Devotionals for Daily Living
The Lord watches over all who love him, but all the wicked he will destroy.
(Psalms 145:20 (NIV))
It is said that your life is defined by your choices!
Think about that in context to the following and see if you don’t agree.
Who you date and who you marry.
If you go to school and where you go to school.
The things that you love to do and the things that you do to earn a living.
How you see the world and how the world sees you.
If you have children or if you don’t.
If you got that promotion or if you quit your job.
I could go on and on about the choices that we all face and how each choice impacts our life far beyond what we could possibly imagine at that moment. Think about the choices that you have made in your life. Your life, as it is, is a direct result of your choices with each choice taking you down a path that is completely different from the one if you had only chosen differently. With that in mind, it is often said that life is a journey. You never truly know where you will go in life until you are there. Some people try to control that journey by making choices that they feel are the ones that will lead to wealth and power only find themselves alone and miserable. Others will make choices in life based on friendship and love only to find themselves surrounded by people who love them deeply no matter what they may have of value in this world.
I realize that I have avoided the biggest choice that anyone can make in this life, and that is the choice you make about the Lord.
To put it simply, the choice you make about who you say He is will impact you for all eternity. He is waiting with open arms to embrace you and to show you such grace and mercy, but you have to accept it. You have to claim it. You have to love the truth and love the Lord. You have to proclaim it! If this is your choice, then the Lord will watch over you. Sadly, you must be prepared for horrible consequences if you do not, for we are told what will happen to all who do not profess that Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords and their personal Lord and Savior!
What does the Lord do with you?
