Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 25 August 2020

Decisions In The Valley


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:  With the Corona virus pandemic, just about everyone has to make some major decisions in their lives.  Wear a mask, do not wear a mask.  Open my business or do not open my business.  Open the school doors, or do not open the school doors.  Go to conferences, or do not go to conferences. Get tested or do not get tested?  Travel or do not travel.  Go to work or do not go to work?  Go to church, or do not go to church? Everyone is having to make what seems like serious decisions in their homes and lives.  But Joel said the Day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.  Paul wrote to the church at Philippi, “Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”  (Philippians 4:5-6)  At all times, indeed, the Lord is at hand.  Always know that when you are in the valley of decisions, the One whose name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace, is right there with you.  Just seek Him for the way you should go.


Sing: I have decided to follow Jesus.  I have decided to follow Jesus.  I have decided to follow Jesus, no turning back, no turning back.


Thought For Today:  Seek God for all your directions (Parker)
