Joshua 24:15 NIV
But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”
Which way do I go? What decision should I make? What is right or wrong? How do I know?
So many questions. So many decisions to be made. There is one place to find all the answers. I know that my next statement might seem like a general one. But I pray that it becomes more than that for you…. “Every answer you will ever need is in the word of God”…. Again, I know how it sounds. Yet I am telling you what life in and of itself has taught me.
I stopped choosing to look at this phrase/sentence/answer as just a way for a man to get me to read the bible. I started to view it as God’s love letter to me. I know that sounds like another cliché. But what if you chose to believe it too? What if you chose to believe that God loves you and that He left this book here on earth so that you would know how much He loves you and so that you would know the way?
The reality of shifting from being a cliché to being your truth is one simple decision; the decision to choose. Choose this day whom you will serve? I cannot tell you who to serve; nor can I force you to serve God. But what I can do, I have done and that is to choose this way for my household. Now we are not perfect and oh how glad I am that perfection is not a requirement. But this decision is. What will your choice be?
