THEME: THE WORD V

MEMORISE: Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Psalms 119:105

READ: Psalms 119:103 -105

103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

104 Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

MESSAGE

And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
Isaiah 30:21

The word of God is the perfect guide that everyone needs in life. When we reach a point where we need to make a decision that will significantly affect our lives, the word of God gives us the leverage to make the best choices. Whenever you need to make a decision and you place your options beside the word of God, it will shed light on the dark areas, help you to see and understand those options more clearly and then guide you on which is best. Sometimes, the best decision is arrived at from multiple Scriptures which guide you in the process of decision making. Some of the passages that can help you are below:

He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.
Proverbs 18:13

This passage will help you check if you have all the information you need to make a correct decision. It can save you from making uninformed decisions.

The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going.
Proverbs 14:15

This Scripture above will help you get second opinion on information and be sure that both are correct. You can find out what experts or more experienced people in a particular field are saying about the decision you want to make. Proverbs 11:14 says:

Where no counsel is, the people fail; but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.

Therefore; the word of God will point your attention to,your integrity. Proverbs 22:1 says “A good name is rather to be chosen than riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold”. Stay away from options that will negatively affect your integrity. The word of God is so rich that there is no aspect of human life that it does not address. Study to show yourself approved unto God (2 Timothy 2:15).

KEY POINT

If you are accustomed to living by the word of God, you will hardly make wrong decision.

HYMN 14: NEARER MY GOD TO THEE

1. Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer to thee!
E’en though it be a cross
That raiseth me.
Still all my song shall be
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer to thee!

2. Though like the wanderer,
The sun gone down,
Darkness be over me,
My rest a stone,
Yet in my dreams I’d be
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer to thee!

3. There let the way appear,
Steps unto heav’n;
All that thou sendest me,
In mercy giv’n;
Angels to beckon me
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer to thee!

4. Then with my waking thoughts
Bright with thy praise,
Out of my stony griefs
Bethel I’ll raise;
So by my woes to be
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer, my God, to thee,
Nearer to thee!
