Valley of Decision

Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.  Joel 3:14 KJV

valley of decisionEntering the tenth grade in schools in my country leads students into the valley of decision.

Each child must decide to major in science, art, or commercial classes. Their decisions determine their future professions and the subjects they will study for the following three grades. Some choose the same things as their friends, some follow the path their parents have chosen for them, and others follow their hearts.

Earth is our valley of decision, and it is also a place of reflection and contemplation. God sets before us a decision for life or death. He doesn’t coerce; He advises,

The valley of decision is beyond the physical dimension. It is a time, a place, and a lifetime. Choice is one crucial thing God gives us. We can choose to serve Him or do otherwise. But one day, we will be transported from the valley of decision to the judgment seat. Here, we can make no choices or decisions. Instead, we will hear only proclamations.

Presently, we have a window of grace and live in the valley of decision. But the clock is ticking, and no alarm will alert us to Christ’s coming. We must choose today to follow God and obey His Word.  

What decisions are you making about Christ?
