DECISION – THE FUEL OF DETERMINATION
By DIGC30 January 2021
Beloved, when you are decided, then you can be determined.
SCRIPTURE: One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in his temple. Psalm 27:4
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: If you have not decided, you cannot be determined.
Sometime ago, our father in the Lord, Bishop David Oyedepo, passed through the Lord’s Garden construction site when the construction of the Glory Dome was still on-going. He saw the rapid rate at which the construction was growing and was very happy. Then he said, “Wow! Great things are happening here; praise God. But ensure that you don’t borrow one naira for this project before it finishes.”
Then I said to him, “That is impossible! Not even in the dream. I did not see borrowing in your life or in Scripture, so it cannot be a temptation.”
This means, I made up my mind never to borrow on behalf of God; if God cannot build it, let it remain unbuilt.
Beloved, when you are decided, then you can be determined. Even when we have not yet reached this level in Ministry, we made up our mind never to borrow. When it was time to build the five-floor office complex of the Dunamis Int’l Gospel Centre at Area 1, Garki, Abuja, we needed only Ten Million Naira to complete it. Then, a commercial bank approached us and told us that they would provide the needed fund to complete the building for us. Their condition was that, after every service, they would gather the offering and take it to the bank and count it there. What a reproach to the Name of God! Expectedly, we refused their offer.
David made up his mind to desire and seek after one thing and he pursued it (Psalm 27:4). If you don’t know what you desire, you would not know what to pursue; if you have not decided, you cannot be determined.
Remember this: If you have not decided, you cannot be determined.
- Make up your mind to pursue God like David did.
- Determine to obey God’s Word.
PRAYER: O Lord, I receive the grace and the determination to serve You. Help me to have a strong decision power, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
