Choose Life – Deuteronomy 30:19

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Spirit, listen to your Father’s heart from His Word in Deuteronomy 30:19. “I have set
before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your
descendants may live.”

Be blessed in the name of the One who is life. Your Father is pleased that Jesus His Son lives in you and His Spirit makes His home in you. Choose the abundant life of Jesus in you. He will never cease living in you. God chose your spirit to be His dwelling place before He created the physical body to place you in. Be blessed to choose life, His life in you. Your life is secure in Him.

God pledges the full faith of His great name to you. His Word says in 1 Samuel 12:22,
“For the sake of his great name the Lord will not reject his people, because the Lord was
pleased to make you his own.” You have the pleasure of the Lord. He is pleased that you are
His. You belong to Him. You are precious in His sight. You are a divine choice. Celebrate your
chosenness. You are an expression of the embrace of the everlasting love of God. By His
grace, seize your opportunities every day to choose life, to be life, to give life. Choose against
what distracts you, confuses you, and puts in jeopardy the life of the Beloved in you. Choose
to live from the loving heart of your Father.

Spirit, be blessed in the encouragement that comes from being united with Christ.
Receive comfort from His love. Be blessed to choose fellowship with the Spirit. Bask in His
tenderness and compassion. Make His joy complete by receiving His unshakable purpose for
you in your Father (Phil. 2:1). You have not read the final chapter of His plans for you. He has
written a future and a hope for you. In Jeremiah 29:11 God says, “I know the plans I have
for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” This
verse was written to people who were exiled and captive in a foreign country for seventy
years. God kept His promise, and they returned to the land He gave them.

The pain you feel is real, your circumstances are what they are, but be blessed with
hope for your future in Him who chose your life. Choose to believe in hope that He who called
you is faithful. It is your choice. Spirit, be blessed with trusting His thoughts and plans for
welfare and peace, for your good and not for evil.

Be blessed in the name of the One who has life in Himself,
and His light is your life (John 1:4).
