We can choose to trust God or we can choose to trust in ourselves or others.
We can choose to stay stuck in the past and rehearse every hurt or we can choose to grab ahold of the great Promises for our future in Christ.
We can choose to live in doubt and unbelief and be tossed around by our unsteady emotions or we can choose to Agree, Believe, and Confess the Word of God over every situation.
We can choose to eat crap, over indulge in food, alcohol, smoke cigarettes or do drugs, lay around in bed or on the couch all day watching TV or playing with our gadgets online and continue to defile, vandalize, and destroy our temples or we can choose to altar our flesh and honor and respect our bodies as we should by no longer being a slave to our addictions and compulsions and instead choose healthy foods, habits and exercise.
We can choose to stay in a dead end job or relationship or we can choose to better and respect ourselves and make a change and give some people the much needed Gift of Goodbye.
We can choose to gripe, complain, and moan over our misfortunes or we can choose to praise God even when we are suffering and don’t understand or like what is happening.
We can Choose Blessings or we can Choose Curses….
But Guess what?
We get to choose
And you can’t choose both!
Stop saying – I don’t have a choice.
You always have a choice.
The choices you make may not be what God wants for you to make. God may have already told you what you need to do and you are still dragging your feet in disobedience.
We must tune in and turn to God. Read, hear and do what His word says. Get up and turn off the TV and all the other devices and voices trying to influence you so you can make sure you are choosing wisely.
Don’t just be hearers- be doers.
We are the choice we make.
You can either choose to
Or Give it all to God!
Look, you’ve got two choices: you can be blessed, or you can be cursed. If you obey His commands, which I’m giving you today, you’ll be blessed. If you don’t obey His commands—if you leave the path I’m showing you today so you can worship other gods who are foreign to you, then you’ll be cursed. ~ Deuteronomy 11:26-28 The VOICE
You must be doers of the word and not only hearers who mislead themselves. Those who hear but don’t do the word are like those who look at their faces in a mirror. They look at themselves, walk away, and immediately forget what they were like. But there are those who study the perfect law, the law of freedom, and continue to do it. They don’t listen and then forget, but they put it into practice in their lives. They will be blessed in whatever they do. James 1:22-25 CEB
Jesus looked at them intently, then said, “Without God, it is utterly impossible. But with God everything is possible.” ~ Mark 10:27
