Receive by the Hand of Faith – It’s Your Choice!
I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.
Some folks agree with every problem that comes along: “Oh, I’m sick. I’m broke. I’m defeated. I’m discouraged. I’m depressed. Nothing ever goes right for me.”
Some people constantly talk the blues, believe the blues, and get the blues. Then they wonder why God doesn’t—and cannot—help them. The truth is, if it were up to God we’d never have a problem. The Bible says He has already given us all things that pertain to life and godliness. (2 Peter 1:3.) He has already redeemed us from sickness, disease, poverty, lack, failure, and fear. Yet, God left the matter of whether or not we walk in these redemptive blessings in our hands.
In Deuteronomy 30:19, He said, “I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life.”
God doesn’t force anything on us. God already provided His best for us when He purchased everything we’d ever need that pertains to life and godliness. He made it available and then said, “If you want it, you can have it—just come and take it by faith.” Faith is the hand that receives from God. When we choose to reach out and take hold of God’s blessings by faith, we become overcomers in this world, walking in the fullness of His blessings.
