Word for Today: October 20
Right Choices are choices and decisions that are based on the Word of God. They have TRUTH as their foundation. They agree with God and with God’s Word. They line up with the plan and purpose of God for your life. Right Choices guarantee God’s cooperation with you in every life situation. They make you partners with God… Right Choices will bring God’s Power into play in fulfilling your dreams and visions and goals. When you decide right you make a spiritual connection with God and no power in heaven or earth will defeat or stand against you… All of heaven’s resources become available to you when you Choose Life… And they are guaranteed and secured by the Faithfulness and Integrity of Almighty God.
Wrong Choices are choices and decisions that are based on the logic and reason of the World System. They are arrived at by feeling and sight and emotion. They are always “reasonable”. Their foundation is Fact and their power is limited to what man and his mind can do. They lock one into the natural and never allow him to break into the supernatural. Wrong choices will release satan to attack and buffet. This is humanism in raw form. Wrong choices invite demons to possess and oppress. Everything that is based on decisions made in natural reasoning and sense knowledge is subject to failure. They all have the seed of Death in them and death will ultimately prevail. All wrong choices issue forth from human reasoning, natural facts, sense knowledge and an unrenewed mind.
Right choices bring God’s very best into your life. Wrong choices empower satan to steal, kill and destroy; to bring confusion and devastation and sickness and disease and failure. Your present condition is the direct result of choices you made in the past. If you do not like what is happening to you it is because you made some wrong choices in the past. Don’t complain and gripe… decide to change your choices… Decide to choose Life.
God plainly told the Israelites to choose life and as a result they would live. Not only would they live, but so would their seed. And they would all live a long time. This is an Old Testament promise. The New Testament covenant we have that is ratified by the Blood of Jesus is a stronger, better and more binding covenant. The Old was secured by the blood of bulls and goats. The New is guaranteed by the Blood of the Sinless Son of God.
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: Deut 30:19
