Choose Life!

today’s daily bible reading is Deuteronomy 30:1-20

“I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may living, loving the Lord your God, obeying his voice, and cleaving to him” Deuteronomy 30:19, 20

Today, I have thinking about the division in our hearts to between serving God and the world, between our loyalty to Jesus lead and our love of self. Those choices lead in either of two directions – towards life or towards death, towards greater growth in Jesus and in the things of the Spirit of God, or towards a diminishing and weakening of those things within us. We are not always aware that these are the options. It is not in the great issues that we are most likely to fail and fall, but in the small ones, in which we prefer self over God, put away the nudges the Holy Spirit is giving us, not heeding his warnings about things – these are the little decisions that make a lot of difference.

Today, if you hear His voice, cleave to Him and obey Him – in the little things! They are more important than you think!
