I realized while meditating on this blog post that virtually at all times when we take decisions, we end up choosing between God and another thing, it amazed me that I found it very difficult to think of a decision that would not clearly involve God.
It’s so amazing that most of us are more comfortable picking other options ahead of God without any slightest feeling of remorse.
God holds the key to our lives and He has the right to unlock or to lock just any aspect of it. We also need to understand that there’s “no me without Him”. Just in a twinkle of an eye, our lives can go to rest at ones.
Life is a privilege and the earlier we understand this, the better for us.
All through scriptures, we read about situations were men had to choose between God and themselves or even others.
One thing about this is that the choices we make, goes a long way to validating th level of our love for God.
Think about Abraham who was put the test to ascertain whether he loved God or Isaac more. But thank God he survived the test.
Remember the man Daniel and even his three friends who put to the test to see whether they love God more than food.
Job was also tested, Christ also, Joseph, Isaac, Jacob, Peter and many others were all tested.
Saul was tested as recorded in 1 Samuel 13:5-11 and again in 1 Samuel 15:1-35 but unfortunately he failed on both occasions, preferring to please the people instead of making his stance for God uncompromising.
The story of king Saul is a typical example of how most of us live, we put our reputation, friends, family, desires and dream ahead of God.
If you were in God’s shoes, how would you feel? Remember, He said of Himself, “I am a jealous God”.
I just want to use this medium to ask everyone of us to always put God’s will ahead before any other feeling whatsoever, anything, anybody, anywhere, any job or any wealth.
If only you stand out for God, you are sure to have him stand for you, and back you up so that no one can confront you or break your backbone.
