Stepping Stones: Your Call…Whose Instruction Book?

Stepping Stones: Your Call…Whose Instruction Book?
May 29, 2010 Lighthouse Network

Transformational Tip

God loves us so much that he gives us the freedom to make choices. Some are of little consequence, but others are life-changing. This freedom of choice dates back to Adam and Eve. They made a one choice that went against God’s instruction book and sin entered the realm of mankind.

The freedom to make choices brings responsibility. We have all made poor choices at times and have suffered the consequences of those bad choices. The good news is that no matter what poor choices we may have made in the past, there is always hope for a better future. God knew that we would make some bad choices, but He loves us so much that He sent Jesus and Jesus willingly, His free will choice, paid the price for our sin to provide a way to restore our relationship with God.

Some people go through life carrying the load of some wrong choices they’ve made in the past. They believe they’ve messed up so badly that nothing good can ever come of their lives. Do you ever feel this way? Good news! If you want to be set free from the past, Jesus is the answer. He has already paid the price for your sin … for every wrong choice you’ve ever made.

Make a good decision now and accept His payment for your sin. God has always wanted to forgive you and help you make better choices from now on. That is why He sent His son, gives us the Holy Spirit to guide and empower us, and spells it all out in His instruction book, The Holy Bible.

It’s up to us…what decision are we going to make? To follow the greatest instruction book of all time, or to continually choose to write and follow our own very flawed instruction book. I

Today, remember, you are very special to God. He loves you no matter what you’ve done. He’s there for you. He wants you to put the past behind so that you can become all that He has designed you to be. It’s never to late to make good decisions. Learn from your mistakes…and look forward to a future filled with hope.

Prayer
Dear Father God, thank you for forgiving my sins. I’ve made so many wrong choices. Help me now to put them behind and to look forward to the future you have planned for me …one filled with hope… I pray this and all prayers in the name of the One who has secured my future, Jesus Christ; and all God’s children say – AMEN!

The Truth
No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.
Philippians 3:13-14
