We can choose Strength
The best news is that we can choose the kind of life we want to live. In Deuteronomy 30:19 it says, "Behold I set before you this day life and death, blessing and cursing. Therefore choose life so that you and your seed can live, by loving the Lord your God, by obeying His voice, and boy holding fast to Him;"
Every decision you make is either moving you closer to life and blessing or death and cursing. The Lord has given us a free will, the power to choose life. He will also allow us not to choose life, but the Word encourages us to CHOOSE LIFE!!! Oh the power of our free will! No matter what circumstances may be happening, we have a choice what our future is like. God has a perfect future planned for us, but He does not force us to choose it. He has given us the power to choose His ways, choose life. We choose to love. We choose to forgive. We choose to receive God's love and free gift of forgiveness. We choose to renew our minds with God's Word daily. We choose to make time in the secret place to pray to our Father. We choose joy. We choose obedience. We choose to be a blessing to others.
Regarding strength, we can choose a life of being strong in God. We can choose to obey God in the areas that the Word declares will cause us to be strong. He is the Strength of our life, we can choose Him or choose to stay weak. Every day we can choose to Come to Him, Call upon Him, Worship Him, run to Him, abide in Him, Follow Him, Stay in the Word, stay in Prayer, choose Joy, wait upon Him, forgive others, learn to guard our words, forgive others, walk in Love, repent of sin, obey the leading of the Holy Spirit, choose to trust in Him, not be overwhelmed with anxiety because of circumstances.
