You know what one of the things is that I love most about God? He trusts us. I know that sounds crazy, like a huge mistake. After all, don’t do things wrong? Don’t we get in trouble? Don’t we choose wrong?
Yeah, we do. We get it wrong, a lot of the time. We make those wrong choices. We blow it. It happens. And then you know what else happens?
The sun sets. The sun rises. And it’s a new day. A new day full of choices and possibilities. A new day to be faithful. A new day to follow after God. A new day to see exactly what it is that God will do. And what we will do. Listen to what happens today in Deuteronomy 30: 19-20:
I call heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Choose life so that you and your descendants may live, loving the Lord your God, obeying him, and holding fast to him; for that means life to you and length of days, so that you may live in the land that the Lord swore to give to your ancestors, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.
God tells the people as they go into the Promised Land – choose today. Choose life, choose death. Choose.
He gives them that choice, because He trusts them.
And He does you today as well. Today, you will have lots of choices. Some big, some little. Some you’ll get right. Some you’ll get wrong.
Listen to God. Listen to His voice in His Word. In prayer. Through others. Listen. And follow wherever it is that He is calling.
Because of all the choices you have to make, this is the most important. Will we listen to His voice? And will we follow it? Because if we make that choice right, everything else falls into place.
Today, may we be faithful with the choices we make. God trusts you, He loves you. Follow Him where He leads.
