Your Choice, Your Destiny

Key Verse

“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live” (Deuteronomy 30:19).

Text — Deuteronomy 30:15-20


People are quick to trace the woes of human race to the choice that Eve and Adam made in the Garden of Eden, and rightly so. However, we all are still faced with choices that can either make or mar us in time and eternity. In our text, God lays the cards bare, shows us the consequences of our choices, and then advises us to make the right choice that can lead to life eternal. According to Jim Elliot, “God always gives His best to those who leave the choice with him.”

Those who are obedient to God can always find Him helping in making the right choice for a great destiny. A case in point is that of Ruth (Ruth 1:14-19). Her mother-in-law, had dissuaded her and Orpah from following her to Israel, because of uncertain future. Orpah reconsidered the situation and went back to her people in Moab. But Ruth’s choice to go with Naomi, unite with her people, and serve her God was irrevocable. She was blessed. So, consider entrusting all your decision-making into the hands of God and watch Him establish you eternally.
