The smallest decision can make a BIG difference in your life.
Pre-destination does not mean that everything is mapped out for us.
1. Experiencing God's abundance begins with a right decision.
Farmer: began with the decision to plant the mustard seed
2. Once you've made the decision, you must nurture the decision.
Farmer: had to water the plant, make sure it took root, was not choked out by weeds
Decisions require follow-up. Yeast must be worked into the dough. (33)
It is much better to do the right thing, even if it is painful, than to do the wrong thing, thinking you will avoid pain.
3. It may take months or even years to see the results of your decision.
Farmer: knew there was a period of time in which the seed would develop and grow into a plant.
For most of the problems we have, there are no easy cures and no quick fixes.
