Two weeks ago, I talked about the many things outside of our control. Today I want to focus on what is within our control. We have many choices to make and the Bible tells us that there are natural consequences to our choices. Galatians 6:7-8 reminds us that fleshly choices bring what is bad. Choices made with the Holy Spirit’s help bring eternal good.
Bad choices come easily to our sin nature. However, we can have hope that God will take care of us and direct us towards good choices. We still need to allow God to lead. I think too often Christians assume they are doing what is right without allowing the Holy Spirit to lead. My friend, please make sure God is leading you.
Dear Heavenly Father, we struggle with the choices we do have. Please guide us to the right choices for Your honor and glory.
I pray this in Jesus name.
God is so good.
