“What man is he that feareth the Lord? Him shall He teach in the way that He shall choose.” – Psalm 25:12
You are free to choose. You are not free, however, not to choose. After you make a choice, your choice chooses for you.
There are consequences for your choices—always. If you choose to step off the roof of a ten-story building, you are not then free to choose the consequence of your choice. Your choice has chosen for you.
What if you make a bad choice? What is God’s reaction? First, He is in control. Your choices will not take Him by surprise. Thanks to God, He can prevail over our bad choices to restore us into fellowship with Himself!
Have you made a choice in your past that has brought you consequences reverberating even today? Share this insight with someone who is younger in the faith.
In the Old Testament there is an example of the power faith in a courageous young man named Daniel. As a member of the household of a pagan King, Daniel refused to bend to the will of the Monarch. He was subjected to torture and the sentence of death, yet not a hair on his head was damaged. Daniel is a good example of what GOD’s children can do, if those children stand up and be counted as faithful. Doing so is not for the faint of heart, donchaknow. Dare to Be a Daniel! That’s what I get from My Box of Chocolates. AMEN
