Morning Prayer, Friday, August 17, 2018 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: ARE YOU IN CONTROL OF YOU?
Father God, in all that I do in this time You have given me on this earth, my prayer that I always put my full heart in it and do it all to Your glory. Amen
“Making choices is not always easy, but you always have a choice." One of the things I like to do is watch people's actions and reactions. Some of us are overly aggressive and what many would call pushy. Some of us are quiet and demure, which many see us as mild, meek, bashful and even timid. Some of us are over the top, and sometimes too far over. I hear people say, "Well, that is just the way I am." Now, there was a time when I thought they were right but the more I live on this earth, the more I read God's Word, and the more I learn, it is evident to me that we can control our behavior, our actions and our attitudes. In most cases, the way that we act, is a choice. When the Israelites decided to make the golden calf, they made a choice to do so. No one forced them. When David slept with Bathsheba, a married woman and later had her husband Uriah killed to try and cover up his actions, he had a choice. Even Jesus had a choice when he was faced with going to Calvary. He could have refused but he was more about doing the will of God. He didn't think twice about Calvary because his focus always was on doing the will of his Father. I think about my own life and wonder if I had thought more like Jesus, how many of my choices would have been different. Why, because I would have been more focused on pleasing my heavenly Father than doing what my flesh desired. So, I then would have made better choices.
For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believed in him would not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
