It’s Time to Decide Your Life’s Priorities

“The time for us to decide our life priorities is before they are tested. Only then can we be ready for challenges when they come”–Jim Denison.

“We make our decisions, and then our decisions turn around and make us”–Frank Boreham.

“But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord”–Joshua 24:15.

“Putting it off doesn’t relieve stress. It only creates more work down the line”–

“Eternal life is not a gift from God, eternal life is the gift of God. The energy and the power which was manifested in Jesus will be manifested in us by the sheer sovereign grace of God when once we have made the moral decision about sin. [As we decide to die to sin], the full life of God comes in. . . . Slowly and surely the great full life of God will invade us in every part, and men will take knowledge of us that we have been with Jesus”–Oswald Chambers.

“Fretting arises from our determination to have our own way. Our Lord never worried and was never anxious because His purpose was never to accomplish His own plans, but to fulfill the plans of His Father. Fretting is not weakness, but wickedness for a Child of God”–Ron Herrod.

“Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass”–Psalm 37:4-5.
