We All Have A Choice
Which way to go? What is the right path? What if this or that happens? Maybe I should wait to decide? Life is full of choices each and every day. From many experiences in my life I am beginning to learn to ask different questions like…What is God up to in my life? or How does God want to use me today?
I usually run into trouble when I start thinking too much about a decision on my own and I have been a slow learner when it comes to “consult God first and leave it in his hands”. What I have found is life decisions seem to be easier when I look to God first and ask for wisdom and guidance regarding a situation rather than try to process every “If then” and “What if” I can think of on my own.
I can’t stop thinking about what the apostle Paul said in 2 Corinthians 12:10 “That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, than I am strong”.
To me that says when I rely on God first, when I surrender to his will and not my own, that is when I can be at my best in this world.
In life it all comes down to this….we all have a choice on how we are going to live our lives…are we going to consult the Creator? The one who made us, who loves us no matter what? Or are we going to continue to stumble along the path of the fallen world and live writhing in sin without regard for what God intended for us? (Been there done that)
We all have been given the same thing…..life and some amount of time to live it…what we choose to do with it is up to us.
May God’s peace be with you.
