Choosing His Ways

Every day we’re faced with choices that affect our lives. These choices are often between the things of Jesus and the things of the world. It can be tempting to choose the things of the world, because often times they seem more appealing or easier, but we must remember that the things of Jesus have a value that goes beyond our understanding.

In Matthew 6:33, Jesus says, “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” This verse reminds us that when we choose the ways of Jesus and seek His kingdom above all else, He will provide for us and ultimately bless us.

When we choose the ways of Jesus over the ways of the world, we experience His blessings. Psalm 1:1-3 says, “Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—whatever they do prospers.”

This passage reminds us that when we choose to delight in the ways of Jesus and meditate on His Word, we will experience His wonderful blessings and grow in Him. Now the reality is, choosing the ways of Jesus over the ways of the world is not easy, but I’ve discovered that it’s worth it. 

Lord, help us to choose Your ways, to obey Your commands, and let us experience the fullness of joy that comes from following You.
