Decisions, Decisions

Charles Stanley recently wrote:

Every believer must choose whether he will live by the principle of obedience or follow his preferences. When a person commits to doing the Lord’s will, then every situation and decision is sifted through the standard of “God said it, so I’m going to do it—and that’s the end of it.” He may complain, weep, or try to argue. But in the end he will be obedient, no matter what.

Indeed each of us must choose who we will serve! Far too many of us simply move along as nothing is happening in our world. But my friends, the “Battle Lines” have been drawn distinctly! We no longer need to wonder which is the “correct” path.

But, as Stanley continued the write:

Our lives are about fulfilling God’s purpose. Many people miss His awesome plan for them because they choose to follow their preferences. Obedience is sometimes hard, but the struggle and sacrifice are worth it. There is joy and peace for the believer who pleases the Lord and lives by His principles

What are you going to decide? Obedience and submission, or rebellion and “going your own way”?
