Indecision Can Kill You

A few weeks ago it was raining pretty hard and I drove past an accident. It was clear what had happened, the car had run into a dividing barrier at the tollbooth. This person was indecisive about the direction he wanted to go and at the last moment he changed his mind, right into an accident. The person was OK but his indecision could’ve killed him.

Just like indecision while driving can kill you, indecision in your Christian walk can kill your faith. Faith is believing and indecision is to doubt what you once believed.

In Elijah’s day, the people of Israel were indecisive about whether they wanted to serve God or serve the god Baal, and when Elijah addressed the people he said, “How long will you hesitate between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him, but if Baal, follow him. But the people did not answer him a word.” 1 Kings 18:21.

How long will you hesitate between two opinions? Make a decision and stick with it! Have you made the decision to make Jesus Lord of your life? To make Jesus Lord of your life is to no longer be indecisive about following Him, it is to make choices that support godliness and righteousness and it is to bring forth fruit which proves you have repented.

Make the decision today, that Jesus will be Lord over every area of your life and stick to it, no longer allowing yourself to have an opinion in the matter. It’s either Him or you, it can not be both.

Father, help me to follow you fully, making the decision once and for all, that you are Lord of my life. In the name of Jesus, I pray.
