When we need to make a decision, the first question we should ask ourselves is: “Is my decision in harmony with God’s Word?” We have to decide what is going to be our authority in life. It boils down to this choice: God’s Word or the world.
“Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.” (Psalm 119:105)
If we base our lives on popular opinion, we will always be out of date because it changes every day. What was “good” yesterday will be “bad” today, and what is “good” right now will be “bad” tomorrow. If we base our lives on popular culture or opinion polls, we will struggle because we build on a shifting foundation.
On the other hand, if we base our lives on God’s Word, the truth never changes. Truth is always true. If God says something was wrong ten thousand years ago, it was also wrong five hundred years ago, and it is still wrong today, and it will be wrong one thousand years from now.
It does not matter what the culture says or does or even what is popular at the time. If God says it is wrong, it is wrong. It always has been, and it always will be. If God says it is right, it will always be right. That is a solid foundation that has been shown over time.
God has set up the universe with specific laws, physical, moral, and spiritual. God built the universe around these laws because they are all for our benefit. When we cooperate with the principles in this universe, we succeed. If we reject, disobey, ignore, and rebel against God’s principles, we are the one who gets hurt.
We can be confident in our decisions. If God says it is good, then we do it. If God says no, then we do not do it. It is that simple.
Are you going to base your decisions today on what God says or what other people say?
Do you need Prayer?
“Heavenly Father, when I read Your Word, I will base my life on Your Word alone.
Your Word gives specific instructions on what is right and wrong.
I know blessings in life are from You, and in that decision,
I will have peace. Thank You, Father. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
