Romans 8: 31-33 (GNT)
“In view of all this, what can we say? If God is for us, who can be against us? Certainly not God, Who did not even keep back His own Son, but offered Him for us all! He gave us His Son—will He not also freely give us all things? Who will accuse God’s chosen people? God himself declares them not guilty!”
“THEY SHALL SURELY GATHER…”
BIBLE REFERENCE: ISAIAH 54:14-17
Let it be known to every bible believing Christian that we’re not exempted from evil gang-ups; the fact that you have chosen the path of righteousness puts you in direct conflict with the devil and his cohorts, therefore ‘they shall surely gather together against you’.
Nevertheless, we have a divine assurance that any unholy gang-up or congregation against us shall utterly fail; their weapons shall not function against us and their wicked plans shall be their downfall. This is the word of God, all we have to do is believe, speak it over our lives and we shall see His performance. Hallelujah.
Isaiah 41: 11 (AMP)
“Behold, all they who are enraged and inflamed against you shall be put to shame and confounded; they who strive against you shall be as nothing and shall perish.”
1 Corinthians 1: 27-29 (GNT)
“God purposely chose what the world considers nonsense in order to shame the wise, and He chose what the world considers weak in order to shame the powerful. He chose what the world looks down on and despises and thinks is nothing, in order to destroy what the world thinks is important. This means that no one can boast in God’s presence.”
BIBLE REFERENCE: DEUTERONOMY 30:14-19
Choice involves mentally making a decision from a set of options; it has to do with selecting or picking based on preference. This is what the Holy Spirit is using this medium to tell us today.The options are simple- life or death.I urge you to make that decision right away and choose life.
‘I am the Way and the Truth and the Life’, this was Christ speaking in John 14:6, imploring us to choose life that we may live. Beloved, today is the day you make that decision, abandon the ways of the world- choose life, choose Christ for in Him we live and have our being (Acts 17:28). Remember this: God is not an option, God is the option. Shalom.
Joshua 24: 15
” And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
Matthew 23: 12
“And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.”
“WATCH WHAT YOU DO”
BIBLE REFERENCE: GALATIANS 6:7-10
I read somewhere that we should watch the things we think about because those thoughts soon become actions; this is so true and I dare add this,’that we must watch the words we speak because they are seeds which when spoken have the capacity to grow into enormous trees and hence produce fruits accordingly’.
In the same vein, we are being instructed through the bible reference to be watchful because whatever we sow, we must surely reap; I strongly believe no one wants to reap a bounty of evil. Then we must therefore seek to do good at every given opportunity. May the Lord help us achieve this as we make this new commitment.
Proverbs 26:27 (AMP)
“Whoever digs a pit [for another man’s feet] shall fall into it himself, and he who rolls a stone [up a height to do mischief], it will return upon him.”
Titus 3:9 ( GOD’S WORD® )
“Avoid foolish controversies, arguments about genealogies, quarrels, and fights about Moses’ Teachings. This is useless and worthless.”
