Today's word is from Today's word is from Deuteronomy 30:19
"I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live."
We are made in the image and likeness of God, and as His children, we are not pre-programmed robots, we get to choose what we do, who we associate with and what our priorities are.
We get to choose our attitude, whether we are going to be angry or whether we are going to count it all joy… We get to choose if we are going to walk in forgiveness or whether we are going to hold onto resentment.
We are surrounded with choices, and what we choose will either lead to life or death.
As you start your day, choose to yield to the leading of the Holy Spirit, choose to let Jesus live through you, and walk in His strength, and choose go out with joy and to be led forth with peace.
In the New Covenant, in Christ, you are not only given a choice, you have a new nature that is naturally drawn to life, you have a desire to choose the right things and you have the ability in Christ to make those life choices, and to successfully implement them.
So the next time your child spills the water, or your spouse dents the car… don’t get all angry and bent out of shape, don’t add insult to injury, choose to lift them when they blow it… just say, “that’s ok, its just a glass of water, its just a car, don’t worry about it!”
LIFE CHOICES BRING LIFE TO EVERY SITUATION… CHOOSE LIFE!
Father, I thank you for giving me the power to choose. I thank You for giving me a new nature in Christ that desires the right things.
I thank You for giving me the ability to do what is right by grace through faith. I choose life this day, and my descendants and I shall live, in Jesus Name!
