As Christians we need to make decisions that will change our entire life. These decisions are threefold:
- When we decide to give our lives totally to Christ.
- When we decide to be all we can be in life. This is when we refuse to settle for less than we can be.
- When we decide to raise our standards, our values and our expectations in life.
This will be the beginning of an exciting journey towards our destiny, a journey that could take us to many nations around the world. These decisions could enable us to meet people who can help change us and bring new adventure and excitement into our lives.
There is power in making a decision. Everything that happens in our lives, including success or failure, begins with a decision. Our destiny is shaped by our decisions. The decisions we make today will determine our tomorrow’s, the future. For example, what we are today is the result of our past.
We may have decided to go to high school, college or Bible school, or not to. We may have decided to get married, have children, or not to. We may have decided to buy or to build a house, or not to. We may have decided to make a career move, go into business, or not to. We may have decided to get into debt, or not to.
Every decision we make has an outcome. The decisions we make, not our environment, will determine and shape our destiny. There are thousands of testimonies of men and women who have succeeded in life despite their limitations, poor environment and disadvantages. There are those who have become failures in life in spite of all the advantages they had. Our decisions, not our environment, will determine our destiny.
