“Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live! You can make this choice by loving the LORD your God, obeying him, and committing yourself firmly to him. This is the key to your life.”
Deuteronomy 30:19-20 (NLT)
Choices can make all the difference in the world. We are constantly taking in data, predicting and making choices. There are so many choices each day we cannot keep count. However, some choices are more important that others. Vanilla or chocolate ice cream may not alter your world one little bit. But moral or legal issues can alter your life. The friends you choose, the things you choose to do to please others, all these have ways of influencing our lives. That is why some choices must be made in order to steer us. Who you are going to marry has a lot to do with the rest of your life. College choices, career decisions . . . these are important milestones. But the one choice that guides all others is your choice to follow God or not. Moses calls it “choosing life”. And like many major choices, they are only as good as the thousands of little choices you make to support your decision. You can decide to cross an ocean in a sail boat, but it is the daily choices you make in re-correcting your course that gets you to the other shore. In the marriage ceremony we ask the groom, “Will you love her, comfort her, honor and keep her, in sickness and in health, and forsaking every other, keep to her only, so long as you both shall live?” He can say, “I do” but it is only as good as him getting up everyday and saying, “I will!” Moses said that you can choose life by making a choice to love God, obey Him and committing yourself firmly to Him. Today choose to follow God in all you do because “choosing to follow God is the key to your life.”
Father, today I choose You. I choose to live for You. I choose to follow you in all that I do. Guide me, direct me. Give me the strength to do this, in Jesus’ name.
