We are given the choice each day to be sad or glad. We choose whether we live or die. This choice is not based upon the circumstances, the weather, or even how we feel. It is made before we get out of bed. It is made with our mouth.
In Deuteronomy 30:19 God makes it clear that it is our choice. “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live;” Then in Proverbs we are told that, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”
What’s on your menu today? Will you declare, “I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord?” (Proverbs 118:7) Will you choose life?
Blessings on your day!
