Decision Making

Decision-MakingHave you ever been in a decision making situation and had absolutely no idea which way to go? I have been in these types of situations so many times in my life, I stopped counting long time ago. The key to making good decisions is to stop and wait. What I mean by that, is sometimes we are simply too close to the situation and our minds go in so many different directions that it becomes impossible to make a good decision.

It’s kind of like running our mouths without stopping to think about what we’re trying to say, in the kindest way of saying it. Sometimes people can be rude or cruel, just by the way they are saying things. They could be completely telling the truth but if they don’t stop to think about what they are going to say or how they are going to say it, it can come across so brutally that people become angry towards your bluntness rather than listening to the truth you are actually saying.

Proverbs 15:1 “A gentle answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger.”

It’s the same thing with decision making. When you have a difficult situation that you really need an answer to, you start thinking about all the “what ifs” of life. If I go this way, this could be the result or if I go that a way, the result could be different. And it’s easy to get caught up in all the “what ifs” to only never make a decision. Or worse, making the wrong decision.

Don’t let your words or your decisions be made with folly or too much thought. Yes, we need to think things through and make good decisions. But the key is to stop and and surrender the situation to God. Whether it’s finding a soul mate, a financial situation, medical decision, making purchases or any other type of decision…the Bible will always have the answer.  If you don’t have a Bible with you at the time, you can simply slow down, get quiet and talk to God. Let Him take charge of the situation and fill you with His peace that surpasses all understanding. When you do this, your decisions will have better results and amazing long-term implications.

God knows the end from the beginning. He knows what path your life is to take and the results He wishes to see in your life. Every decision needs to include Him for the optimum results.

Decision-Making2

Philippians 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

So today…surrender it all. Begin every moment, every thought, every word, and every decision asking God for His wisdom. He will give you the peace and wisdom to a more rewarding life and better decision making. He wants the absolutely best for you in all areas of life. Let Him guide you, for there is nothing too hard or too small for our Heavenly Father. And when God is involved with the decision making process, you can boldly and confidently walk in peace straight ahead, looking forward and never looking back!

Building Your Faith

Feed Your FaithEvery day is a chance to see God work in us and work through us. Whether you need healing in your body, soul, mind, relationships, business, ministry, finances or family; God is with us every step of the way. Throughout the Bible, He has shown us time and time again that nothing is impossible with Him. He is willing and able to heal every area of our lives. We don’t have to wonder when or fear that it will ever happen.

Isaiah 41:10: Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

It is so important to continuously build our faith. By spending time alone with Him every day, reading the Bible to seek His wisdom and knowledge, and making your needs know to Him through prayer along with thanksgiving for His answers should be all part of our daily lives.

When you disconnect from the your daily distractions and spend time alone with God, you’ll find yourself more peaceful and knowing what path to take. God will make sure to guide your footsteps and restore your soul.

The more time you spend with God, the more you begin to know Him. Your life will begin to change and reflect into His image, into His ways, into His amazing truth. Nothing will be missing and nothing will be broken. God is our everything. He will make sure to take care of the massive big problems you face as well as all the teeny tiny ones. Your life will change beyond anything you could have ever imagined and your life will be an incredible testament to God’s love. He was, is, and will always be everything you need.

Every Day Blessings

Waking UpWhen you wake up in the morning, how do you look upon your day?  Are you stressed with all the things you need to accomplish or do you wake up and say THANK YOU LORD, I’m excited about what you have in store for me today?

How ever you see your day begin is the kind of day you will encounter.  If you start your day with thanksgiving, no matter what happens to you, you will be able to easily overcome the pressures and stresses.  But, if you begin your day thinking o’ man, here we go again…it dramatically effects your outcome.

See, when you can look back over the years and see God’s goodness and blessings, you can be positive that they will continue.  You will be able to know that all is well, no matter what you see in the natural. God works in mysterious ways and you never see His blessings coming towards you until they hit you over the head.  That’s His amazing grace upon you.  There is nothing you can do to earn His grace; it is a free gift from Him.  Once you accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior, you received God’s forgiveness of sins, as well as, His free gift of Grace. (Ephesians 2:4-8)Today is a Gift

By your willingness to trust, listen, and surrender to Him; brings the blessings to you unexpectedly.  They are never early and never late.  They always seem to come at the very last minute which takes a lot of faith on your part; knowing that He will provide whatever it is you need, at the very moment you need it.

So, embrace and thank Him for His amazing grace that is bolting towards you.  Thank Him for helping you in those dark moments when you can’t see a way out.  And, thank Him for His blessings that will continue to run you down and over take you.

He is the Alpha and Omega. (Revelation 1:8)  Nothing is too hard or impossible for Him! (Luke 1:37)  For He created you exactly the way you are and knows every strand of hair on your head.  So, be positive and confident in all your ways.  There is no telling what God will bring if you start knowing that every day is a blessing for something amazing to happen!

Giving Thanks

This year has been full of devastation, high crimes, political upheavals, and economic chaos. Many people are reeling from the uncertainly and the unknown.

With all of the terrible situations we’ve seen, whether on the news or experienced within our own lives; I would like to ask everyone to take a moment and find something to be grateful to God for. No matter what you’re experiencing, God is still in control. We may not understand all the “Whys” or “How Comes”, but we can still hold onto the hope that it will turn out for our good. (Romans 8:28)

God has the answers and His ways are far beyond ours. We should all be thankful that He will provide, heal, restore, strengthen, and guide our steps; because His word says so.

Every day is filled with opportunity.  It can be filled with anger and depression or it can be filled with love and laughter.  We all have a choice to make every time we wake up in the morning. Make a commitment today to serve the Lord and continuously be thankful in all things.  He promises not to let you down.
