(Living The Good Life Is A Choice You Make)
TO THE BIBLE: Ephesians 2:10 AMPC
“For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].”
It’s a God-given mandate that you live a great and glorious life here on earth. You’re not supposed to wait till you get to heaven before you do so. It’s your right to live in God’s goodness, health, and abundance now!
In truth, your life today turned out the way it did because of the choices you made in your past. In the same vein, your tomorrow is dependent on the choices you make today.
Some people who when going through terrible situations accept them as part of God’s undebatable plan. They think it’s God’s will for them, so they resign themselves to “fate.”
No! A thousand times no! He’s given you the responsibility to decide what life you’ll live.
I want you to know that the life of failure and defeat isn’t God’s plan for you, and neither is it His will. He’s given you the right to choose, either life and blessings or death and curses.
He did not plan anyone for failure, rather He wants you to prosper (3 John 1:2), and has made a way for you to have a great life.
The Lord Jesus has settled everything you require for the good life. This world we’re living in is full of both light and darkness, but you can choose to live fully in the light because life is a choice.
You can choose to be successful, happy and joyful every day in spite of persecution. You can live that life which Jesus already made perfect.
Refuse to live the downward life because you’re the King’s kid. It doesn’t matter what people say or think because they can’t make a difference.
The only two factors that can make that difference are you and the Lord. You have a choice to make, so choose right today.
Deuteronomy 30:15-19; Isaiah 1:19-20 TLB
Dear Father, I’m convinced that you called me to inherit a blessing, therefore, I choose this day to live in joy, success and prosperity according to your plans for me. I reject anything that is not consistent with your plans for me in Christ Jesus. Amen.
