YOU ARE ONLY ONE DECISION AWAY

Part 2

Deuteronomy 30:15, 19

 

If you could only make one decision today, what would that be?  Your answer probably reflects your priorities and probably affects all other decisions or derivative from your answer.  The truth is in everything we do in our life, we must ask ourselves is it productive, life or death, curses or blessings, good or bad.

We make 35,000 decisions a day.  Some of those decisions are simple versus complex, or momentarily or take great contemplation versus instant, or you have to wait for moments or a lifetime or eternal.

I don’t want to be like Jonah who chooses Tarshish over Nineveh, Pilot who chooses the crowd over Jesus, Lot’s wife who chooses looking back over looking forward, the rich young ruler who chooses the riches rather than following Jesus, or the crowd who chooses Barabbas versus Jesus.  I want to be like the prodigal who in spite of making wrong decisions I can return and make a right one.

 

            I.  (Hebrews 11:23-27)  Moses teaches us how to make a life, blessings and good decision.

                 A.  Moses’ life is very relateable.

  • Pharaoh
  • Palace
  • Egypt
  • Pleasures
  • Predators
  • Riches
  • Refusing
  • Choosing
  • Esteeming
  • Forsook
  • Endured
  • Kept
  • Suffered
  • Affliction
  • Pleasure of sin
  • Looking forward to the reward
  • Not fearing the wrath of the king
  • Seen him who was invisible

  II.   (Hebrews 11:24, 2 Corinthians 13:5, 2 Corinthians 11:28, Galatians 6:4)   If you are going to make a decision like Moses that’s going to produce life, blessings and good, you are going to have to take an inventory of your life.

  A.  An inventory of your motives, insecurities, ambition, and attitude or you will fall into self-deception, self-denial, or self-exhortation.

                B.  Take an inventory of the people, the places, the plans, and the purposes behind what I’m doing.

                C.  (John 14:26, 16:13)  This kind of decision requires the input of the Holy Spirit.

        III.  (Isaiah 59:15, Matthew 4, Luke 4)  If you are going to make a decision like Moses that produces life, blessings, and good, then they are not always the easiest, funnest or comfortablest.  They are not always attractive, appealing or alluring.

               A.  Because it’s always easier, funnier and comfortabler to sin, be stubborn, retaliate, have revenge and resistance, be uncommitted and unconcerned.

               B.  This kind of decision requires faith in spite of the lack of feeling. No feeling needed, required, or necessary to do right.

        IV. (Hebrews 11:26, 2 Corinthians 4:18, James 4:13-16)   The best decisions, like Moses, are based on how this will affect and effect eternity, the invisible, others and the future.  

               A.  This kind of decision requires guts (grit, courage, boldness, and bravery), not to fear or hesitate no matter what the outcome or result.
