Job 22:28 AMPC

“You shall also decide and decree a thing, and it shall be established for you; and the light [of God’s favor] shall shine upon your ways.”

2 Chronicles 36:22-23 TLB

“But in the first year of King Cyrus of Persia, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus to make this proclamation throughout his kingdom, putting it into writing:

“All the kingdoms of the earth have been given to me by the Lord God of heaven, and he has instructed me to build him a Temple in Jerusalem, in the land of Judah. All among you who are the Lord’s people return to Israel for this task, and the Lord be with you.”

Romans 8:14-17 AMPC

14 “For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.

15 For [the Spirit which] you have now received [is] not a spirit of slavery to put you once more in bondage to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption [the Spirit producing sonship] in [the bliss of] which we cry, Abba (Father)! Father!

16 The Spirit Himself [thus] testifies together with our own spirit, [assuring us] that we are children of God.

17 And if we are [His] children, then we are [His] heirs also: heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ [sharing His inheritance with Him]; only we must share His suffering if we are to share His glory.”

Galatians 3:26:29 NLT

26 “For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

27 And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have put on Christ, like putting on new clothes.

28 There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus.

29 And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true children of Abraham. You are his heirs, and God’s promise to Abraham belongs to you.”

Job 22:28 AMPC

“You shall also decide and decree a thing. . .”

First, the decision is yours.

Job 22:28 TLB

You will decide on a matter, and it will be established for you, and light will shine on your ways.”

Romans 14:12 AMPC

“So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.”

Somebody once said:

“Change your life today. Don't gamble on the future, act now, without delay.”

Leo Tolstoy, the author once said:

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”

Proverbs 2:9 TLB

“He shows how to distinguish right from wrong, how to find the right decision every time.”

Proverbs 2:1 TLB

“Every young man who listens to me and obeys my instructions will be given wisdom and good sense.”

Second, you decide whom you will serve.

1 Corinthians 2:2 TLB

“For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.“

Galatians 1:10 AMPC

“Am I now trying to win the favor and approval of men, or of God? Or am I seeking to please someone? If I were still trying to be popular with men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ.”

1 Thessalonians 2:4 AMPC

“But just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel [that tells the good news of salvation through faith in Christ], so we speak, not as [if we were trying] to please people [to gain power and popularity], but to please God who examines our hearts [expecting our best].”

Sir Winston Churchill once said:

“You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something in your life.”

Third, we decide whether to follow God’s instructions in His Word.

Deuteronomy 26:17 AMPC

“You have [openly] declared the Lord this day to be your God, [pledging] to walk in His ways, to keep His statutes and His commandments and His precepts, and to hearken to His voice.”

1 John 2:3-4 AMPC

And this is how we know [daily, by experience] that we have come to know Him [to understand Him and be more deeply acquainted with Him]: if we habitually keep [focused on His precepts and obey] His commandments (teachings). 4 Whoever says, “I have come to know Him,” but does not habitually keep [focused on His precepts and obey] His commandments (teachings), is a liar, and the truth [of the divine word] is not in him.”

Fourth, when you take action on your decisions…your environment begins to change.

Proverbs 5:21 GWT

“Each person’s ways are clearly seen by the Lord, and he surveys all his actions.”

James 2:17 AMPC

“So also faith, if it does not have works (deeds and actions of obedience to back it up), by itself is destitute of power (inoperative, dead).”

James 2:17 MSG

“Isn't it obvious that God-talk without God-acts is outrageous nonsense?”

Fifth, the decisions you make or fail to make…create change…whether desirable or not.

Deuteronomy 30:15 TLB

“Look, today I have set before you life and death, depending on whether you obey or disobey.”

Sixth, when you make a decision…God wants you to keep your word.

Deuteronomy 6:6 NCV

“Always remember these commands I give you today.”

Psalm 50:14 CEV

“I am God Most High! The only sacrifice I want is for you to be thankful and to keep your word.”

Numbers 32:23 NLT

“But if you fail to keep your word, then you will have sinned against the Lord, and you may be sure that your sin will find you out.”

Numbers 30:2 CEV

“When one of you men makes a promise to the LORD, you must keep your word.”

Seventh, your decisions decide how you will invest your time.

Psalm 90:12 CEV

“Teach us to use wisely all the time we have.”

Colossians 4:5 KJV

“Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.”

Colossians 4:5 AMPC

“Conduct yourself with wisdom in your interactions with outsiders (non-believers), make the most of each opportunity [treating it as something precious].”

Roy E. Disney, Walt Disney’s brother and partner in business, shared this profound thought:

“When your values are clear to you, making decisions becomes easier.”

Job 22:28 TLB

“You will decide on a matter, and it will be established for you, and light will shine on your ways.”

Peter F. Drucker, the business and management guru, said:

“Whenever you see a successful business, someone once made a courageous decision.”

Ezra 10:4 GWT

“Get up! It’s your duty to take action. We are with you, so be strong and take action.”

Psalm 2:7 AMPC

“I will declare the decree of the Lord: He said to Me, You are My Son; this day [I declare] I have begotten You.”

Job 22:28 MSG

“You’ll pray to him and he’ll listen; he’ll help you do what you’ve promised. You’ll decide what you want and it will happen.”
