Have we been uncertain of what we are doing? Or did we ever question if what we’re doing is right or wrong? Doubted what to do and execute? Being unstable can affect our personal and corporate accomplishments. Whenever doubt sinks in to our system it causes our way towards our goal hazy and therefore unattainable.
Making decisions is part of our daily lives. Our actions determines our choices and decisions regardless if we were pressured or not. It’s either we do what is right or we do what is wrong. There are times that the pressure around us so intense that will motivate us to make crucial decisions and take necessary actions.
The effects of the current global pandemic has hit every aspect of our lives - individually or corporately. We are facing a pressing time where we need to constantly choose between righteousness and wickedness, between good and bad, and be able to survive.
Sadly, we have observed that some people started the race righteously but ended up taking the the opposite, allowing compromises. Yesterday they were crying for a graft-free society then we find them giving into corruption the next moment because of dire need. What are we really standing on? Are we going to change our purpose every time the situation change? Indecisive people tends to just follow the norm and just goes with the flow. They don’t have a stand about certain situations. When pressures sets in and we need to decide, will we keep on raising the banner of righteousness or will we let go and give up? Will we be decisive enough to stand firm on righteousness even if the majority does otherwise?
Just as what Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego said to King Nebuchadnezzar when they’ve been pressured to kneel and worship his image. They were aware of the consequences of their choice, yet they stood firm because they were 100% convinced that they are doing what should be done. They were decisive enough, they know their purpose and they’re willing to fight for it ‘til the end. As they uttered to the king,”If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it, and He will rescue us from your hand, O king. But even if God does not, we want you to know, O king that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up."
Even if the right choices doesn’t always sit well with us, we must still hold firm to what we’re called for - we are called for righteousness! We should abstain from every form of evil because we are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that we may declare the praises of Him who called us out of darkness into His wonderful light.
Decisiveness is knowing our purpose and being certain on our way towards its accomplishment. It is knowing our goal and being firm on it - uninfluenced by the changing standards and unaffected by the pressures in our environment. To be decisive means to be certain of who we are and what we are called to do. We are called to stand for righteousness, and we need to be certain of it ‘til the end. (MAT, CRFV)
