Choices; a six letter word that is so profound. Life is a business, your productivity depends on the choice you make.
Choosing between what’s right and wrong can be difficult sometimes because we want to satisfy ourselves.
Some of our decisions are determinant of our situation. Sometimes the position we find ourselves influence the decision we make.
I haven’t been a good decision maker over the years. I have been influenced by so many things, some out of my own will.
I couldn’t say no to certain things, what I never should have associated myself with, but I do not have regrets.
I see my experience as a lesson which I have learned and others are supposed to learn from so they won’t be victims.
From relationship down to outfits, I suck at it . over the years, I have made wrong relationships move . Guys I shouldn’t have dated were my obsession.
Most times when I talk to young ones going the same path as I did, they don’t see reasons with me. I just pray they come out of it.
Some are so adamant to advise, they would think you hate them or are judging them. Well, I was like that. I thank God for the spirit of truth I have received that keeps opening my eyes to so many things.
It wasn’t until last year I got a better understanding of relationships and the kind of man I wanted in my life.
It took me lots of learning, listening to podcast, reading books and now I’m fully aware of what I want.
I’m no longer the girl that falls for any guy.
When it comes to my outfit, I always asked for 2nd to a 3rd opinion about how I look. There was a time in my life, if someone was to make a not so good remark about my outfit, I would be so sad.
That would eventually spoil my day, it’s either I change into something else or I end up not leaving the house because I couldn’t figure out what to wear. After ransacking my closet, I just gave up.
I have upgraded to a certain stage where I can now make decisions on my own but it took steps getting here.
Receive the right knowledge
The knowledge received affects our decision making , what are you learning ?
We must learn the right things so we do not make the wrong decisions for ourselves. it’s one thing to make a decision, it’s another to stand by it.
We base our decision on what we have learned, this way we are able to ponder on what we should do. We should learn the right things so our decision would be based on the right not wrong.
Make the right choices
Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live
One thing God gave to us as humans is will. Our free will to do what we want but he wishes we choose rightly.
From the above scripture, it shows that there are a blessing and a curse that comes with the decision you make.
God wants us to choose life because there’s a blessing. He doesn’t want us to choose the other way because it attracts a curse. How do we know what is life and death and how can it affect our decision?
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
to make the right decision which blessings would be the reward then it has to be aligned with God’s word.
Its never too late to turn back through and make the right choices. I’m at a certain point in my life where I know I have to get this right. I just have to.
One thing I have realized is that God does not force his will on us. it’s like you being employed for a job, you’ve been given the right tools and a promising salary ( very fat). Now it’s left for you to do the job if you don’t you get sacked.
God won’t force you to choose life, he won’t force you to do the job. It’s left for you to decide on what you want.
Sometimes we want someone or a force to just push us into things but it doesn’t work that way.
You must consciously walk and produce result .
There’s this popular word people use most times .
Every decision has its own consequences, right or wrong you will live to face the consequence so do what’s best for you
This is a lie, there’s a choice that’s right and the end is a blessing but the wrong choice the end is a curse.
Draw nearer to God
We must learn to put your trust in God, for he knows what’s best for us. I came across a scripture which says ” make your plans and I will direct your actions ”
This is really powerful. It means when I don’t know how to go about things, God will direct my actions.
I won’t choose the wrong things because God said he would direct my actions. wow isn’t that wonderful?
God will never direct you into doing the wrong things so be careful of the voice you listen to, he’s direction is in his word.
God is the first person we should all learn to talk to before we make certain decisions .
Heed to wise counsel
There are certain people around us that we can talk to about our situation and they can provide the right answer to it.
If you have talked to God I believe he would give you directions. So when people also talk to you, you would know if it’s in line with God’s word or not so you won’t fall for anything.
I pray we all make the right decisions in our life and consciously walk in the way of the lord.
