Decision Making is a Faith-Building Activity

 

“But when you pray, you must believe and not doubt at all. Whoever doubts is like a wave in the sea that is driven and blown about by the wind. If you are like that, unable to make up your mind and undecided in all you do, you must not think that you will receive anything from the Lord.” (James 1:6-8 TEV)

 

Nothing is going to happen to your dream until you wake up and put it into action. You have to make the decision: “I'm going to go for it!” For every ten dreamers in the world, there's only one decision-maker. Most people have dreams but they never get to this step— making the decision to trust God and step out in faith. And then they wonder why their dreams are not filled.

 

James says, “But when you pray, you must believe and not doubt at all. Whoever doubts is like a wave in the sea that is driven and blown about by the wind. If you are like that, unable to make up your mind and undecided in all you do, you must not think that you will receive anything from the Lord.” James 1:6-8 (TEV)

 

Faith is a verb. It's active not passive. Faith is not just something you believe, it's something you do. You have to make up your mind and step up your pace.

 

Decision-making is a faith-building activity that requires two things:

 

You must decide to invest your time, money, reputation and energy. You lay it all on the line; you take the plunge. You say, “God, you've told me to do this and I'm going to be faithful to do it!”

 

You have to let go of security. You cannot move forward in faith and hold onto the past at the same time. In other words, if you want to walk on water, you have to get out of the boat.

 

 

What did you hear?

What did God say to you as you read today’s Scripture and devotion? _____________________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________________

 

What do you think?

How does it apply to your life? _____________________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________________

 

What will you do?
Don’t just be a hearer of the Word. Be a doer of the Word.

Now talk to God
This is where you turn your thoughts into prayer. It could be a prayer of gratitude or praise. It could be a prayer of confession or a request for God’s help. It’s up to you. Take a minute to write a prayer of response to what God said to you. _____________________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________________
