Beggars, Princes, & Fairy Tales…

Of Decision In Proverbs 13 verse 4 it is written: “The soul of the sluggard desires and has nothing, but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.” In a land where food was often scarce, it speaks of abundance.

The soul which ends up abundant is the Hebrew word “Charootz.” It means not only diligent but decisive. It can be translated, “..the soul of the decisive shall be made fat.'”

The word of God is making a connection – abundance is linked to decisiveness. If you want abundance in God, you have to be decisive. When it came to your salvation, God wasn’t indecisive, but most decidedly decisive. When it came to dying for you, His love was decisive.

There’s only one way to receive it, and all the blessings He gives… decisively. The Lord says “Choose this day whom you will serve.” When it comes to the love of God, the gospel, His call on your life – be decisive.

Set your heart on that one direction you know you must go. Maybe you’ve never been decisive about anything. It’s a new day. Choose to be decisive and your life will become decisively blessed.

But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:15

What decisions have you held off on making that you have to make? Make those decisions today, be decisive for God.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
