Decisions Influence Destiny

The decisions you make today will affect your destiny tomorrow. 
Although decisions about what to wear to work each morning may not be important, many decisions can have a ripple effect in your life. For example, what you choose to eat for breakfast may seem unimportant, but the food you eat affects your body, your energy level, and your overall health. And some decisions are a matter of life and death.

But how do you know the right decision for every situation?
Good question! 
The secret to making the right decision every time is to have the wisdom of God. 
How do you obtain that? By asking for it.

During the next month, meditate on the following scriptures about wisdom.
Read them over and over. 
Pray them out loud over yourself. 
Memorize them. 
Ask the Holy Spirit for spiritual understanding regarding each verse. 
Then, as individual situations arise in which you must make a decision, rely on these verses and on the wisdom of God in order to choose wisely.
Psalm 16:7 Psalm 32:8 Psalm 51:6
Proverbs 2:5–7 Ephesians 1:17–23 James 1:5
1 John 2:20,27 1 John 5:20

The devil has destined us for pain and sorrow . . . .
But we can change our destiny through faith in God.
