January 1

And Elijah came to all the people, and said, "How long will you falter between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow
Him; but if Baal, follow him." But the people answered him not a word.
1 Kings 18:21

Do you ever find yourself faltering between two opinions? Have you ever felt torn between decisions and not sure of
what to do? Maybe we get torn sometimes because we are focusing more on the what, than on the Who. Whether we
want to admit it, everything comes down to a choice. We must choose between who, what and how most everyday of
our lives. The Bible makes it clear that we are to choose whom we will follow. There really is no middle road.

The problem lies in the fact that we do not like to think of ourselves as choosing to follow a false god, like Baal. But
when we turn from following the Lord, we are turning to follow something else. We get caught up in life’s activities and
look for God when we need Him. Did we just choose those activities over the Lord? Probably so. How do we make sure
that we choose God first in everything? We must make the Lord our priority everyday. We must start our day with Him,
praying about our schedules, asking for His guidance, reading His word for instruction, and worshiping Him with grateful
hearts. We must learn to practice these things everyday.

If we put these actions into practice, then we will find ourselves following God, no fences and no faltering. God knows
our hearts and He wants us to want Him more than anything else. He wants us to stop choosing the what in our lives
and start choosing the Who, Jesus Christ. Start your day with the Lord and ask Him to guide you. Beware of choosing
to serve the false gods of the world. The Lord will help you if you just ask Him.
