HILLS AND VALLEYS – THE VALLEY OF DECISIONS GRASSHOPPERS, GRAPES AND GIANTS
At some point, we all find ourselves having to face some extremely tough decisions in life—even some really small decisions that may seem meaningless to you but will play a role in determining your future. If you find yourself in the valley of decisions, fear not, there are many ways to navigate this!
Life is the sum total of all of our decisions. You are who you are based on the decisions you make in the life that you’ve been handed. You are not what you’ve been given rather, you are how you use w hat you’ve been given. Focus on the big picture; not every open door is from God and not every closed door is from the enemy. The Bible says to KNOCK, and it will be opened. If you have to knock on a door for Him to open, it’s must already be closed to begin with. Know
your values; how you see yourself is how others will see you. Recognize the snowball effect; one bad decision will lead to many other bad decisions. On the contrary, one good decision will lead to many other good decisions! We have to create an atmosphere where the Holy Spirit is openly welcome and He will be able to guide us through life’s difficult decisions. We must take immediate action; if you need to make a decision today, make it today! Don’t sit on it! If you’re following all of these steps and letting the Holy Spirit guide you, the decision should be loud and clear! Take heart in knowing that a right decision will lead you to positivity, but acknowledging a wrong decision and getting back in tune with Him will lead you right back to a clean slate!
