The Lord didn’t ask us to choose between prosperity and poverty. He asked us to choose life or death. Ever since Adam and Eve were walking with the Lord in the Garden of Eden, God asked man to choose life. He knows this is hard for us. He knew Adam and Eve’s choice would open the door for sin in the world, which would make that choice even harder for us. However, He remedied the situation and made it easy. Now, if we simply choose Jesus, we choose LIFE and He gives it wholeheartedly and eternally, filled with blessing and abundance!
“Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!” (Deuteronomy 30:19; NLT)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- God says the issue of life is one of the most important choices we can make. Stop and think about that for a minute.
- Pray for our nation that we will be able to trust God enough to choose life, then believe He will bless our nation.
- Intercede for states with “life” laws coming before their legislators this year. Research if one of those states are yours. Heartbeat bills, selective abortion bills, and bills to stop late-term abortions are all on the table this year. More than ever before! Call forth decisions for life in our legislatures!
- Thank Him for sending Jesus to save us and to give us the opportunity to choose Him, the source of Life and that abundantly!
A prayer you can pray:
Father, all I hear about on the news is what candidates say they can do for the economy, and there are so many possible solutions! You said, however, that life is the issue that is the most important. You show us that if we choose life, You will pour out prosperity and blessings on us as a nation, even as You did for Israel. Well, I choose life, Lord! And, I pray that You would touch the hearts of Believers that they will vote for life, as well! Thank you, Jesus! Amen.
I choose life for my household, my state, and my nation!
