Valley of decision-3
Joel 3:14 “Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD [is] near in the valley of decision.”
The key to making quality decisions are the values we have. If our value system is weak, our decisions will be weak. Hear this:
Daniel 1:8 “But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.”
The above scripture shows us a man of value! A man who has made a quality decision not to remain at the valley of life. He separated himself from the crowd at the valley and he rose to the pinnacle of life. Look at it in other translations:
Daniel 1:8 “Daniel made up his mind to eat and drink only what God had approved for his people to eat…” (CEV)
Daniel 1:8 “But Daniel determined that he would not defile himself by eating the king’s food or drinking his wine, so he asked the head of the palace staff to exempt him from the royal diet.” (MSG)
Beloved, what keeps people in the valley is lack of quality decisions. Daniel made up his mind or determined not to defile himself.
What are you going to abstain from? What will you not eat or consume? There is a diet that keeps men at the valley and you must not touch them? Let me show you some:
Galatians 5:19 “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are [these]; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,”
Galatians 5:20 “Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,”
Galatians 5:21 “Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like:”
Those are some of the diets people consume with ease which you must not? How strong is your value system? People consume those things at will but you must know they defile.
You must make up your mind to only eat what our King approves.
To be continued…
