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:
– Deuteronomy 30:19
Welcome to a new week! Thank God you are reading this! There is nothing that could be as frustrating as getting stuck in between two options. It is often times the sign of confusion. In life, there are basically two options as to how to get things done. Its either the right way or the wrong way. It’s either the right method and strategy or the wrong one. Standing in between such options leads to frustration.
We are faced with situations daily, where we often have two choices to choose from, either the good or the bad, good report or negative report, wise counsel or foolish counsel. Whichever we go for is what determines our life thereafter. The choice we make in turn chooses also our future.
This is another week, yesterdays mistakes are gone. This week will present to you new challenges, options, and crossroads. The question will be, what will you make out of them? It is your choice that will determine the outcome of your life in that situation.
You will face persons that are just agents of frustrations who does nothing but to frustrate and sabotage your efforts and good works. What will you do then? Will you choose to let such people get a better part of you or would you walk over them in wisdom and love? Remember that anger is only found in the bosom of fools. You will face trials this week, but the question would be; are you going to choke yourself in self-piety or take up your weapon as a believer and fight to victory. Remember, it’s your choice that makes all the difference. You will hear evil reports this week, what will be your reaction? Are you going to let the news get you depressed or will you forge ahead in faith? Choose wisely. You will be faced with situations where you are tempted to compromise your faith and principles. Despite who is involved, will you stand on your virtues or willingly choose not to be seen as “foolish” in the sight of those people. Choose wisely.
This week starting from today will present you a blank cheque. Will you accept anything that life throws at you or will you make demands based on your redemptive rights in Christ Jesus. It is what you choose, that you live with thereafter. Choose wisely.
How long will you stand on the fence? Today, its either Jesus or satan, light or darkness. Choose wisely because the choice you make will choose for you tomorrow, glory or shame, success or failure, heaven or hell. Have a blessed week ahead!
