Life can become complicated when people do not know how to make decisions and stick with them. I am guilty of this too and my life was complicated because i couldn’t make decisions and stand by them. Thankfully all that is changed now because i have learned that i can do all things through Christ who strengthens me and i am stronger in christ. I realised how strong my mind but above all I learned not to swear either by heaven or by earth or by any other oath so that I may not sun and fall under condemnation James 5:12.

I learned if I want to make a decision I just say yes or no and try not to keep changing my mind. We often labour over the choices and options before us,  when actually when you stand in front of your closet in the morning looking at all of your clothes, all we have to do is just choose something and put it on. Don’t go back and forth until you make yourself late for work, church, school and so on and so forth.
When you get ready to go out to eat, pick a restaurant and go. Don’t become so confused that you feel there is no place good enough to satisfy you (except you are not hungry)  We cannot have everything we want at the same time. We need to learn how to make a decision and stand by it.

Let me encourage you to start making decisions without second guessing ourselves or worrying about the choices we make. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. Don’t be double-minded or wishy-washy, because doubting your decisions after you make them will steal the enjoyment from everything you do. Make the best decisions so you can and trust God with the results. This relates to everything we do.

Don’t be anxious or afraid of being wrong. If your heart is right and you make a decision not in accordance with God’s will, he will forgive you and help you move in. Be decisive. Whatever you need to do in life, just do it and keep it simple.
