Choose This Day Whom You Will Follow

Joshua 24:15

256

Joshua, 24:15 [AMP]

 If it is unacceptable in your sight 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 live; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

In 2007 I was permanently injured. After that, I became very angry at the world and depressed for several years. In 2010 I was retired and permanently disabled. After some close friends repeatedly invited me to church and then to fellowships of listening to messages about who God is and His grace, I came to a crossroad; I either had to believe His promises or not. That day I chose to believe and stand on His promises (Joshua 24:15). 

The doctors told me that I’d be lucky to walk and would be in a wheelchair within 10 years if not sooner… Since the day I chose to believe God I haven’t been sick a day since, I have coached baseball, I ride bicycles and hike regularly. That was over 8 years ago!

Not by anything I did. Not by any special prayer I prayed. Because I simply chose to believe Him. 

Praise God for His goodness and faithfulness, even when I’m not…

Thought For The Week

We all follow someone, so choose for yourself this day whom you will follow. If you choose to follow God believe Him, trust in Him, rely on Him. He is faithful!
