How do you choose?
May 17, 2010
By faith Moses, when he was grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter…
The choices you and I make in life can make us or break us. It's true. Our decisions affect our lives and destinies.
We see this truth clearly depicted in the life of Moses. By God's plan, Moses was raised in the household of Pharaoh, but was cared for and trained in the things of faith by his birth mother. He lived for the first forty years of his life this way, experiencing unimaginable advantages as a prince of Egypt.
But in spite of his privileged upbringing, Moses knew he was different from other Egyptians. All that he had learned about God at his mother's knee confirmed within him that he was a Hebrew. He identified with their plight and pain. And he began to sense that God was going to use him to deliver the Israelites from over 400 years of oppression and slavery.
So Moses made the bold choice to identify with God and his people. And that choice changed his life, and the world, forever!
So what choices are before you today? Listen! The choices we make can change everything in our lives! And the choices you make day after day create and shape your character.
Be bold! Choose according to your faith in God and based on your identity in him!
THE CHOICES WE MAKE CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING IN OUR LIVES!
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
