You’ve been given absolute power to choose the life you want

Choose the life you want

Can you really choose the life you want? According to the Word of God, you sure can! Long before Jesus came God gave man the opportunity to choose life or death, between a good life and a bad one. A life of blessings against a life that is not of blessings. The first covenant God made after His people had left the land of Egypt, was at Mount Sinai (commonly known by the 10 commandments).

The second time, God made a covenant with the children of Israel through His servant at the time Moses when they were approaching the promised land (land of prosperity and good life). In this Second Covenant, He wanted His people to prosper and it was an addition to the first covenant.

The Bible says; “These are the terms of the covenant the Lord commanded Moses to make with the Israelites while they were in the land of Moab, in addition to the covenant he had made with them at Mount Sinai.” Deuteronomy 29:1-2.

Most people don’t know that God wants them to prosper His way. This was established thousands of years, long before Jesus set foot on earth.

How to choose the life you want

The Bible says; “Now listen! Today I am giving you a choice between life and death, between prosperity and disaster. For I command you this day to love the Lord your God and to keep his commands, decrees, and regulations by walking in His ways. If you do this, you will live and multiply, and the Lord your God will bless you and the land (promised land) you are about to enter and occupy.” Deuteronomy 30:15-16

You are the master of your own destiny. Given this willpower means that the life you are living today is determined by the choice you have made, and the ones you will make henceforth. You have to understand that not every failure comes from the devil, some of it is you.

He says He has given you a choice between life and death. Blessing and disaster. He so wishes that we choose life. To choose the blessing. He has given you that power. He so wishes that you choose life because He wants you to succeed beyond your greatest dreams.

That means your failures are not on God’s calendar for your life. Though they may happen, they are not his ultimate plan for you. So they can not remain permanent. His permanent solution for your life is a prosperous and blessed life. Can you imagine that God wants you to be rich in all areas of your life? As if His wishes were not enough, heaven delights in your prosperous life.

How do you make this choice? The word of God says; “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants (future generations) might live! You can make this choice by loving the Lord your God, obeying Him and committing yourself firmly to Him.

This is the key to your life. And if you love and obey the Lord , you will live long in the land the Lord swore to give your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”Deuteronomy 30:19-20

The word of God says that the covenant of blessing is the key to your life. If you choose life your blessings are guaranteed. If you choose otherwise, you will be in a disaster. It’s black and white.
This covenant the Lord did not only make with the people back then but also for the future generations. He had you and me in Mind. We are that FUTURE GENERATION.

The Bibles says; “But you are not the only ones (meaning the children of Israel) with whom I am making this covenant with its curses. I am making this covenant both with you who stand here today in the presence of the Lord our God, and also with the future generations who are not standing here today. Deuteronomy 29:14‭-‬15 NLT

God made this Covenant with His people (anybody who worships Him only) long before Jesus Came. So if this was the case, your prosperity was guaranteed thousands of years ago. Why should you live in death, lack and problems? Why should you live accursed? It’s not necessary because you can choose life.

Now just imagine what life is like after Jesus came, died for the whole world and was resurrected. Life is even more glorious. Jesus, Himself said
“The thief cometh to steal, kill and destroy but I come that they might have life and have it more abundantly.” John 10:10

You have the power to choose the life you want, daily. Whether to live in lack, poverty, and sickness or in riches, prosperity, and health. There is much for you to enjoy in Christ, and that includes a prosperous life.

“Listen! I, the Lord, am giving you a choice between the way that leads to life and the way that leads to death.” Jeremiah 21:8. Your destiny lies within the choices you make every day. What you decided yesterday has decided your today, and what you decide today will decide your tomorrow.

God is giving you a choice every day that you live to choose the way that leads to life against the way that leads to death. And that choice is yours.That way is found in Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ only.

Every day is a choice.When Jesus came, He had something profound to say about the life He came to give each and every human being on earth.“The thief (the devil), comes not but to steal kill and destroy, I am come that they might have life and have it more abundantly” John 10:10

In the opening verse, Jeremiah was telling the people of Jerusalem what the spirit of the Lord was saying about their destiny, in that they were given a choice to continue sinning and worshipping idols or to choose to obey God and follow His commands. When Jesus Christ came, He said there is a way that leads to life, and a way that leads to death John 10:10.

Later, He told them who life was. What Jeremiah said, Jesus also said; “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life; no one goes to the Father except by me.” John 14:6.

Jesus Christ is the way that leads to life. In this life there is abundance. It is God’s number one desire for every man and woman on earth to enjoy life and have a great destiny. The power of both lies in the choice you make for your life every day.

If your life isn’t where you want it to be you can change it by the choice you make to follow the Lord. Regardless of what it may be, it can be changed, and that change can only happen in Jesus Christ because He is the way, the truth, and the life.

In order for you to have perpetual life and have it more abundantly, you have to choose His way and not yours. And live life His way and not yours. This will be the only way that you can enjoy life on this earth. By choosing His way daily, you are guaranteed not only life but a life in abundance.
