FREE TO CHOOSE

Choices ! What an in-depth subject to think about.

That issue is as old as creation itself. God made us with a FREE will. That means we can determine what course we will take by the choices we make. Very important when we think of the reality of it. In a study made at the University of Minn. Dr. Erich Klinger found that all of us make anywhere from 300 to 1700 decisions every day. When and where we go, what we wear, do for others, cafeteria lines, etc.

Our lives are made up of a network of choices, but often our mindset isn’t in line for the long haul. We want what we want NOW. EVE thought about her challenge, saw what looked good made her choice and fell headlong down into history. She defied God’s order.

We create what we become by the network of our daily choices. Do we choose to live life as it is played out to us or do we kick against the pricks. God didn’t create us like a machine that is programmed to do a certain thing at the click of a button. He made us in His likeness… to love, to comfort, to be intercessors, to help carry others burdens.

MARY the Mother of Jesus said: Be it unto me as You will.

PAUL said: I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

DAVID: chose the Lion’s Den rather than deny God.

JOSHSUA: As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.

JESUS: Chose the cross.

YOU….ME…? God, help us make choices to Glorify You.

Our greatest and most profitable choice in life is to receive

what Jesus did for us on Calvary. He provided Eternal Life !

Do you have a goal as to what and who you would like to be? Pray about your choices.
