Deuteronomy 30:19 (NASB) I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So, choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants,
Some came easy, others were hard. Carolyn, my wife, and I sat and prayed. We pray regarding every decision we make. Some of the choices are easy while others are very difficult to make, but one thing we always held firm on was to find the peace of Christ in those decisions. Today's verse speaks of the choice between life and death, between the blessing and the curse. There were times when we didn't want to make the decision but knew it had to be made: like leaving a church family, deciding to go against the grain when everyone else was going one way, or choosing to discipline our children when it wasn't easy. Those choices were choices about living, but the choice spoken of in today's verse is speaking of eternity. The choice between living with God or not for all eternity. So, whether it's a living choice or a life choice be sure to spend some time in prayer. Seek His peace above all. Some decisions will still be easy and others hard, but you will have a peace the world will not understand to make the right decision.
