Something significant , thoughtful thought touch my heart today. About the choices we make. I know it is a valentines day and all posts are about this day. And people are attached the love to the beautiful flowers and send them to whom they love. Does not matter short or long time love or even a starter. They make choice unintentionally to love each other and then when they are in love , they have no choice to get out of it. Our human choices are limited and mostly fallen in mistake. They know they ‘choices’ are not long enough to survive. We choose according to our needs and expectations. Our needs and expectations are desire of our flesh and the world. There is no exception if you are christian or non-christian . Choices are for all human. Moral or non-moral choices are part of us. we make it. We take it. We re-make it again.
Interestingly, God’s purposes are stronger than our choices.
If i i make a choice to go to Hawaii for holiday and pay huge amount of money to go there. And than suddenly i want to change my flight and lose money. It is my choice! And I believe i accept the consequences of losing money. And that choice can effect only a limited of persons. But sometimes are choices effects others too. When you choose to love someone in rest of your life. You choose to be with that person in sickness and healthiness. In bad and good time. You did not choice that only have that person in good times. So , There is a different here, If you make choice according to God’s will and purpose . Your choices will be God’s shape figure. What does that mean? It means the Gods kind of trust would be the fruit of this choice. Against worldly choices creates the fruit of doubt and fall. You join the circle of love of God when you select the things from God’s eyes.There is a lot of story in the Bible about choices and consequences.
Through making choice you can navigate between death and life.
what choice are you making today that can impact nicely your tomorrow ? what is the fruit of it?
God’s choice is perfect and timely. In Him we have peace of mind and heart to make a better choice , a choice that breath freshness into our life.
These verses helps you , meditate on it if you are about to make choice:
Proverbs 16:16: How much better it is to get wisdom than gold! And to get understanding is to be chosen above silver.
Deuteronomy 7:6 :For you are a holy people to the LORD your God; the LORD your God has chosen you to be a people for His own possession out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth.
Psalm 65:4 : How blessed is the one whom You choose and bring near to You To dwell in Your courts We will be satisfied with the goodness of Your house, Your holy temple.
