Topic: The Choice Is Yours [TREM Devotional 16 September 2020]
“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:” Deuteronomy 30:19 (KJV)
During the temptation of Jesus, He consistently spoke the Word. He was showing us that He was feeding from the Word also. When Satan came against Him, He knew where to hold unto in order to stand.
The choice is yours! You can choose what to hold on to in the midst of the shaking. The bible says “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: That thou mayest love the Lord thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days:”(KJV).
In other words, God is saying the choice is yours. If you want to enjoy the good of the land, you have to make the right choice. There is a curse! There is a blessing! And He says choose life so that you and your descendants may live to enjoy what He has put in the land. The bible goes further to say that you should show your love to God by being obedient to His voice.
The shaking is on, but God doesn’t want you to go with the shaking. Rather, He wants you to rise above the shaking. If you choose what you want rather than obeying Him, then the shaking will take you.
In every shaking there are those who are lifted and there are those who fall. The will of God is that no matter the shaking the believer will be lifted. It is your choice! The glory is already available, but it is not for every person. It is for those who are building according to pattern and specification.
