"I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; "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; and that you may dwell in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them." Deuteronomy 30:19, 20

God has given us the ability to choose which direction we will take for our lives. One produces life and the other one death. Which one will you choose?

Father, I thank You for the life that You have given me in Christ Jesus! That life is one that is prosperous and that produces within me the zoe, God kind of life. I thank You for giving me the freedom to choose. You have not created me as a robot or a puppet on a string, but You have created me in your image and likeness with the ability to make my own choices. I choose Your life over the negative, downward spiraling thoughts that produce the actions that bring the death of my health, relationships and destiny. Today I choose life! In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

  Can you imagine having someone who loves so completely and deeply and honestly giving every human being on this earth through out all time the free will to decide to love God or not.

What an awesome and splendid plan for all man kind.

I am a son of God and so happy and proud to be able to choose Him so that I now can belong to Him.

We have been given the freedom to choose Him or deny Him. This takes such love and wisdom and grace and truth that our finite minds really cannot comprehend a loving Father such as this.

Avanell what a beautiful blog. emoticon

    Thank you for sharing this message Avanell. It is wonderful that we have a choice to make to either follow God or we can go in the opposite direction. Praise God that I chose the path that is led by God. Have a blessed day.

Amen and amen! To be able to choose Eternity- is almost unimaginable, but true!
As a Jewish Believer it is an extra special perk of loving our dear Lord, LOL.
