“Obey the LORD your God and follow his commands and decrees that I give you today.”
Have you ever tossed a coin into the air and said, “heads I win, tails you lose”? As children, we play games based completely on chance.
However, life is not a matter of chance; it’s a matter of choice. To obey Him or disobey Him, the choice is yours. To determine whether you will stay in the land and prosper or be driven off.
Rather than success being random, God gave Israel the choice to be the head or the tail. Life is a constant stream of opportunities and choices. We have to choose to stand on God’s promises and commands or choose to follow the idols of self and this world.
Lord God, You are gracious, loving and kind. Thank You for Your Word and the instruction we receive from it. Help me to apply Your wisdom to my life. I want to be spared the painful discipline that follows disobedience. Holy Spirit, I need Your help and quickening as I navigate through the choices that will present themselves today. Help me pause and remember there is potential and possibility in each and every choice I make. May I use each one to bring glory and honor to You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
