I have this new magic eight ball app on my phone. Yep I’m that cool. Well I’m sure you all know how it works, but for those of you who don’t all you do is ask a question, then shake your phone vigorously and out pops an answer. Too bad making a legitimate decision is not that easy. What is it about making a decision that is so difficult? For me I think that it all boils down to fear. I read this passage below recently and wanted to share it with you:
“The opposite of faith is not doubt or even unbelief, but rather, fear. “Whenever we are threatened by forces beyond our control, fear and faith compete for our allegiance.” For this reason, no command is repeated more often in the Bible than the simple command, “Fear not.” We should not be surprised that it is the storms of life that actually prove our faith. “We need to learn to trust in a Savior who does not deliver us from storms but through the storms. Christianity is not a refuge from the uncertainties and insecurities of the world.” Instead, our faith is a refuge in the midst of the uncertainties and insecurities of the world.”
“Indecision is debilitating; it feeds upon itself; it is, one might almost say, habit-forming. Not only that, but it is contagious; it transmits itself to others.”
So I’m going to make a decision today to be bold, step out in faith, use discernment and wisdom as a guide, and make a stinkin decision.
What are you going to do??????
