Scripture Reading

“You will decide on a matter, and it will be established for you, and light will shine on your ways.”

Job 22:28 (NRSVUE)

Introductory Remarks: 

God has given us the power to decide if we will accept the good desires of our heart, or if we will reject the good desires of our heart. Through prayerful listening, make a decision again and again for what you believe is God’s desire for you. ‘Stick to’ your decision in thought, word, and deed. 

“…God within you has ways of bringing about that which you decide you want. But you must make the decision of exactly what it is you want.” Rev. Ike

Major Points of the Lesson:

1. There is power in your ability to decide. Every decision you make either moves you closer to your desire or away from your desire. 

   a. Each decision affects what you become. 

   b. Your smallest decisions are important because – over time – their cumulative effect is HUGE.

   c. Your decisions are like seeds that determine your harvest. Good decisions = Good harvest.

   d. Your decision fuels the subconscious mind causing it to fulfill the order that you give to it. 

2. Indecision confuses and stalls the process of fulfillment. Without direction, the subconscious mind wanders in different directions, accomplishing nothing. “Indecision is the big eraser of opportunity and potential.’  Gary Ryan Blair’s, Goals: The 10 Rules for Achieving Success.

3. Decisions aren’t made one time. They are made again and again and as often as necessary. “A decision to lose weight and keep it off must be remade every time you feel hungry.” Gary Ryan Blair


“Risks and costs accompany every decision; however, the price of decision is far less than the long range risks and costs of comfortable inaction.”   

Gary Ryan Blair
