Topic: Facts On Decision
If you make up your mind on where to go, your mind will be opened to see how to get there. If you know what to do, you will attract the light and understanding to do it (Matthew 6:22).
SCRIPTURE: The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. Matthew 6:22.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: If you make up your mind on what to do, your mind will be opened to how to do it.
Previously, we saw that destiny requires precision. The right decision is a major pathway to destiny fulfilment. The right decision is very critical to destiny.
Now, let me give you three facts on decision:
1 Decision assists discretion.
Decisiveness attracts wisdom. The capacity to decide on time facilitates mentality; it makes you mature mentally. If you make up your mind on what to do, your mind will be opened to how to do it. If you make up your mind on where to go, your mind will be opened to see how to get there. If you know what to do, you will attract the light and understanding to do it (Matthew 6:22). God does not talk to those who are going nowhere.
2 Decision fuels determination.
To be decided is to be determined. It has been said that where there is a will, there must be a way. When you know where you are going, you will be determined to go there. When you know and decide what you are to become, then you will be determined to pursue it. When you have a desire, you will seek to fulfil that desire (Psalm 27:4). If you don’t know what you desire, you will not know what to pursue.
3 Decision determines distinction.
No one earns a first class degree by accident. Earning a first class degree is a product of quality decision. Decision determines distinction.
Beloved, avoid the spell of indecision. Instead of surrendering your destiny to indecision, donate yourself to God. Press yourself into God and He will show you what to do.
Remember this: If you make up your mind on what to do, your mind will be opened to how to do it.
Make the choice for the right decision always.
Always ask God to guide you in making the right decision.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask for the grace to make the right decisions on time, in Jesus’ Name.
