Where and who we are today is a result of the decision we make yesterday. Nothing jumps on us by luck; it has to be our deliberate decision for anything to be permitted by us.
Life might not give us what we want, only if we are not deliberate about creating the future we desire through the right decision.
There are some decisions we make that will make or mar our destiny. No matter how little that action might be, it will always tell in one way or the other. Because to every action there is a reaction.
I will like to share some fundamental decisions we must never joke with if we want to have a fulfilled life.
To be Born Again
You don’t see a dead person make the most of life. No dead person has a future. And until you are saved you are not counted among the living.
He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.1John 5:12 KJV
Until we are redeemed through Christ, we can’t access our primary purpose on earth. Why? Because you are dead in the spirit, and God only relate with our spirit being.
Be committed Kingdom Stewards
Nothing invested in the kingdom is a waste. Whatever we do towards the kingdom will return to us in one way or another. Our decision towards moving the work of Christ forward through our time, energy and resources will yield a great reward for us
And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.Exodus 23:25 KJV
Until you are committed to the things of God, He will never be committed to your things. You don’t get profit from a business you never invested in, so this applies to the kingdom.
Make the Bible your most important Book
If you want to make the most of any product, a total understanding of it manual is very mandatory. The Bible, which contains the word of God is Gods’ manual for our life.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.2 Timothy 3:16 KJV
Until you know what is in for you through the Bible, you cannot make the most of your life. Don’t live to survive but to make an impact.
Marriage can either take you to hell or heaven, it can make you rich or ruin, it can make you happy or sad, it can prolong your life or shorten it. Please, don’t get me wrong; marriage is ordained to be a good thing for us. But marrying the wrong person will alter the divine purpose of marriage.
Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; fbut fornicators and adulterers God will judgeHebrews 13:4 NKJV
There are a lot of young folks getting married or going into a relationship too early just because they feel their pleasure is satisfied. But in the end, they start regretting because they get to know the true personality of their partner, then break up or divorce sets in.
Until you are convinced someone is right for you, don’t engage in relationship with such individual. Just as a fruit does not germinate immediately when sown, the fruit of a relationship or marriage is never feasible at the beginning; it also takes
Choose the Right Friends
Whether you like it or not, no man can be an island. Your connection determines your collection. I don’t make friends easily, but I still have who I can call my friend.
It is better to have just one person you are sure is the right friend than flocking with a bunch of people that are going nowhere.
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.Psalms 1:1 KJV
Like the saying; show me your friends, and I will show you who you are. I will also say show me your friends, and I will show you how you will end.
For example, keeping friends with smokers, drunkards or womanizers will make you end up having a short life, die of poverty, and lose focus respectively. The friend you make and keep will determine what you become in life.
Choose the Right Location
Your location determines your allocation. Not every place is suitable for the actualization of your destiny. Making the right decision on the place you live and work is very vital for your progress in life.
I hated to stay in Lagos because of its rowdiness, too many thugs and transportation challenges (unavoidable traffic, high cost of fare and accident). I already planned my relocation to another State after I graduated from the University. But I wasn’t given a go-ahead by my spirit, so I had to obey and stayed in which I am not regretting now.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.Proverbs 3:6 KJV
Until you locate your rightful place, you will remain displaced. You will only be surviving instead of making an impact. Location is synonymous with provision. When you are in the wrong location, you will lack the provision to make an impact for your life. But dwelling in the right location will attract provision to make the most for your life.
Conclusion: Taking the right decision is a great responsibility of everyone. Until you take responsibility, you remain a liability. Life is sweet, but it takes a deliberate rightful decision to taste the sweetness of life. When others are groaning, you keep growing because you have created the future you desire through your decision. Let us meditate on these decisions listed, and we shall all end up having a fulfilled and glorious destiny this year
Jesus is Lord!
