Choices and Chances!
There two major tasks every human being embarks upon on daily basis:
1 The race of life
2 The battle of life.
There is no individual that is not engaging in the two daily activities. That was the reason the writer of the book encourages us to DO IT WITH ALL OUR MIGHT!
Interestingly, most people do not understand that life itself is like a computer program! Each step we take must lead to another step! Every decision we take will determine what will happen next! In other word, what we are doing presently will determine the next event!
OUR CHOICES TODAY WILL DETERMINE OUR CHANCES TOMORROW! It is not because we know how to run, it is not we have the strength to fight! Even if we are the best professor on the surface of the earth!
Your chances in the days and years to come will be determined by the choices we are making today! Our responses, attitudes, character, and obedience at the beginning will determine what will happen to us thereafter!
1 Choose life! Deut 30:19-20. Let us make up our mind to choose life! God is the true source of life!
John 1:4 says in HIM there is life! Those who are without Jesus are lifeless! Amos 2:14-15 says “everything they think they have will fail them”
2 Choose to know God and to understand Him. Jer 9:23-24. Your chances are brighter when you know HE WHO KNOWS THE WAY! Job says “I KNOW MY REDEEMER LIVES! Daniel says” THOSE WHO KNOW THEIR GOD SHALL BE STRONG AND DO EXPLOITS” The more you know God, the more HE delights in you. 3 Choose to serve God! Joshua says “As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord” Those who have seen the hands of God will not doubt His ability to do so much more! HE IS ABLE TO DO EXCEEDINGLY! Serve God like men of old, and your reward shall be great in heaven! Serve Him far better than years before! Give to Him so much more than ever before …THE MORE WE SERVE GOD, THE BRIGHTER OUR CHANCES….
5 Choose to LOVE GOD, OBEY HIS VOICE AND CLING TO HIM! 1Cor 2:9 “Eyes have not seen….” He will do what eyes have not seen in your life! There is no point blaming anybody, we all have the same choices to make, God is always available! He is the same God, He will make all things beautiful, He is a faithful God!
…..The more I obey HIM, the brighter my chances, the more I love Him, the brighter my chances, the more I serve Him.. The brighter my chances! DIVINE FAVOR IS THE PRODUCT OF EVERY CHOICE WE HAVE MADE FOR GOD! He beautifies and glorifies those who know and understand HIM!
May your chances be brighter and far better than the previous years!
May your chances be greater than the years before!
May the Lord reward your obedience, love and service you have so far shown to His name and works this year!
May you be prefer ahead of mighty men in JESUS NAME!
