Free to Choose

31 Jan

God’s Word: Psalms 132

God’s Attribute: Showers blessings on those who follow His teachings.

God’s Message to me:

I’m not counting as righteous, those who show up for church, but those who step up to following my teachings.  As David prepared me a “home” among the people, you prepare me a “home” in your heart.  And there I will remain as long as I am a welcome guest.  From this vantage point I will shower blessings into your life.

Ahh, you say, blessings: that means I will always have enough money and health and time.  Yes, you will, if you exhibit wisdom in these areas.  I have given you free choice in how you make money and spend it.  Have you developed skills or just settled for any old job?  And about your health: are you eating and exercising properly to keep your body healthy?  Again, that is your free choice.  And then your time: here you also have free choice about how you “spend” or “invest” your time.

My teachings give you wisdom for making choices.  The choices you make dictate how I bless you.  When your child  all their allowance on candy and then cries out to you for more—do you give it?  I have “gifted” you with life and given you the responsibility to live that life wisely.  My blessings come in direct proportion to how wisely you choose to live your life.

God’s Question for me:

Are you spending or investing your health, wealth and time in things of eternal value?

God’s Promise to me:

I’ll shower blessings on those who follow my path and satisfy them with peace of mind.

My Song to God:

Living for Jesus a life that is true,

Striving to please Him in all that I do,

Yielding allegiance, glad-hearted and free—

This is the pathway of blessing for me.

Oh Jesus, Lord and Savior, I give myself to Thee,

For Thou in Thine atonement didst give Thyself for me,

I own no other master—my heart shall be thy throne:

My life I give, hence forth to live, O Christ for Thee alone.
