"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 you and your seed may live" (Deut. 30:19).
A number of years ago I heard a certain doctor say words that described what he saw when he looked at the test's that were done on my body. "You have a tumor that has engulfed your kidney, and you have renal cancer. The cancer is leaving the tumor and is going into other organs, so you are at stage 4, and you have about 2 months to live. Get your things in order".
I spent a few hours of that day experiencing such a grand array of demonic oppression, that I nearly took my own life.
I thank God for the Church on the earth. My wife called a christian buddy who spoke and taught faith, and immediately he came to me. That is,,, the Church,,, you see.
The words he spoke, though few, caused my spirit man to bring God's Words of LIFE (Deut. 30:19) to come up like a river out of my belly and flood my soul. Suddenly, ALL demonic oppression vanished!
The individual who learns to be led by the Spirit of God will rise to the top in life.
In order to shorten this great God story, I'll just tell you, at the end of the deal, the doctor from whom I got a second opinion (which was identical to the opinion of the first doctor) said "you are the man who said that you believed God, and the results here would be unto you, according to God's Word (Acts 27:25; Rom. 4:21). Well Sir, you have had a miracle. When I went in, the tumor that was the size of a football had shrunk to the size of, smaller than a tennis ball and had a SCAR on it. The results of the pathology report is UNREMARKABLE. The cancer that WAS in your other organs is gone". March 15th, 2020 marked 14 years since that death sentence. I'd say God's Word is a SURE THING.
When The Word of God rose up in me, I knew my WI! LL - glorify God in my body. I knew - it's MY choice!"
You see, God doesn't just choose who will be successful in life. He is no respecter of persons.
He doesn't have favorites. He doesn't pick some to receive His blessings and others to miss out. He isn't one who is moody, in a good mood on some days and in a bad mood on other days. God is the SAME, He NEVER CHANGES.
It is up to us whether or not we rise to the top in life. We are free moral agents. We can live mediocre lives, scraping the bottom of the barrel, or we can rise to the top.
God commands men to choose life by choosing His grace and means of entering into eternal life. This choice cancels death and the curse that will cut us off from Him. Men can and must make the choice, for God does not force the will of anyone to serve Him, surrender to Him, or remain obedient to His will. All men, always and without exception, are free to choose life or death, blessings or curses.
I've made the decision that I will (IT'S MY WILL, nobody else's) to make a choice of LIFE. Live victorious! Not in MY life, but IN CHRIST (Acts 17:28)!
As I live unto Him, and glorify Him in my life, then He is magnified in the earth again as He was when He walked here, only His magnification is exemplified through me as I choose to please Him (John 14:12,20).
Through His death, burial, and resurrection, Jesus purchased for us " all things that pertain unto life and godliness" (2 Peter 1:3). The work is already done; it's already purchased and paid for. The benefits belong to the Believer, but we have to choose to partake of them.
Will you walk in the blessings of God? The choice is yours. So follow God's counsel in Deuteronomy 30:19: "Therefore choose life, choose blessings".
Scripture: ...! for I believe God that it will be just as it was told me (Acts 27:25).
and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform (Rom. 4:21)
for in Him we live and move and have our being.... 'For we are also His offspring' (Act 17:28).
"Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father (John 14:12).
At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you (John 14:20).
Confess: I choose life, blessing, healing, and health.
I choose to believe the Word of God and rise to the top in life!
