The Will to Choose Right
A few weeks back God placed it in my spirit to start a series called “Heaven or Hell?” He gave me some insight on how the people need to understand there’s a choice that we have to make; whether we live holy and righteous before Him or live evil and wicked on the earth.
He put Cain in my spirit and reminded me of how He called for righteousness from the beginning of time. God asked Cain a question right before Cain killed his brother Abel, “If you do right, will you not be accepted?” God told Cain sin was crouching at the door but he must rule over it and what did Cain do? He in his [freewill] chose to close his ears to the voice of God and acted wickedly before God. This evil act caused God to curse Cain forever in the land.
Many people are trying to figure out which way to go. Should they hold on to what they know is right or let their guard down possibly allowing for the enemy to take them off the path of righteousness to walk like the wicked? God doesn’t want us to choose evil. He wants us to choose life. God doesn’t want to curse us. He wants to bless us.
Throughout this series God had me speak about eternal life [inheritance for the righteous] and eternal damnation [the suffering of the wicked]. God continually went back to “freewill”. He constantly put it in my spirit that this is a choice that we have to make as an individual.
Truth? Many people are following the crowd and living in the moment causing them to drop the ball on what is right before God but God wants us to break free from the crowd and approach Him as an individual. He’s calling us to be separated from the other voices [the enemy] so that we can hear His voice clearly; so that we can be judged as holy and righteous.
Are you willing to separate yourself from the crowd?
Are you willing to allow the righteousness of God to rule and reign in your spirit no matter what? The enemy is raging but we don’t have to look like him. We don’t have to act like him. We are created in the image of God, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Let’s walk away from evil. Let’s rule over the sin that is waiting for us day in and out. Let us look like our Father in Heaven so that we would have nothing in common with the enemy. Choose life and not death. Choose righteousness over wickedness.
And if we are careful to obey all this law before the Lord our God, as he has commanded us, that will be our righteousness.”
