The choice

Posted on Posted in Choice, Trust

                                                                … is yours!

      That Tree ‘O’ me
      … what’s my choice going to be?

When Adam and Eve faced that tree,
… they had to make a choice.
The result we know!

      We all have ‘a tree’ in our lives,
      … situations that confront us,
      and choices to make that affect our future.

      What is your choice?
      But even more importantly,
      … what are you basing your choice on?

Jesus had to make a choice
… when He was tempted by satan in the wilderness,
about His future and what He was going to do in life!
What was His choice?

      But He answered and said, “It is written,
      ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but
      by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.‘”
      Matt 4 4

Jesus’ choice was not to react to what confronted Him,
… nor to make a decision according to His need,
But He made His choice based on God’s Word,
… trusting in God’s provision,
accepting what God said of Himself …

      So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
      It shall not return to Me void,
      But it shall accomplish what I please,
      And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
      Isa 55 11
