choose you this day – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

choose you this day whom ye will serve;”

The choice that affects our eternal residence.  The most important choice, we will ever make.  To serve God or self.  (Joshua 24:15)

It’s our other choices, the little things, that cause us daily grief or give us peace and joy.

I wonder how the choices we made today will affect our tomorrow. 

Choices I made just after finding Christ, (35+ years ago), are the root of my concerns today.

Pauls confession from Romans 9:1-2, could be my own today.

I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost,   That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart.”

He was concerned over Isreal, who had not understood that Christ had redeemed them from the law of sin and death.

My concern is more personal.  “The sin that so easily besets me.”

A tiny thing, secretly holding on to something that displeaed my Lord and Savior. 

Such a small thing, who  thought it would be:  “a root of bitterness springing up to trouble, and thereby defile; – and it also laid upon me hard bondage:

This little thing, all grown up, and choking the life, joy, peace and hope out of me.

Saints, don’t let the little foxes, “the little foxes, that spoil the vines:”  grow up to steal your victory. 

When the Lord delivers you, DO NOT HOLD ON TO ANYTHING…   Give it up to God, let Him have it.  You really do not need it, it will hurt you in the end.

choose you this day

Choose to give your all to the Lord, choose to follow Him.  Let Him have it all now, life will be better in the future.

2 Corinthians 1:10
King James Version (KJV)
Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us;”

He will continue to love and deliver us, as long as we are willing.  He can deliver us totally at the first, if we allow Him.  Over time, if He must.

He promises to keep us blameless.

1 Corinthians 1:8
Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless

in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Lord… help….
