If you haven’t realized it yet, let me be the first to tell you: There is a difference between “good decisions” and “God decisions.” Whhhaaaaaa??? I know right! Seven years ago you wouldn’t have been able to get me to swallow that one, but thank God for wisdom, maturity, and spiritual growth! Let’s just say, He’s gotten me all the way together over these past several years.
Ok, so let me get to the point. A few weeks ago I was offered an INCREDIBLE opportunity!! I mean it was an opportunity of a lifetime complete with all of the support I’d ever need to walk in the manifestation of the opportunity. A juncture like this would normally run a person thousands of dollars, however, I was being offered this shot for FREE NINETY NINE!! Come again!?? Chhhhiiillllleee what chu said??? Lol!
I thought about the opportunity for about a day. I imagined myself walking that thang out, and I just knew I’d be perfect for it! It was a REALLY GOOD idea!! I went into prayer about it, and I don’t even know if it was a full day before my Abba Father spoke to me and said, “Daughter, there’s a difference between a “good idea” and a “God idea.” This one is a “good” idea. Let it go. It’s not yours.”
This is how I know He’s developed me beyond anything I’m capable of in my own strength. He started explaining to me that I “could” take advantage of this opportunity, and I’d make a TRAILBLAZING impact, have a great life, and He’d be right there beside me opening all sorts of doors that I’d never be able to open on my own. He also showed me the influence and authority I’d have as a change agent in this role. As you can imagine, I was ecstatic as He was walking me through this entire vision!
That is, until He said, “Daughter ALL of that would be yours, but you’d be settling for LESS than my best for you.” Me: Ahem..*clears throat and extends a lil side eye. So you mean to tell me what You have planned for my life is even BETTER than that!??Heeeeyyyyy!! Well, I’m gonna be a declining sistah! Lmbo! No thank you opportunity. I’ll wait on my Heavenly Father’s “God” decision.
The point I’m attempting to make here is just because it is a “good” decision doesn’t mean it’s a “God” decision. By “God” decision I mean it’s not His will for your life. Let me make it plain. Have you ever met a man or woman who sounds “perfect” for you on paper, but then when you meet them, there’s just no chemistry? The spark is nonexistent. The flame is blaaahh. The person is a “good” choice, they’re just not “God’s” choice for you. Does that clear it up? Tell me I’m not the only one who’s had that experience. I thought he was Mr. Right when I learned about him, but when we met it was just like, “Nahhhhhhh sway.” Lol.
The truth is, there’s nothing wrong with that. Discernment is a beautiful thing. No one wants to settle in a relationship, a career, an opportunity, a college choice, a home purchase or even on selecting a mentor. “Settling” for less than God’s best is simply not an option for me. I’ve been exposed to TOO much of my Daddy God and I’m coming for ALL mines! *insert duck lips….lmbo
As we develop spiritually, we can’t afford to be a lesser version of ourselves. The world needs ALL of you! If you settle for “good” simply because it’s comfortable, you don’t want to disappoint others, or you live for the fame of what that moment could bring….you’re doing yourself and your Heavenly Father a disservice. He has SOOO much more in store for you!
If you’re currently feeling indecisive about a matter, pray about it and then listen to your spirit. Shut all the noises out and allow your spirit to arise with the God decision. I promise you although it may not make sense at the moment, it’ll all make sense in due season. Cheers to upholding our King’s decisions.

Yaaasss queen! That’s a BIG one! I’d say check out the person’s fruit and also ask Our Father for confirmation. He’ll give it to you. I’m standing in prayer with you doll 🙂
This is crazy because last month God was dealing with me on the decisions that I was making. He said to say “YES” to the God things and “No” to the good things. Periodt!!!
Ayyyyyyeee!!! We’re on the same track sis! We got this gurlie!
