A friend of mine gave me the liberty to shop online for my birthday gift and I was so excited about it. ๐Ÿ˜€ I get to do what I love- shopping- and I also get what I love- a gift! I got right to it with such gusto as though it was a task that would earn me a pay check. I found my eyes straining as I had been glued to the screen for a little above 4 hours! Oh my! When did shopping get so hard? So many choices to select from. There were some Iโ€™d like but find out they were only available in smaller sizes ๐Ÿ˜ฆ While for some others I just couldnโ€™t find the colours of my choice amidst the vast options. If youโ€™re very selective as I am, you would go item by item, scrutinizing each product till your heart settles for the one- the right one. Sometimes โ€˜the oneโ€™ may just end up looking completely different upon delivery or it would not fit perfectly as it did on the model ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

So whatโ€™s it about choices? Why did God give us the will power to choose? Why doesnโ€™t he just make the choices for us?

I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live- Deut 30:19 (ESV)

Well, I think it makes us responsible for the consequences when we make the choices ourselves. If not, weโ€™d blame God in the end by saying something like Adam did;

The Man said, โ€œThe Woman you gave me as a companion, she gave me fruit from the tree, and, yes, I ate it.โ€- Gen 3:12 (MSG)

There would always be choices to make; what to wear? Who to marry? Where to school? What to study? Where to live? What to buy? And many more! But hey, donโ€™t despair, donโ€™t be confused, God still promises to guide and direct us while making choices. He gives clues to help us in making choices, for instance, โ€˜choose lifeโ€™.

As you go on through the week, remember to seek Godโ€™s opinion when making choices and listen for His response and you wonโ€™t regret it! ๐Ÿ˜€

And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, โ€œThis is the way, walk in it,โ€ when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left. โ€“Isaiah 30:21
