I have come to realize when we are faced with choices that even not choosing something is still choosing. That may sound a little like the whole “Who’s on first” with Abbott and Costello bit but when it comes to the choices God has placed before us it becomes a serious matter. It becomes a matter of life or death. Heaven or Hell. Living to the full or living in less than. It truly becomes the decisions that impact our entire lives and all of eternity.
I have found that when we CHOOSE Him to be our Savior, CHOOSE to seek God in prayer, CHOOSE to worship Him with full abandonment, CHOOSE to study His word…no CONSUME His Word, for the sole purpose of wanting Him to save us, to change us, to heal us…Knowing it must start with us first. Not our kids. Not our spouse. Not an audience. Just letting Him reveal in us what we must CHOOSE to surrender to Him, it changes EVERYTHING…because HE changes everything!
I am the only one I can choose surrender of. My will is the only one He gives me control over to release into His hands. I am the only one who can choose to let Him restore me. Redeem me. Revive everything that’s dead in me. Revival, my precious friend must start within ourselves first before we can impact the world around us.
I can share my story with the you and it may move you, inspire you or maybe even give you hope knowing if God could use me, He can definitely use you but God is the only One who has the power to transform your world like you’ve never dreamed possible. You need only CHOOSE to surrender your will for His. But please know that the truth is sweet friend, I have found Him to be the ultimate gentleman. Yes, He is pursuing you with a relentless love. He does love you fully, wholly and completely even though He knows your deepest, darkest secrets. He even paid in full the price for every sin you’ve ever committed and have yet to commit BUT He will not force Himself on you. He wants you to CHOOSE Him today. He wants you to fall in love with Him as deeply as He is in love with you. He wants to have a love affair with you.
Arms wide open, hands reaching out for Him…no pen in your hand…let go and let Him hold the pen in His hand. The Author who will write the most amazing love story you’ve ever read. He will write the story of your love for Him, His unconditional, never-failing love for you! That love story that has the power to impact The Kingdom for generation upon generation to come!!
Just call on His name…Jesus. His name is the only name that will live forever. His name is the only name that has the power to save! We are nothing without Him but can do anything He has called us to when we are filled by the Holy Spirit…the same power that raised Christ from the dead!! So let’s rise up and CHOOSE Him. Let’s rise up and CHOOSE to walk out, in faith, all He has and be a force that makes all of Hell tremble!! Let’s CHOOSE to believe we are an advertisement of who our Savior is! Let’s CHOOSE to reveal to the world that He is enough, even if…
“I pray that the light of God will illuminate the eyes of your imagination, flooding you with light, until you experience the full revelation of the hope of his calling—that is, the wealth of God’s glorious inheritances that he finds in us, his holy ones! I pray that you will continually experience the immeasurable greatness of God’s power made available to you through faith. Then your lives will be an advertisement of this immense power as it works through you! This is the mighty power that was released when God raised Christ from the dead and exalted him to the place of highest honor and supreme authority in the heavenly realm!”
-Ephesians 1:18-20 TPT
