Choice

TODAY’S VERSE
May all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you!
Psalms 70:4 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
You have a choice. I learned this long ago. I was deep in depression and a new book came out. It was called, “Happiness Is A Choice.” I remember how liberating that title was. Could I really choose happiness? David made that choice. He constantly laments and then follows with a choice to trust and praise God. In one incident he writes, “I sink in deep mire, where there is no foothold; I have come into deep waters, and the flood sweeps over me. I am weary with my crying out; my throat is parched. My eyes grow dim with waiting for my God.” A few verses later he writes, “But as for me, my prayer is to you, O LORD. At an acceptable time, O God, in the abundance of your steadfast love answer me in your saving faithfulness.” David had a choice. His situation was bad, his depression heavy but he chose to trust in God’s steadfast love, faithfulness and timing. You can choose the same thing. Choose today to seek God’s love and faithfulness so you can rejoice and be glad in Him.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, You know my situation. You know my thoughts and feelings. Today I choose to thank You for Your stedfast love and faithfulness toward me. Today I choose to seek You. Help me rejoice and be glad in you.
AMEN

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
