Because we are human, it is easy for us to let our choices be ruled by our emotions or to become impatient with God’s timing. Many times we are even tempted to compromise what we believe in just because it feels good. It takes tremendous courage to choose what is right. But that’s the great thing about it—God can give us all the courage we need for those important choices! Because we are new creations in Christ, those old ways of thinking don’t have a hold on us anymore. We are free to choose for Him! You can choose the people you’re going to associate with, the things you feed into your mind—and how you see yourself. The choices you’re making right now will determine the kind of person you’ll be, so ask God today to help you make the right choices, especially those that take courage to make.
