An Algorithm With an Amen: Choose God’s Ways

Algorithms- Choose God's Ways

First, Seek Him...

When we truly choose God, then we give Him authority over all the rest of our life’s choices. This means that our decisions are no longer just based on our own logic, experiences or feelings but on what He would have us do. What does this look like in your life?

...Then Speak Him

Part of discipling the next generation is teaching them how to make wise, godly decisions. This does not mean imposing a rule-based legalism on them; it is teaching them how to live out their relationship with the Lord in practical ways. Speak Him to them today!

Psalm 25:12
“Who, then, are those who fear the Lord? He will instruct them in the ways they should choose.”

Word

God, what are you saying to me through this Scripture?

If we truly choose to serve God, then we live by His authority about what to choose next. What we say and do will be based on the “algorithms” of His voice and His instructions in His Word, not our own random decisions. When we “fear the Lord” and make Him first place in our lives, He promises to “instruct (us) in the ways (we) should choose.” ~ Have you put Jesus first in your life? How? What decisions are you facing right now? Have you asked God to instruct You in His way for your choices?

Why

God, why does this matter?

Algorithms matter because, simply put, they determine what’s next. This Scripture matters, because, when God’s algorithms – through a relationship with Jesus – are applied to our lives, everything changes. The Apostle Paul said, I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20). When Christ lives in and through us, we walk by faith not by sight. We listen to His voice and obey His Word. We do what He tells us to do next. ~ Is this true in your life? How? What does this look like?

What

God, What Else Does Your Word Say About This?

God promises to bless His people who walk according to His way instead of just their own. Psalm 119:1-2 says, “Blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk according to the law of the Lord. Blessed are those who keep his statutes, who seek Him with all their heart.” ~ What blessing(s) have you experienced as you’ve followed Christ? How are you choosing to live according to His way right now? Is it worth it?

Worship

God, How do you want me to respond to this truth?

When we choose God, we worship Him by giving Him authority over all the rest of our lives’ decisions. We choose what He would have us choose and live how He would have us live. Our decisions – like who we vote for or how we dress or what we do with our time – are no longer based solely on logic, experience or feeling. We submit everything to God and His “algorithms” for our lives. ~ Let’s pray right now about the decisions and choices we have as individuals and as a family this month.

Psalm 25:12
“Who, then, are those who fear the Lord? He will instruct them in the ways they should choose.”

A Family Blessing

A Blessing from this Lesson to Speak over Those God has Entrusted to You!

God, help us choose You and then choose what You would have us choose. We submit our lives for Your glory and our good. May Your Kingdom come and will be done in us, as we live Your “Algorithms with an Amen.”
