Some people are quick to make decisions while others are slow. The time you take in making a decision determines how well you will achieve your objectives. It is important to note that decisions are not the major thing but the way and know how of how to achieve the object.

Examinations are guided by time, some people fail not because they don’t know but they are slow in making decisions on how to express themselves, how to tackle questions and which questions to tackle first.

Some people waste their years in the valley of decision. Some wait to get at forty so that their life will begin. I have seen so many people who got at forty and nothing changed in their life, some who are even over forty and their life is actually retarding and becoming worse and worst. The majority are actually regretting and wish if they could be taken back even by five years. They have strong belief that they will be different people and surely they will be.
Some wait to first get a job, married, money, educated, known, etc so that their life gets better. It’s not very wrong to do that but I have also seen many who have waited for all that and as soon as they get all this their lives got worse. Many people are in the valley of decision. How long do you take to decide what you want to do tomorrow? What do wait for so that you can do that? Make your decisions in time and wisely.
The scripture above talks of the restoration of Judah. God Had promised restoration and He was instructing all people to get ready for the restoration. This is when He said to the weak be strong, say I am strong, saying to the farmers turn all your farming equipment to weapons of war and get ready for war because I want to restore you. This is when He is now saying multitudes and multitudes are in the valley of decision. Some think it’s a joke, some think it’s impossible while some are saying that’s madness. Even their oppressors couldn’t take it seriously and fail to see the trouble coming on them. This is very true about our lives today. How many people are saying its impossible that one day Jesus Christ shall return, its madness that this world and everything in it shall pass away, that its outrageous to say that we shall stand before God and be accountable of our own lives, works and words.
Multitudes and multitudes are in the valley of decision. It happened in Sodom and Gomorrah and many people perished by fire and burning sulphur , it happened in the times of Noah and many were swept away by the floods and died. Refuse to be in the valley of decision. Some people are saying I will seriously worship God, repent of my sins, born again and live for God next year. You are in the valley of decision if you are like that. Some are saying well this stuff is good and I really want to be a Christian but I know one day I will be a serious Christian, if you are like that you are in the valley of decision. Remember the best time is NOW.
