“Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach.”
– Deuteronomy 30:11
This week, I’ve been discussing the choices we make. I laid before you choices — life or death, prosperity or poverty, health or sickness, joy or regret. Choose life today. You can have the life you want when you become who God has called you to be. It’s time to get serious about these choices. You say it’s impossible. It’s not. It’s probably just hard. But that’s what makes it special and that’s what makes it rare. Some of the best opportunities in the world today are hard. Seek knowledge and get serious about your opportunities. Becoming strong is another way to put it. It’s just a matter of getting strong enough for what’s ahead.
The next step is to just get going! Don’t wait for things to be perfect to get going in your dream, to get going in your faith, your relationships, your marriage, or with your kids. Things are never going to be perfect. In fact, if they were perfect, you wouldn’t be ready for the “winter” when things get tough. If someone asked me, “When is the best time to start a ministry or a business?” Would I say winter or summer, proverbially? It’s always winter. Starting in the winter and thriving in the summer is far better than starting in the summer and shriveling in the winter.
Friend, let’s get serious about our choices and move forward. We have a choice over life or death, prosperity or poverty, health or sickness, joy or regret. Through the Word of God, knowledge is laid before us. I would like to encourage you to choose life, prosperity, and blessings today. You can live the life you have always dreamed of when you become the person God has called you to be. Allow the Holy Spirit to change your heart and then demonstrate your choices to others.
Father, help me to make wise choices every day.
