MY CHOICE-GOD'S RESPONSIBILITY?

By Peace Wobo
All the doors look similar but if I am to buy one, anyone I pick would be my choice.
Let's consider the following questions as we proceed.
  1. Who should be held responsible for my choices in life? 
  2. Can God deliver me from my choices or from the consequences of my wrong choices? 
  3. Can God make choices for me? 
I am totally responsible for my choices in life. 
Yes! God, in His infinite mercy can deliver me from my wrong choices and it's consequences but not without me paying the price and not without me surrendering to His will and letting go.
He can make choices for me if I make the choice of trusting Him to the point of letting Him make choices for me.
Do you know that you are the proof of all the choices you have ever made? I know someone will talk about external forces, yes there are external forces but 90% falls back to your choices.
One power God made totally available to man;  is the Power of Choice. 
Stay Tuned!

In Joshua 24:15 The LORD through Joshua gave the people the opportunity to make a choice of whom they will serve "And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord". 

You see that God gave man the power to make choice of whom they will serve and that is why you see that some people serve idols, cows, snakes, trees, furniture and anything you can think of, some also choose not to believe in Jesus Christ as the only way to the Father. Our Choices define us.



You are totally responsible for the choices you make, not God, not your family or friends. Yes! We might be influenced to make some choices we never wanted to but at the end of it all, we made the choice. You cannot be so irresponsible to blame anybody for the choices you have made and please know that your choice will always affect others negatively or positively. That's why God will not be held responsible for as many that are perishing, who have chosen not to believe in Jesus Christ, going to hell is a choice just as making heaven is a choice. Receiving Jesus is a choice as well as rejecting Him.
People have made wrong marriage choices and died in that choice. One wrong choice you should never make is wrong marriage choice.


God cannot deliver you from your choices and from it's consequences for as long as you see nothing wrong in the choices you have made. He can only come in when you admit that you've made a wrong choice and ask for mercy.



God does not make choice for anybody, He only makes choice for those who trust Him to make their choice. Choice is strictly an individual's responsibility. Choice to life and death is in your tongue "Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof" Proverbs 18:21. If God has given you the power over life and death what more could be morethan this? For everything we do in life is tied to Life and Death.

Man is a dynamic being, having come in the form of a god. Infact, God called humans god. We have a body, a soul and a spirit which makes us a triune like God. He gave our body the most dynamic Energy to work with in the name of human brain. God himself cannot influence what we do with our brains, that is why the holy Bible is our guide. You are the choice you make, don't blame God for your decision. Your choice, your life, use your brain.

succinctly stated @Mr Adeniyi
Thanks so much
God created us in His image and His likeness and part of the characteristics of God is the power of choice. We are unarguably responsible for our choices.
