Do you want a good life?
I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live! – Deuteronomy 30:19
It sound silly but we have to choose to have a better life. He wasn’t saying choose between “suicide and breathing.” The Lord made it clearer by saying choose between blessing and cursing, between having a good life and terrible one. Choose between hope for the future (That’s what He was talking about when He mentioned your descendants.) and hopelessness.
Do you want a good life? It seems like a silly question but it’s not. Our choices play a huge part in determining how good are life is. God says choose life or death and then just in case we can’t get it, He say “OH!!!! That you would choose life!” He’s yelling louder than any coach, “Please! Choose right! I love you and want you to have a good life.”
So, do you want a good life? Then choose to follow the ways that will bring God’s blessing, not the devil’s curses.
These 30 days can be the greatest spiritual growth of your entire life, if you’ll choose to do the work, to learn, to change, to have a good life. I’m choosing change, I’m choosing LIFE.
Dear Jesus, help me to choose life today. Help me to avoid that patterns that cause me to make poor choices. I give you my fears that may keep me from making good and Godly choices.
