I call Heaven and Earth to witness against you today: I place before you Life and Death, Blessing and Curse. Choose life so that you and your children will live. And love God, your God, listening obediently to him, firmly embracing him. Oh yes, he is life itself, a long life settled on the soil that God, your God promised to give your ancestors, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
When you think about the life you are living, do you consider that it is your choice? Or, is life some random fate that has been handed to you, and it's not that good? Are the days full of vibrancy, or just the same boring routine that slowly brings you to a spiraling halt?
I've felt both ways in my life. I've walked around "living" like I was choosing death. It's taken practice for me to believe that life is good, full of blessings, hope, and strength. There have been so many battles inside my head that pointed towards death; it was hard to believe in the good life. But, as I've confronted the lies that I have believed about life, my life has had more and more breakthroughs.
When I choose to believe that God is good and that He desires good for my life, I feel blessed. Even when there are struggles with various avenues in my life, my choices of belief impact my prosperity. Prosperity emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually are all rooted in my beliefs.
What about you? Are you believing lies about who God is and who he created you to be? Are you choosing life over death, blessings over curses? Have you asked God today to envelop you in His Life?
I've read about people that are suffering greatly, but hold fast to the belief that God is for them and loves them; this belief has given them riches beyond any other. This is Kingdom riches.
What are you believing and choosing today?
