Sciencing Life Decisions: Beginning and End

“Sciencing Life Decisions:  Beginning and End”
Wednesday, September 28, 2016
Pastor Dave Clear
Proverbs 3:5-6; Jeremiah 29:11; Psalm 40:8

My philosophy on decisions:

1.  I try to avoid making decisions.

Illustration:  treating malaria in Borneo in the 1950’s

2.  If I must make a decision, I slow down.

3.  If I must make a quick decision, I always remember to pray.

Life and life’s decisions are a mixture of the following:

1.  My decisions

2.  The sovereign will of God

The Year of Jubilee (Leviticus 25)

Basic principle:  the sovereignty and ownership of God


P – God has a plan.

Illustration:  disciples on the ship in Matthew 14.  In this story, Jesus does three things for Peter and the others:

1.  He prayed.

2.  He came!

3.  He saved!

L – God’s plan is a loving plan.

A – God’s plan recognizes God’s authority.

N – Neglect is possible.
