A Clear Choice

Choose daily to serve the God of Heaven and no other (Jos 24:14,15). #ChooseJesus #NoOtherGodsBeforeMe https://www.bible.com/116/jos.24.14-15.nlt

MORNING WATCH NOTES:

Day 40 of 40 days of prayer for family and friends. Lord, may my friends and family always choose to serve God alone.

In Joshua Chap 24, Joshua recounts the many ways that God, not idols made of their own hands and minds, delivered Israel from Egypt, lead them through the Red Sea on dry ground, delivered them from the hands of enemy kings and gave them a land flowing with milk and honey. The Lord God of Heaven did all that.

Joshua then asks, in essence, in light of all the evidence for God, why on earth would you choose the idols of the pagan nations that God destroyed? The choice is clear. He says, “As for me and my house, we will serve the lord God of Israel.” Lord when I consider all the battles you have won for me, all the provisions you have made on my behalf, the choice is clear…I choose to serve you.

One thought on “A Clear Choice

  1. Deanne’s choice:

    I’d rather have precious Jesus than silver or gold I’d rather be His than have riches untold I’d rather have precious Jesus than houses or lands I’d rather be led by His nail pierced hand Then to be a king of a vast domain and be held in sin’s dread sway I’d rather have precious Jesus than anything this world affords today

    He’s fairer than lilies of rarest bloom He’s sweeter than honey from out of the comb He’s all that my hungry spirit needs I’d rather have precious Jesus and let Him lead Than to be the king of a vast domain or be held in sin’s dread sway

    I’d rather have precious Jesus than anything this world affords today I’d rather have precious Jesus than men’s applause I’d rather be faithful to His dear cause I’d rather have precious Jesus than world wide fame I’d rather be true to His holy Name Than to be a king of a vast domain or be held in sin’s dread sway I’d rather have precious Jesus than anything this world affords today

    I’d rather have precious Jesus, I’d rather have Jesus, just give me Jesus Precious Jesus
