One of most powerful attributes of the individual is the power to choose. We are faced with choices all the time, and these choices determine the consequences.
At some point in our lives, if we want to see the victory manifested that Christ already died to give us, we will have to make a stand for God.
The reason the believer is blessed is because they refuse to follow the advice or take council from ungodly men.
God would rather we live in the supernatural, seeing his goodness and power all the time in small portions, and this is how we learn to trust him and remain in him, grounded and unshakable.
Key – We must find delight in and desire the Word of God.
God’s intent from the beginning was for man to operate from a position of victory and rest instead of hard, laborious work. God wanted us to enjoy what we do and He did not want us to be under bondage or commitment by force. He wanted us to choose to serve him from a position of joy and free will. Jesus’s finished work at the cross has put us back to that position.
When Jesus moves into our heart, he equips us with everything necessary to please him. Once this truth is established in our lives that God calls us to be in relationship with him, then he enables us to please him. With this mindset embedded in us, we can now look to the Word with excitement and enthusiasm.
As we meditate on God’s promises, it seems as if the canvas of life comes alive with radiant colors that not only change our world but the world of others around us.
Power Thought: I understand that my choices today will determine consequences so I desire and delight in the Word of God.
