The Choice Is Yours

You can choose your future and your destiny.  

You can choose to allow the Spirit to love through you and live through you. You can choose to receive the joy of the Lord, to renew your mind, to pray in the Spirit, to be a doer of the Word, to give and forgive and to live by faith. 

God is not the variable in our lives. Grace is a constant, abundant provision for every need. The variable is our will. We choose to be passive or active in our fellowship with God. 

“Whosoever… says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” —Mark 11:23

You are a “whosoever!”

You can be who God wants you to be and walk in as much victory as you want to walk in! How important to you is the abundant life of God?

“…Whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”  —John 3:16

“But whosoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst.” —John 4:14

Rather than being distracted and blinded by circumstances and feelings, each of us is able to focus on the goodness of God, appropriate His promises, and escape the corruption that is in the world. God’s grace is His provision for every need. 

“… as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness … by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” —2 Peter 1:3-4

We can choose to be passive victims or active overcomers!
