Pastor Religion Oyedepo
I thank God for the privilege to convey His Phrase your approach once more right this moment. This month, we’re speaking about Making Proper Selections.
Final week, I buttressed that alternative is an absolute duty of a person to make and everyone seems to be liable for the results of their decisions. We additionally established that each God and the satan respect our decisions, this exhibits how necessary our decisions are. Now to the query, how do I make proper decisions in life? It could be within the space of selecting a profession, a wedding associate or in another space of your life. There’s one necessary issue that may enable you to make a proper alternative in life. What is that this issue? It’s referred to as The Concern of God.
Your alternative can both be proper or fallacious. Whichever one, you could settle for duty for the alternatives that you simply make. If you wish to make proper decisions in life, the very first thing to do is to worry God. The Bible says, What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he train in the way in which that he shall select (Psalm 25:12). The worry of the Lord is the principle yardstick which qualifies you for God’s main as to the making of proper decisions. Information on any related topic helps you make the fitting decisions. Information is a product of knowledge and knowledge is a operate of the worry of the Lord. Scripture says, The worry of the LORD is the start of knowledge: a superb understanding have all they that do his commandments… (Psalm 111:10). In case you worry God, you’ll obey His commandments. That’s the reason God’s Phrase says, Allow us to hear the conclusion of the entire matter: Concern God, and preserve his commandments: for that is the entire responsibility of man (Ecclesiastes 12:13). And you understand that the commandments are revealed in His Phrase.
To the married, what are God’s commandments regarding you? To the spouse, God’s commandment says amongst different issues ‘undergo your husband as it’s match within the Lord’. So, in case you worry God, the alternatives you make as a married lady will probably be revealed in submission to your husband. It doesn’t matter whether or not you earn extra money than he does, submission is God’s commandment.
For the person, in case you worry God, what’s God’s commandment to you? He says, ‘Husbands love your spouse as Christ loves the church’, not if she qualifies on your love. If actually you like your spouse, your love for her will magnetise submission in your course. As a person, how a lot do you obey God’s commandment? Do you select to do no matter you want? The selection is yours.
In case you worry God, additionally, you will love Him. And if you worry God, it’ll present in the way in which you deal with His issues. While you love God, it’ll replicate in all areas of your life. You’ll worship Him along with your substance with out strain. It is possible for you to to make proper decisions based mostly on the rules of Scriptures. In case you worry God, you’ll serve Him. The Bible says, In the event that they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures (Job 36:11). And this additionally contains your marital life. Service is the grasp key to the blessings of God. In case you are not concerned in service, your reward can not come. God’s Phrase says, And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I’ll take illness away from the midst of thee (Exodus 23:25). Due to this fact, serve God wholeheartedly and you’ll start to make proper decisions.
Additionally, the worry of the Lord will enable you flee from sin. Bear in mind the story of Joseph in Genesis 39. Potiphar’s spouse put her eyes on him and wished to put with him and Joseph mentioned, ‘How can I do that evil and sin towards God?’ after which in chapter Four of the identical Genesis, Joseph got here round and mentioned, ‘however I worry God’.
For the singles that aren’t married, the worry of God will enable you preserve sexual constancy. When a person says to you, ‘Come and commit fornication with me’, the worry of God will make you inform your self and inform him to his face, ‘however I worry God’. And in case you’re in courtship, don’t ever overlook that courtship is just not the identical factor as marriage. If you end up in courtship, refuse to dump to the satan. The Bible says, Marriage is honourable in all, and the mattress undefiled: however whoremongers and adulterers God will decide (Hebrews 13:4). Due to this fact, preserve the wedding mattress secure. A person says he desires to marry you and all he’s serious about about you, is to take you to mattress to mess up your life, beware! The worry of God is just not in his life.
In case you could have made errors up to now, don’t reside with a way of condemnation. No! The previous is previous. Cease trying backwards, in case your goal is to go ahead. The blood of Jesus will avail for you and your previous won’t ever be utilized by God to guage your future.
The worry of the Lord begins with a private relationship with Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. In case you are not born once more and also you need to accomplish that, say this prayer in religion: Pricey Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You right this moment. I’m a sinner. Forgive me my sins and cleanse me with Your Blood. I settle for You as my Lord and private Saviour. Make me a baby of God right this moment. Thank You for delivering me from sin and devil to serve the residing God and thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.
Congratulations! In case you prayed this easy prayer of religion with me, you are actually born once more and a baby of God. He loves you and can by no means go away you.
