Choice, Control and Communion


Our choices have consequences. A bad choice leads to undesirable results while a good choice leads to a pleasurable outcome. When it is a matter of choice, you are given an option to choose one way or the other, and your decision matters.

Right from the time, man was fashioned in the image of God and placed in the garden of Eden, man had a choice; a free will to choose, for God did not intend to be a dictator. The Bible says that there are multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision (Joel 3:14) and of all the choices, one makes, the most significant and impactful of all is the choice of Control and Communion. The first man, Adam chose to be in control (desiring to be godlike), a fatal disobedience that led to his losing of the communion he had with God. The last Adam (Jesus Christ) chose to give up his control (though being God, he considered it robbery to be equal with God) and he is now in communion with God the Father, seated at the right hand of God the Father. In other words, those who choose to be in control lose their communion with God while those who let God be in control of their lives gain their communion with God.

Points to ponder:
So the choice today is yours! Do you want to be in control of your life or do you want to let go and let God be in control of your life? Your communion with God depends on the choice you make. Let go and let God.

Joel 3:14 (KJV)
14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.

Luke 17:33 (KJV)
33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.

Proverbs 3:5-7 (KJV)
5
 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.
Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
