1:16 -18.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Destiny requires precision. The right decision is the pathway to destiny fulfilment.
In the Book of Ruth Chapter One, the Bible gives us the account of a man of Bethlehem called Elimelech who had a wife called Naomi. Together, they had two sons, Mahlon and Chilion. They all went and sojourned in the land of Moab because of famine in Israel. In the course of time, Elimelech died and his two sons, Mahlon and Chilion married two Moabite women, Ruth and Orpah. Mahlon and Chilion also died leaving Naomi in deeper sorrow and misery. Then Naomi arose to go to the land of Israel when she heard that the Lord had blessed His people, the Israelites with bread. Her two daughters-in-law, Ruth and Orpah, followed her but she told them to go back. After much persuasion, Orpah eventually went back but Ruth decided to cleave unto Naomi, her mother-in-law.
In Scriptures, we hear of Ruth afterwards, even to the New Testament in the genealogy of Jesus Christ, but after the Book of Ruth Chapter One, Orpah’s name was not mentioned again in the Bible. Her name disappeared henceforth throughout the Bible. This happened because she was undecided and then made a wrong decision. Orpah went into oblivion while Ruth became outstanding in life by the power of the right and positive decision.
Most times, indecision would always lead to wrong decisions. Those who find it hard to make up their mind usually make the wrong decision eventually. I have seen people who married the wrong persons because of uncertainty or indecision. They could not make up their mind on time on who to marry. Their indecision led them into over analysis such as: “This one is too tall; that one is too short, this one is too black; that one is too fair in complexion,” then eventually, they marry the one that has the combination of all the negative qualities, and that is a disaster.
Beloved, destiny requires precision. The right decision is the pathway to destiny fulfilment. Make up your mind to make the right decisions in life.
Remember this: Destiny requires precision. The right decision is the pathway to destiny fulfilment.
Ask God for the grace to make the right decision always.
Refuse to be undecided on the issues of life. Be decisive. Make up your mind on time.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the grace to make the right decision always. Deliver me from the spell of indecision and wrong decision, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

AMAZING FACT: Lions have wonderful night vision. They are six times more sensitive to light than humans are. This gives them a distinct advantage over some preys when hunting at night. A reflective coating on the back of their eyes helps to capture moonlight.
