Free Will is a Multiple Choice

You know life would be so easy if the right choice was always handed to us on a golden platter. But it’s not always that easy. However God has given us the study guide of life, some will read it and get an A, while others will ignore it and fail. Of course, their are those who randomly guess, and pass, but not always. Why not be prepared? Why not study, and face life’s challenges with ease.

Today, I want you all to grab a bible and begin reading it from the beginning when God gave us a free will. It all began when God gave Adam & Eve, the choice. They were instructed to eat from any of the trees of the garden, but NOT the tree of knowledge. If they ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, they would die. What did they do? They succumbed to the temptation and ate from the forbidden tree, which guaranteed all humanity the right to choose between good and evil. They were tempted by the beauty of that tree of knowledge, very similar to the way we are tempted by many things here on earth. Sure, society may steer us in the direction they want us to go, but God dictates the ‘right’ way. Just because everyone is doing it, does not mean you should. That is not how this works. We will be tempted, we will face hard times and we will need GOD.

How rewarding is it when you study, and get an A. Well the bible is our study guide, and heaven is the prize. God gave us a free will, so now let’s use it to guarantee the A.

Some choices are not easy, but the answers can all be found in the bible. On Day 14, of the Thanksgiving challenge, let’s give thanks to God for our will to choose. Strive for the A and pass the test, because failing will not award you with a good outcome! But then again, you have the right to choose, so choose wisely.

What does the bible say about free will…

And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “You may surely eat of every tree of the garden, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die. – Genesis 2:16-17

The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps. – Proverbs 16:9

No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. – 1 Corinthians 10:13

Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one. But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death. Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers. – James 1:13-16

Let’s give thanks to God for our right to choose, because challenges make us stronger. Choose wisely – Amen

  1. So well said. We so often think the outcomes are totally in our control. It eases the burden to know it’s not. We can only pray, make choices, pray some more and WAIT!! Patience is a virtue; knowing you’ve done everything in YOUR human power
