12 Days To Perfect Love - Choose Life Or Death

“Now listen! Today I am giving you a choice between life and death, between prosperity and disaster. For I command you this day to love the LORD your God and to keep his commands, decrees, and regulations by walking in his ways. If you do this, you will live and multiply, and the LORD your God will bless you and the land you are about to enter and occupy.
— Deut. 30:15-16

 


Darkness and light cannot live in the same place. Just like the flickering of a candle drives away the darkness out of a room so it is with God and the devil. The two cannot stay in the same place. SO which one is it? Is it life or death? Is it joy or depression? Is it truth or a lie? Is it fear or faith? You will have to choose one or the other. ONE OR THE OTHER. You can’t have one foot in faith and one in fear. God gives you the choice and He cannot force you to choose the better way.

We have to make daily decisions to protect the light inside of us. When darkness comes knocking on our door we have the opportunity to leave him there or open it up. When pain comes into our body we can take authority over it or succumb to it. When thoughts of fear start to creep in we can put a halt to it with God’s Word or allow them to fester until they take root. You must choose!

Faith is the opposite of fear. The Bible says in Hebrews 11:6, “And it is impossible to please God without faith.” If faith is the only thing that can please God, what does fear do? Fear will cause you to doubt. When you doubt God, you doubt His integrity. When you doubt the Word’s integrity, you insult God and make the Word inactive in your life. It’s of the upmost importance for you to understand how terrible being connected to fear is. Cut the ties you have with the devil and get rid of fear once and for all.


Prayer and Confession:

“Father, I thank you that your life and light reside within me. It obliterates the darkness and expels all evil. Thank you that if You are for me, who can be against me? I choose life. I choose truth. I choose joy. I choose light. Today, I shun the devil from every part of my being. I will be connected to you and only you. Thank you for empowering me with your truth and life. You are a wonderful God and I’m so happy to serve you. Thank you for your overwhelming victory in my life! Thank you for making MORE THAN A CONQUEROR! In Jesus name!”

Do Something:

Review your life and see if there are any strings attaching you to the devil. Cut them out! If it's habits, people or TV shows, do away with anything that connects you with darkness.
