Your Choice And Your Destiny! (4)

Dear Reader,

I welcome you to this last edition of this series of teaching.  I want you to know that it is not just reading alone that guarantees your desired result.  It is your doing and taking practical steps based on what you have read so far, that can guarantee your success.

Today, we shall be concluding this teaching, by looking at what I titled, Instrument of Choice!  Without this very important God-given instrument, you will certainly be overwhelmed by so many issues awaiting your decision, on a daily basis.

THE MIND is this priceless instrument.  The state of your mind determines the quality of your choices, which ultimately determines the quality of your life and destiny.

The truth is that, sharpening your mind appropriately makes it easy for you to make godly choices that will give you peace, joy and rest.  The question then is: How do I get my mind adequately sharpened?

You get your mind sharpened by:

  1. New Birth (I Corinthians 2:16). This is one of the gifts of redemption. It guarantees you access to the mind of Christ.  Jesus Christ never made a wrong choice.  This goes to say, therefore, that if you have His mind, you cannot continue making wrong choices that will mar your destiny.
  2. Mind Renewal (Romans 12:1-2). It is guaranteed that you have the mind of Christ at new birth, but for you to get the results that Christ will get if He were in your situation today, you will have to renew your mind daily with the Word of God.
  3. Study and Meditate on the Word (II Timothy 2:15). God is the only wise God, so when His Word dwells richly in you, you cannot make foolish choices.  As you study and meditate on the Word of God, you are rubbing minds with the mind of God.
  4. Live a Life of Appreciation (Romans 1:21). Stop complaining, and start appreciating God for every ‘little’ act of His in your life.  This is the cheapest way to get baptize with the Spirit of wisdom from God.

What are the Proofs of Right Choices?  They are the presence of peace in your inner man (Psalms 25:12-13), inexplicable joy (Hebrews 12:2), and divine strength to match the task, irrespective of what the outcome of the decision demands (Judges 6:14).  I pray for you that from this day forward, God will release on you His grace, to make right choices in the name of Jesus Christ.  It is done!

Choosing wisely cannot be done in the energy of the flesh.  The privilege is given only to the redeemed.  Becoming redeemed necessitates confessing your sins and accepting Jesus as your Lord and Saviour.  In case you are not yet born again and you would like to, pray this prayer with me: “Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today as a sinner. Forgive me of my sins. I believe You died and rose on the third day for my sins.  I accept You as my Lord and Saviour.  Make me a child of God today. Thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.”

Congratulations, you are now born again! I believe that you will begin to experience the reality of the price that Jesus paid for your sins at Calvary. All-round rest and peace are guaranteed you in Jesus’ Name! Call or write, and share your testimonies with me through contact@faithoyedepo.org; OR 07026385437 and 08141320204.
