We all know it. It’s that idea that the smallest decision could potentially have life changing consequences.
What if I don’t go to that party and the love of my life was there?
What if I drive through the back streets instead of the main road and someone runs a give way sign and hits me?
What if I take this job over that one and it makes all the difference in my career?
What if I go on a mission’s trip?
What if I stay home?
What if I marry him?
What if I don’t?
We so often live in fear that our lifelong happiness could hang on our next decision.
But guess what?
We’ve been doing a series at church about decision-making and the will of God, and as I was sitting there one night I was struck by the amazing reality of what governs my life.
It’s the anti-butterfly effect.
I can’t screw up the end game.
And my happiness isn’t dependent on circumstance.
Sure I can make dumb decisions and they can have consequences, that’s just common sense, but I can’t screw up my life, because my life is hid in Christ.
He is my anti-butterfly effect because He’s promised to work all things for my good.
