8GREAT PRINCIPLES TO MAKING THE BEST DECISIONS.
- THE ENCYCLOPAEDIA PRINCIPLE;
Get as many of the facts as you can before making a decision.
Face the facts. Most people don’t embrace all the facts. People want to ignore the facts.
Romans 4:19 Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead —since he was about a hundred years old —and that Sarah’s womb was also dead.
- THE CPR PRINCIPLE.
Process is everything and refining that process is super important.
- THE BABE RUTH PRINCIPLE;
Timing is everything.
Ecc 3:1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens
- THE ACE CARD PRINCIPLE
What’s the Ace card. It’s the one that trumps everythings else. It’s the highest scoring card. It’s the one you try to get in a game of blackjack as it gives you the greatest chance of winning. When you have an ace in blackjack you can make excellent decisions.
God needs to be your ACE. God wants to speak to you.
Prov 3: 5Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life! Honor God with everything you own; give him the first and the best.
