KEY VERSE: “There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back anything from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?” (Genesis 39: 9).
On daily basis, each one of us makes choices: some may be routine and trivial while others may be very crucial to our earthly peace and joy and where we spend eternity. According to John L. Mason, “A fruitful life is not the result of chance. It is the result of right choices.” Each time you choose righteousness rather than committing sin, you are honouring God. As seen from the life of Joseph, the devil would spare no effort in making you commit sin. However, he cannot force you against your will.
In Ruth 1: 6-18, Ruth chose to return with her mother-in-law to Bethlehem of Judah, even when the picture before her was gloomy. It turned out to be a most glorious decision of her life- because she chose to be with the people of God. When you look away from the unpleasant prevailing circumstances and follow the Lord Jesus, you are honouring God, and He will stand by you always. Caleb and Joshua chose to walk by faith while the majority of the spies chose to walk by sight and God honoured then before all Israel.
Challenge: How God-honouring are your choices?
Prayer: Help me Lord, not to offend you by my choices.
