Every Minute You Have A Choice

"And the Spirit gives us desires that are opposite from what the sinful nature desires." Galatians 5:17

Everyday God allows you to rise, He also allows you to rise and choose. 

You have the option to choose joy, love, peace, patience, calmness, kindness, health and fulfillment. 

It's a daily choice, rather it's a minute by minute choice. Either way God allows you the option to choose. 

More times than not, we choose to complain rather than be thankful. We choose to feel defeated rather than rise up and fight. We choose to be grumpy rather than kind. We choose self over others. We choose laziness over hard work and health. We choose bitterness over forgiveness. 

It seems easier to choose those things, because the other takes work, commitment, dedication, faithfulness and trust in God to give us the strength to overcome our flesh. 

But in reality grumpiness, laziness, selfishness, poor health, bitterness and complaining are a lot more work and a lot harder on our bodies.

They deplete us of energy, they require constant attention, and they fill us with sickness. 

Everyday you have to decide for yourself what you will choose. No one can decide  for you or do it for you. God gave you and me the ability to choose to be active, to be strong, courageous, confident and victorious. 

It's true we will never be able to choose wisely on our own, not will our own human effort accomplish these things on its own. 

But our spirit, which is willing is also able!!

"It is the Spirit who gives eternal life. Human effort accomplishes nothing." John 6:63

Choose the power of the Spirit which will enable you to choose life and all it's blessings. 

What choices will you make today?
