True, sometimes big events change our lives.

But what matters more are our daily decisions.

This is a bold statement from a special witness of Jesus Christ! It’s different from what the world tells us.

Movies, shows, and influencers often encourage us to chase the next “spectacular” thing—the newest gadget, the coolest vacation, the most popular clothes, the sold-out concert.

Sometimes even in the gospel, we tend to focus so much on one-time events that we forget that the bulk of our life is shaped by an accumulation of smaller daily decisions.

  • Alma the younger seemed to understand this. Even though he saw an angel, Alma later wrote that his testimony came because he “fasted and prayed many days” to know what was true (Alma 5:46).
  • Similarly, the prophet Elijah discovered that the voice of the Lord wasn’t in the wind, earthquake, or fire—but rather in the “still, small voice” (1 Kings 19:12).

Maybe this is a good time for a spiritual self-assessment. Are you making decisions that align with the doctrine of Jesus Christ? Doing this will bring peace into your life like nothing else can!
