Ed Young Television Weekly Devotional
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2
There is a line that separates everything we do. It separates the moral from the immoral; the ethical from the unethical; the wise from the unwise. Yet, too many of us walk the edge and the ledge of that line trying to see how close we can get before we have to face the consequences of a bad decision.
God tells us, though, in order to reach our potential; in order to gain the full and rich life that he has in store for us, we can’t walk that line. Instead, we need to get in line with his will and desire for us. And to be in line with God we must make wise, insightful decisions. When we fail to do that, we can end up spending an insane amount of time swimming laps in the pool of regret.
The best way to avoid diving into the pool of regret; the best way to make the right decisions is to ask ourselves an important and purposeful question:
According to God’s Word, and based on my past experiences and looking at my life today, what is the best choice for my future?
When you are purposeful about your decision making process, you will gain the insight needed to transform your life into all that God has in store for you.
Lord, thank you for the plan and the plans you have for me. Help me to make the best choices, and the wisest decisions starting today. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
