Choices

Do you have a choice?  Each day you and I walk through life assuming we have choices.  We choose what to wear, what to eat, what to read, what to listen to.  But what if we had no choices.  What if we gave up our right to chose.  Would that make life easier, less stressful, more a place of peace?  Or not.

As Christians, each one of us, at some point gave our life to Christ.  We professed our need for a savior and committed to live life to glorify Him at the expense of our own desires.  In other words, we gave up our right to chose.  Our decisions turned from satisfying ourselves, to glorifying our savior.

Now I am not saying this applies to all areas of our life.....but maybe it does.  At times I believe God cares what we wear, what we eat, what we read and what we listen to.  To put God first is to make Him Lord of All. 

Yes this is inconvenient.  Yes this is difficult.  Yes this is at times is even radical.  But it is also necessary.  God wants, encouraging and demands obedience in all things.  This is how we show our love.  But with this obedience comes the peace of knowing that God's way is always the best for His people.

From time to time I counsel individuals dealing with addiction.  These wonderful people battle every day with the decision to give in to their obsession or battle it.  But many times by appreciating the absence of a choice the battle becomes less of a struggle.

I pray that each day I will recognize my choices our not mine anymore.
