I Week 7: Decisive

As a human being, God gave you an edge over the fouls of the air and fish in the sea, you have the ability to make decisions that are not based solely on survival.

james 1:6-8 tpt

“Just make sure you ask empowered by confident faith without doubting that you will receive. For the ambivalent person believes one minute and doubts the next. Being undecided makes you become like the rough seas driven and tossed by the wind. You’re up one minute and tossed down the next. When you are half-hearted and wavering it leaves you unstable. Can you really expect to receive anything from the Lord when you’re in that condition?”

“These are cute, I have to buy them both! No, I don’t need these, my bookshelf is already overflowing. Maybe I could just buy one, and squeeze it in?”

Well folks, that was a preview of the indecisive spectacle that goes on in my head at times! Unfortunately the mental oscillation isn’t just limited to purchasing books, my self-esteem, God’s Love for me and the answers I select on tests, are all sometimes caught up in my mental game of “Yes! No. Maybe So?” :).

Playing “Yes! No. Maybe So?” puts me center stage, as someone who is supposed to know and be able to understand all the answers. It’s a stressful and energy-intensive cycle that God never intended for my brain to experience.

We all are indecisive and wavery at times, especially when what we see is contrary to what God tells us. Yet we have a choice to remain decided in our hearts and rely on the thing (God) that is more sure than anything our physical senses could ever perceive.

Until Weekend Wellness,
