Our Choice

"... But if your heart turns away so that you do not hear, and are drawn away, and worship other gods and serve them, ... you shall surely perish; you shall not prolong your days ... I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, ... that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days;" (Deuteronomy 30:17-20a NKJ)

God created us - Adam and Eve were His first - and we created more. We are not on equal footing with God. No one is of His stature. He is Above all, greater than our greatest. Each of us is created to be like Him, but it is our choice to Be like Him, to listen to Him, to obey Him, to follow in His footsteps.

Likewise, it is our choice to listen to our feelings, to give in to self-doubt, to settle on self, and not on Him, to chase our sorrow in drink (or food), to never open the pages of His book, to never get started on a new road. It is always our choice.

We choose every day. We feel pain and agony, whether physical or emotional, and we can settle there and constantly complain of how we "feel" today ... or, we can move on. Get busy. Open His word. Get into His word. Pursue study. Listen to what He says to us. Find a Bible-believing and teaching church if you don't already attend or belong to one. Get involved. Become attuned to where you need to be. You may discover that where you need to be is where you want to be, and nothing in your life will prevent you from following Him.

It is your choice.

What have you decided?
Will you follow Jesus?
