“And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” (Joshua 24:15)
Are you trying to live in two worlds? If so, then I know something about you. I know you’re not really happy inside. When you spend time around other Christians, you’re sometimes uncomfortable because of your sin. On the other hand, when you’re doing things you know you shouldn’t as a Christian, then you also have the conviction of that sin inside your heart.
I have the answer: Stop doing that stuff. Make your choice. As Joshua said to the Israelites, “Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve . . . But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:15).
Every one of us must make that decision. No one make it for you, and you definitely can’t make it for me.
Are you in a relationship that is dragging you down (see 2 Corinthians 6:14)? Are you doing things that are weakening your resolve? Stop doing those things.
I’m not saying it is easy. We all get tempted, and we all have a sinful nature. As Christians we all have a God who will give us the strength to do what He has called us to do.
It really comes down to this: Do you really want to change? If you do, then God will give you that resolve. When the Lord came to Moses and spoke to him through the burning bush, Moses basically said, “I can’t do this. I don’t know what to say. I stumble over my words.”
But later in Exodus we see him facing off with the most powerful man on the face of the earth. That is because God gave him the strength.
In the same way, God will give you the strength to do what you need to do. Don’t live in two worlds. Make a complete commitment to Jesus.
God will sustain us as we make a decision to give it over to Him. So today, try it. Give it to God. His shoulders are a lot bigger than yours and He is a loving and caring Father. Trust Him and He will see you through. Remember, He did it in the past and He will do it today and in the future.
“We have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. How we begin our day will frequently determine how we end it.”
Heavenly Father, I put my trust in You Lord and I know that today, You will get me through what I’m going through. Your living word has told me to cast my cares on You Lord and that’s what I’m going to do, trust and obey. Thank you for always being there for me. I love and Praise You. In Jesus’ Holy and Precious name, Amen.
