We make choices and decisions everyday…all the time.
Every time you make a choice, one door opens and another door closes. Our choices can have significant consequences. The reality is that you’re where you are today because of choices and decisions. That’s why we need to depend on the Lord to enable us make the right decisions and the right choices.
The Bible says in Proverbs 3: 5-7 (MSG) “Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all.”
There is a point high in the Rocky mountains in Colorado in the United States, at which the waters of a small stream separate and go in. Two different directions. It does not seem to matter much whether a drop of water goes to the left or to the right. Right? Wrong, because the outcome of those drops of water is totally different.
This is what I mean.
When the streams separate, one drop goes to the West and flows into the Colorado River, empties into the Gulf of California and eventually flows into the Pacific Ocean. Another drop goes East until it flows into the Mississippi River and pours into the Gulf of Mexico and eventually into the Atlantic Ocean.
Two drops of water. Two entirely different destinations, but one small turning point which determines the outcome.
Many choices in life are like that. At the time they don’t seem significant. But those choices set in motion a series of events which shape your life and the lives of those around you!
“Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him, and He will do it.” – Psalm 37:5
