Your choices have an immediate and profound effect on your life!! We must choose to believe what God says about us rather than the other voices we hear!!
"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 KJV)
If you initially and consistently choose Life and Blessing you can expect God to pour His Favor out on you. This choice will be tested by the system that is a byproduct of the choice that Adam and Eve made in the garden. For instance, if your body gets sick, you will have to choose to believe that you are "healed by the stripes of Jesus"! (Isaiah 53:5) If you balance your checkbook and it's in overdraft, you will have to choose that God loves you so much that He will honor your choice to give into His Kingdom that He will "supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus"! (Philippians 4:19) Since we are programmed to figure out a way to make it work somehow, we often fail at standing on the "Promises of God" because it's so foreign to our human nature. Our human nature functions in the natural but God functions in the Supernatural!! He can do above and beyond anything we can "ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us". (Ephesians 3:20). Regardless of what we are faced with, God has a promise for whatever trial we may face and nothing is impossible with God!! The Word of God builds our Faith so we must read the Word on a consistent basis. David said that he hid the Word of God in his heart!! If your Bible is collecting dust then I would imagine that your spiritual life is dry and dusty also. God will pour water on him that is thirsty, He can turn a desert into standing water!! Choose to Believe the Word of God over the other voices in your life today and God will Bless you with His Favor!!
