What must you and I do that God will not do for us? Answer: we must choose.
Joshua said, “Choose for yourself this day whom you will serve…but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Paul said, “live by the Spirit and you will not carry out the desires of the flesh.” Again our choice. Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes Him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned…” Our choice again.
All of creation is under compulsion…the caterpillar must become a butterfly; the chicken must lay an egg; only man has a choice of what he will be. Choice must have…well, …a choice. We cannot choose if there is only one thing to choose from. Example: Would you like a glass of water, a glass of water, or a glass of water?
We cannot choose heaven if there is no hell. We cannot choose a blessing if there is no curse, and we cannot choose single life if there is no married life. Or again we cannot choose to walk in the spirit if there is no flesh. So, how can we choose faith if there is no doubt?
Many believers are distraught when they see doubt creeping into their lives, but doubt must appear if there is to be a faith choice. God’s word tells us “Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we cannot see…and without faith it is impossible to please God.” (Hebrews 11:1, 6)
LIFE LESSON: “Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message and the message is heard through the Word of God.” (Romans 10:17) So in the future don’t be undone when you hear or see doubt creeping in. Move past it, push it aside on the way to a faith choice.
Doubt is the signal…that we must choose faith…
as the other option.
There is no doubt in this truth. Don’t hesitate, choose faith. And all of God’s people said, “Amen!”
