What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

 

“Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision” (Joel 3:14). This week Dr. John Mills of H.E.L.P. addressed for us the importance of making wise decisions. The negative side is established by Joshua's league with the Gibeonites. He was uneasiness about the decision and the Bible states, “And the men took of their victuals, and asked not counsel at the mouth of the LORD” (Josh 9:14). Like in this decision consequences can go on for generations. Adam blamed his wife, Flip Wilson the Devil, psychologists the parents. Take responsibility. “I'm sorry” does not erase consequences so practice these three principles for decision making. After making the greatest decision of life, receiving the Lord Jesus Christ as the savior of your soul, one has all new aptitude for them. First labor to please God every day of your life. We daily battle the world, the flesh, and the devil and to “in all thy ways acknowledge him” (Prov 3:5-6) is going to take determination, dedication, and discipline. Our desires ought to always please our Lord. Second habitually feed abundantly on the Word of God. Devotionals are wonderful tools, but they do not divide the thoughts and intents of our heart. Pick up your King James Bible and dedicate yourself to much reading, much study, and much meditation (Psalm 1, 119:97,104, Josh 1:8). It equips us for making wise decisions. Lastly practice the inverse of Joshua 9:14. James 1:5 says, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally.” Remember Psalm 27:14, “Wait on the LORD” and wait for a clear indication from the Lord; we often press on leaning on our own understanding, the inverse of Proverbs 3:5-6. Joshua failed in his chapter 9; it was recorded so that we need not fail.
