Release Barabbas

Choice is part of human life.
The choices we make, either make us or destroy us.
We have choices...
Life  or death.
Truth or lie.
Good or bad.
Constructive or destructive.
Salvation or damnation.
If we choose life.. we shall live .
Deuteronomy 30:19 (NIV)
This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that 
I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. 
Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.

Our  choices are powerful!
They are the fuel that drives our actions
They are the template that our future is built on.
They are the helmet that we wear  to face risk.
The better our choices, the safer we are.
Proverbs 11:14 (KJV)
Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellers there is safety.

I have been thinking lately..why do we have so much havoc around us?
Why do so many bad news flock our media?
Why do we promote evil compare to righteousness?
..Bad one of the major reasons.
It happened in the time of Jesus Christ..
Barabbas..the notorious criminal .... was chosen over Christ Jesus.
We unleash evil when we make wrong choices.
That is the reason we have more crime today..
In 2014, our decision matters.
Good and right decision will put us on the wise side,
and  give us speed in all our endeavor.
To make good choices in 2014,
we need to have, know and live in Christ.....,
Proverbs 3:5-6 (KJV)
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

We need to acknowledge him as our father, comforter and saviour.
Then we are 100% sure that our decision will be right.
John 14:16  (KJV)
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, 
that he may abide with you for ever;

In 2014, we need to learn to go to God,
to  ask, listen and take counsel  before deciding.
James 1:5 (KJV)
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, 
and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

We should be patient,
and never make decision in haste.
Philippians 4:6-7 (NLT)
Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. 
Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 
Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. 
His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

It pays to wait on Him
1 John 5:14 (NIV)
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: 
that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

God knows all,
which is the reason we should ask before we making decision or take steps
Jeremiah 29:11 (KJV)
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, 
and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

He will tell us which way, and
 how to go.
Isaiah 30:21 (KJV)
And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, 
This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

Let your decision in 2014 be to Gods glory.
Choose wisely.

If you are blessed by any of the write-ups in this blog, do not forget to share it with others.
You can also share your testimonies with others  on this blog....your testimony will encourage  others..
Revelation 12:11
And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. 
And they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die

Remain blessed shalom.
