There have been many of us during our Christian walk that have attempted to make our own way, direct our own path and do things in our lives the way we see it. However, many of us have also found out that doing things the way we see it, has made a mess of our lives as well. The good news is, God never meant for us to direct our own path, he never meant for us to have a choice, other than, choosing him.
Choice only came after Adam ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. God told Adam to eat of every tree in the garden, except the tree in the midst of the garden. Therefore had Adam obeyed what God said, we wouldn’t be choosing who we are going to serve…whether God or Satan. That’s why (Jeremiah 10:23) says “Oh Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps”. It is the Holy Spirit that is supposed to be leading and guiding us.
In fact, (Psalms 32:8) says, “I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way that though shall go: I will guide thee with mine eye”. As you meditate on this thought, let’s give back to God the only “choice”…if you will, that he gave us in the beginning…and that was choosing life and life more abundantly.
God Bless You
