Our choices are power! One of the most important things in Life is freedom of choice! I believe that we are the leading characters in our own life story! I also have a personal belief that God the Creator is the author of my life story, He holds the pen. However, He has given me a free will to choose what my life will be. He tells us that we have the power to choose life or death.
Deuteronomy 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
:20 (KJV)That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.ither choose life or death, blessing or cursing.
Are you holding the pen to your life story or have you handed over to other people, or circumstances? I often hear people say “I didn’t have any choice but to do this or to do that!” It is true that sometimes it seem as though we have no choice, but we always have a choice. We often think by not doing anything when circumstances are too difficult that we have not made a choice, when in reality, by doing nothing, we’ve made a choice! We chose to let the circumstance write that paragraph or chapter in our life’s story.
Unfortunately, many of the circumstances in life are not fair or just. In life we are always going to have conflict. Many times in our story the circumstances are the villains. They are the bad guys because once we surrender to them; they like to dictate how we live from that point on. Sometimes we live years of our lives chained or imprisoned by a circumstance where we thought we had no power to make a choice, but the good news is we still have power to make choices. Let’s make a powerful decision to come out of that circumstance and began a new chapter in our lives! We can turn the page and break the chains of past decisions!
Yes, sometimes it is easier said than done, however if you know that you were created to have a good life then the decisions are easier to make. You must realize that God wants better for you! He has already written a good book about you!
Psalms 139:13 (KJV) For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.
14I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
15My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
17How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!
18If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.
I hope that from this day forward that you use your power to make great choices for your life! My prayer is that your life story will have a wonderful ending. It is not a fairytale to believe that you can be happy ever after!
