On The Brink - Day 1


This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against youthat I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him.

Deuteronomy 30:19-20a

Before the people of Israel entered the Promised Land, Moses required them to choose how they would respond to God. He explained that the choice between life and death was clear: loving God meant life, while turning away from him meant death. God wanted to bless them, prosper them, and give them a good life, but it was their choice.

Today, we still need to courageously confront the choice between life and death, blessings and curses. Blessings are not automatic. Blessings come when we respond affirmatively to the Lord’s call to live obediently. God wants to lead us into a land that flows with milk and honey, BUT that's not the only option. This can go down in one of two ways. Will we choose the blessing or the curse? Life or death? Good or evil? 

Today, start your day in prayer, inviting God to lead you and guide you in every decision you make. Ask him to direct your ways and he will guide you along the path that leads to life! We choose the path based on the decisions we make. The choice is yours -- choose life!
