Choices Divide. Deal with it. Life as a Christian sometimes requires flying solo in our choices.
In life you don’t get to sit on the fence or plead the Fifth: not making a choice is a choice. There is no middle ground or playing safe, you are either for or against and as long as you are breathing, life presents you with choices.
When your life is defined by sets of principles you won’t pander to pressure.
Let people know what you stand for.
God presents us with a very important choice. Today I ask heaven and earth to be witnesses. I am offering you life or death, blessings or curses. Now, choose life! Then you and your children may live. Deuteronomy 30:19, NCV.
From Genesis to Revelations, we see the impact of choices for generations. From Abraham having Ismael to Jacob stealing his birth-right and Jesus choosing to lay his life down for the sins of the world.
When you gave your life to Christ you became a marked person. You are marked by the blood of Jesus Christ. You also caught the attention of the devil. Being a friend of Christ makes you an enemy of the devil and the world. Friends of my enemy are my enemies. Your choice will bring division from your friends and family.
Your choices matter and they carry consequences whether you know it or not. Every choices, words, and action produce an effect.
Your thoughts, behaviors, and actions create specific effects that manifest and create your life as you know it. Nothing just happened!
You will never please everyone no matter how hard you try. Live to please God, not man.
Every great dream you’ll ever achieve in life starts with a DECISION. You’ll never know what you can achieve until you make that choice.
Your decisions today determine your destiny tomorrow. You have the power to change your life today! Your life is not about you alone. Every decision you make will affect your destiny. Think long-term when making a decision. Your destiny is in your hands.
You have the freedom to do whatever you like, but you must also be prepared to live with the consequences of your choice. God has given you a free will, be careful what you do with it.
Don’t be afraid to make difficult choices. You are one decision away from happiness.
In this season of your life, you don’t have time for trial and error. Time wasted may never be regained. Do not take another decision without the leading of the Holy Spirit. Ask Him to guide you in all your decisions & wait on the Lord! You will hit the bulls-eye!
The decision to serve God is the most important decision you will ever make. This One decision will shape the direction of your life and be more decisive in future decisions.
There are many great opportunities ahead of you, ask God for discernment in making the right decision.
PRAYER: Lord, in my eagerness and desperation I’ve made wrong choices, direct my heart back to you. Remove stubborn pride from my heart, help me to find my way back to you. I know nothing I’ve done can separate me from your love. I take comfort in your loving kindness and grace. Amen.
Lord, help us to see the things that you see, to hear the words that you are speaking to us today. Holy Spirit, help us in our discernment, to make godly choices. Remove the veil from our hearts and eyes so that we may listen and obey your instructions. Amen.
