    Topic: Four Decisions That Determine Your Destiny


    BY RICK WARREN — SEPTEMBER 15, 2017

    “If you are . . . unable to make up your mind and undecided in all you do, you must not think that you will receive anything from the Lord” (James 1:7-8 GNT).

    Daily Hope with Rick Warren

    In Dr. Seuss’ poem “The Zode in the Road,” a young Zode comes to a fork in the road and spends quite some time trying to decide which direction to go. He thinks about the possibility that one place may be too hot and the other too cool or one too high and the other too low. After scratching his head in indecision, the Zode finally decides to play it safe and “start out for both places at once!”

    And that meant the Zode got nowhere.

    What decision do you need to make? I urge you to do something great with your life for Jesus’ sake. Don’t be a Zode. Don’t waste your life. Don’t live in mediocrity. Don’t just exist! Make the decisions that will determine your destiny.

    There are four life-changing decisions that every person has to make:

    1. To commit your life to Christ and become a part of his family. If you haven’t done that, what are you waiting on? Not to decide is to decide.

    2. To commit to the habits that will help you grow spiritually. Don’t be a wishy-washy, lukewarm, shallow Christian. Go head-on. Be all that God wants you to be.

    3. To use your talents, gifts, abilities, and experiences to serve God and others. If you’ve been sitting on the bench, it’s time to get in the game.

    4. To share Jesus Christ with others. Once you know the Good News, you’re to become a messenger so that others may hear it, too.

    “If you are . . . unable to make up your mind and undecided in all you do, you must not think that you will receive anything from the Lord” (James 1:7-8 GNT).

    The decision is yours!

    Talk It Over

    • Why do you think God lets us make decisions about our destiny?
    • How has indecision or procrastination kept you from doing something great for God?
    • What decision is God asking you to make today? How will you respond?
    • If you don’t have that relationship with Christ, would you pray this prayer?


    Say, “Dear Jesus Christ, I don’t understand it all, but there’s a hole in my heart that I realize only you can fill. I realize that I was made to be loved by you and to have a relationship with you. I ask that you forgive me of my sins. Today I want to step across the line and accept you as my Lord and Savior. I ask you to come into my life and my heart and replace my loneliness and my hurt with your love. I want to become a part of your family, the Church.”

    Daily Hope with Rick Warren

    If you prayed that prayer, God heard you, and you’ve taken the first step in the Christian life.
