“Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.” (Joel 3:14)
Today’s Morsel: Human life was created with the decision-making process. From the creation, we see that Adam and Eve were thrust into decision making from the time scripture says, “And LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” (Genesis 2:15-17) It was a choice of life and death. And when Eve made the decision to listen to Satan versus God, it got them into trouble. The prophet Joel admonishes, “Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.” (Joel 3:14) Your decisions may take you out of God’s will, but never out of God’s reach, as we see with Adam and Eve. Wrong decisions can’t keep God from reaching you and restoring you. The wrong decision just gives Satan the advantage to work against you because you didn’t take time to consider the consequence of your decision. Decisions have consequences and the earlier that we learn that the better our life will be. Especially when we make decisions that go against God’s word.
Sing: He brought me out of the miry clay, He set my feet on the Rock to stay. He put a song in my soul today, a song of praise hallelujah.
Thought For Today: Decisions may take you out of God’s will, but never out of God’s reach.
