Daily choices determine eternal destiny!
Every day, people make decisions that can move them closer to their God-ordained destiny—or take them away from it. Like missing an airplane flight, you can miss God’s Will for your destiny if you choose to ignore the flight pattern.
Sitting still by doing nothing is putting God’s plan for your life on hold. Not to make a choice is a choice. Keep in mind that God’s Will for you includes His Will for others who live with you and around you as well. The dynamics of making choices is an ongoing operation.
The determined choices people make effect their eternal destiny God has planned for them to fulfill even before they were born. Psalm 139
Anyone who chooses to ignore God is making a foolish choice.
Psalm 14:1 states, “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.”
James 3:13 states, “Who among you is wise and understanding? Let him prove it through his good life, through deeds done in wisdom’s modesty.”
Wise choices bring life, health, and blessings. Unwise people can bring suffering, disease, injury, and death on themselves and others. Each person has the God-given ability to choose!
God has created each person with a free-will to choose as they will. God has created each person with a destiny, but He will not force you to do anything you do not choose to do.
You can choose what the world considers beautiful, or you can choose what is beautiful for your soul. Albert Einstein once said that “God did not create evil, and man should look for what is, not for what he thinks should be.”
You can choose the world’s vain philosophies, or you can choose God’s Good Will for you as He reveals it in The Bible, that is always truthful. The cure to ignorance, is knowledge and wisdom as found in The Bible in the way God revealed for people to follow.
One of the biggest mistakes people make, is to make decisions without God’s guidance.
Proverbs 28:26 states, “He who trusts in himself is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom is kept safe.”
1 John 1:5 says that “God is Light and in Him is no darkness at all.” The absence of God, Who is Light, brings darkness and causes the absence of God’s Truth and Wisdom in one’s life.
God ordered Adam not to and eat fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. God was giving Adam a free-will choice. He wanted him to choose life rather than what would separate him from God. At a later time in history, God gave the Israelites a similar choice when He brought them out of Egypt. “I have set before your life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore, choose life so that both you and your descendants may live.” Deuteronomy 30:19
Personal daily decisions, not our position in life, determines personal destiny. The many small choices that are made in life, truly decides each person’s destiny. Choices decide destiny – not chance or fate.
Even if you have made choices so far that are not leading you into the destiny God wants for you, God has the ability to transform your self-made mess into His Good destiny for your life as you surrender to Him and ask Him to guide you in making your choices. As you choose to make wise decisions based on Biblical Truth and Wisdom, you will discover God’s Good plan for your eternal destiny.
The Lord God of eternity knows you intricately and truly desires for you to have a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 states, “I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
Ephesians 2:10 states “For we are God’s masterpiece, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which He prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”
Our present good choices prepare us for eternal living free from evil. God wants His redeemed people to practice on earth the things they will be doing for eternity that fulfills their personal destiny. This is what brings God pleasure and joy; and as well, fulfills God’s Good destiny He created for each person’s life.
Daily choices establish destiny! The choice is still yours! How will you choose?
