“See, I have set before thee this day life and good, death and evil;” (Deuteronomy 30:15 KJV)
As believers, we must function with the understanding that God has left us in charge here on earth. Therefore we have responsibility over this earth. All he did was to tell us how to be effective and function over this earth. The problem, however, is that people don’t want to take responsibility. As long as you will not take responsibility for what he has given to you, don’t blame him if it is not working in your life. One of the greatest gifts that God gave to us is that of choice. It is the devil that forces you to do what you don’t want. God does not force you.
Deuteronomy 30:19 says: I call heaven and earth to witness against you that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing. Then he said I love you so much that I won’t just ask you to pick and choose like in a lucky dip. I will tell you to choose life so that you and your descendants may live. But the devil will force, push and harass you until you make the wrong choice.
God respects your choice and so he says you should willingly decide what you like and that is the area many of us don’t like. We want him to do everything but he says no, I don’t function that way. In the book of Mark 9:23, Jesus said “If thou canst believe…….” That puts a responsibility of choice on us. You have a choice about whose report you believe. Is it the report of God or the report of your environment and circumstances? The choice is yours. Always pay attention to your part of the promise. As a new testament believer, your part is to believe and receive what Grace has provided for you.
Beloved, you have the victory. Nothing can hinder you or garage you. God has made you a king over the situation that you are faced with. Believe it and you shall see the manifestation!
