If anyone’s will is to do God’s will, he will know whether the teaching is from God or whether I am speaking on my own authority.

—John 7:17

We live in a multiple-choice society. There so many options when it comes to everything from entertainment to food that the average person can be overwhelmed with a barrage of decisions to make.

Of course, some decisions such as which color shirt to wear on a given day or what to put on your hamburger aren’t really that important in the larger scheme of things. But there are other choices we are called upon to make that can be life-shaping and life-changing: the choice to be true to our mates, or the decision to be honest in business, for example.

Making the right choices is vital to our Christian walk. Some people, such as Adam and Eve, make poor choices.  And in their case the human race will always be paying for their poor choice. Still others, such as Moses and Daniel, made good choices that proved them to be people of great faith.

Making the right choice is important because our lives are shaped by decisions. We first make our decisions, but then our decisions turn around and make us. We are free to choose our actions, but not free to choose the consequences of those actions.

The person you are right now is the sum of all of the decisions that you’ve made in the past. And Jesus said if you want to know and do God’s will, He will reveal the truth to you. So if you are facing a tough decision today, go to God’s Word and ask Him to give you the guidance you need…and He will!

Making the right choice is vital because whatever decision you make will turn around and make you!
