The Right Choice

“The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it” (I Thessalonians 5:24, NIV).

Is there something in your life that you know is not good for you–something that is tearing your life into shreds? You know the Lord wishes you to make a decision to turn away from it. You know He wishes you to let it go. You have felt His conviction, but have ignored it. Some days His conviction has been stronger, but other days you have willingly shut out His voice. 

The Lord longs to have an intimate relationship with you, but this issue stands in the way. At this moment you again face the choice to let it go. Do you believe that after you make the right choice you will not have the strength to do it? God doesn’t expect you to have the strength to conquer this alone. He gives you the strength to follow through with the right choice for your life. He meets your decision with His power. Don't ever forget that where sin increases His grace increases more. His grace is stronger and more powerful than any struggle in your life.

Each day that you make the right choice–each day you surrender to God's will builds hope and confidence to overcome. Surrendering your will is a powerful choice. Once you have surrendered there is nothing standing between you and God. Allowing Him to have access to your life brings the greatest reward, and gives you the strength and power to stand against anything that would try to destroy it. If you make the right choice daily, you shall daily receive His grace that is sufficient to carry you. 

Are you tired of your struggle? Are you tired of the load? You can make the right choice. You can walk away from whatever has claimed and controlled you. There is freedom in letting go and trusting God. The miracle of His strength is found in your surrender to His will. The Lord who calls you to make the right choice for your life is faithful, and will provide all you need to overcome that which destroys you. Make the right choice, and just let it go.
