“Make the Right Choice”

Proverbs 4:14-15   Do not enter the path of the wicked, and do not walk in the way of the evil.  15 Avoid it; do not go on it;  turn away from it and pass on.  (ESV)

Are you making the right choices in your life ??  I am here to tell you, that if you haven’t trusted the Lord with all of your heart, mind, soul, and strength…then you are NOT going to make the choices in your life that will bring you to an everlasting, eternal hope in glory…  Hope that is only provided to God’s redeemed, “born again” children…   [See P.S. below]

This opening scripture was penned by Solomon, King David’s son…  Solomon was given wisdom by God, when Solomon prayed to the Lord for the ability to take over his father David’s kingdom, in…1 Kings 3:9-14…  [https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1kg3%3A9-14&version=ESV]

Solomon’s wisdom surpassed everyone, both before and after Solomon’s life…1 Kings 3:12…  Don’t you think we should take the advice from the wisest man there ever was ??  Unfortunately, we were born with a natural sin nature, ever since Adam and Eve fell prey to Satan, in the Garden of Eden… You can read about man’s fall here, in…Genesis 3:1-7…  [https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=gen+3%3A1-7%2C+&version=ESV]

The Bible tells us our hearts are deceitful, above all things, in…

Jeremiah 17:9The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?  (ESV)

If we can’t trust our deceitful heart…who can we trust ??  Take a look at this most important scripture, also penned by the wise Solomon, in…

Proverbs 3:5-6…  Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding  In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.  (ESV)

Only God is capable of helping us avoid all the traps and snares of Satan, and the lure of all things that we desire, and are unable to resist in our own carnal flesh…  The apostle John tells us about these sinful desires, in…

1 John 2:15-16…  Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world.  (ESV)

Satan is so much more cunning and smarter than we will ever be, because he disguises himself as an angel of light, as seen in…2 Corinthians 11:14-15…  But we CAN keep Satan at bay, by submitting our lives to God…  We see this penned by the apostle James, in…

James 4:7-8…  Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from youDraw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.  (ESV)

And how does one submit their lives to God ??  This scripture above tells us to…Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts”…   This is accomplished by our hearing, (or reading about), and understanding with ears to hear (or eyes see) the gospel of Jesus Christ…  The word “gospel” means “good news”…  Yes Jesus shed His blood on the cross at Calvary, to cleanse away the sins of those who seek Jesus Christ to become their personal Lord, Savior, and Master…by understanding, and obeying the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ…  [See P.S. below for a gospel presentation]

“Born again” believers are indwelt by God with a lifelong, built in Helper…the Holy Spirit…  If we are continuously listening for guidance from, and obeying the urging of the Holy Spirit…will be filled with the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 5:18-20; and thereby be able to walk in and by the power of the Holy Spirit, as penned by the apostle Paul, in…

Galatians 5:16…   But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.  (ESV)

Friends, I have given you God’s Word with this scripture above, that is filled with promises that can absolutely change your life…  But you have to seek the Lord while He may still be found, as penned by the prophet Isaiah, in…Isaiah 55:6-7…  Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near;  let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.”  (ESV)

Through the power of the Holy Spirit that God gives to every redeemed child, you WILL be urged to…“not enter the path of the wicked”…  You WILL be urged to…not walk in the way of the evil”…  You WILL  be able to resist the path of evil so as to… “turn away from it and pass on.”  But you have to … “Make the Right Choice”

 

Gracious God and heavenly Father…I pray that You give every reader the eyes to see the truth of Your Word, that fills this post with nothing but hope and promises that You will never break…  I pray now in the precious name of Your Son Jesus Christ…that You will change hearts and minds now…that will forever be secure in knowing that You have reserved a room for them in Your mansion, when they pass on from this life… (John 14:1-4)…  I pray for You to change lives now, in the blink of an eye, in the name of Jesus Christ, and for His sake…Amen…

Blessings in Christ,  bruce
