What man is he that feareth the Lord? Him shall He teach in the way that He shall choose. Psalm 25:12
You are free to choose. You are not free, however, not to choose. After you make a choice, your choice chooses for you.
There are always consequences for your choices. Always. If you choose to step off the roof of a ten-story building, you are not then free to choose the consequence of your choice. Your choice has chosen for you.
God's will is for your welfare as well as for His glory. God's will is what you would choose for yourself if you had enough sense to choose it. Don't be afraid of the will of God. The will of God will never lead you where the grace of God cannot keep you.
What if you make a bad choice? What is God’s reaction? First, He is in control. Your choices will not take Him by surprise. Thanks to God, He can prevail over our bad choices to restore us into fellowship with Himself!
Have you made a choice in your past that has brought you consequences reverberating even today? Share this insight with someone who is younger in the faith than you.
