CHOOSE LIFE! – Deuteronomy 30:19 Devotional

Deuteronomy 30:19

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.”

Over the years we have been subjected to advertising blitzes that promised life. If we would purchase what they were selling we would, in essence, receive life. It was almost like the children’s program offers that mimicked adult objects would deliver real life replicas.

In the adult world there is even more advertising campaigns that promise life and happiness. The sad reality is that often those who promote these products often are the most miserable and needy people. Their own products fail to give them the life they portend to deliver  – – for a price!

Moses shouts out across the ages of time the truth in today’s passage. This is the true and faithful life that is everlasting. This is the life that lives in the flames of suffering and adversity.

I thank God that those of us who have received Jesus Christ as our personal Savior have passed from death to life. When the Lord dispatches His angels to escort us to paradise we will already have received eternal life! Thank you Lord!

Blessings dear hearts. Draw near to God today, trust Him completely and be a blessing!
