For in Him we live and move and have our being.

ACTS 17:28

Many years ago I decided that I would never make a major decision unless I knew deep down in my heart that it was the will of the Lord for me.

Before you make a decision – be careful, especially if the offer looks “rosy”. You may be able to get more money, a house, a car and a promotion. If it is not the plan of God, you could be working for a company that is going out of business in just a few months’ time. I have seen it happen over and over again.

Your priority is always to check it out deep down in your heart and not with your flesh. Your flesh always wants to be comfortable and have the easy way out. An excellent question to ask yourself (while placing your hand on your heart) is: “What did God tell me to do and am I doing it?”

When your flesh is the measure you will always land up in trouble – confused and desperate. If it is direction from the Lord the result will be a blessing and much fruit will be evident in your life for all to see.

I have been offered wonderful opportunities that my flesh would do anything to have. It’s not worth it. Keep your life on track with God as you will be amazed where His heart will lead you.

In Him you live, in Him you move – in Him you have your being.
