Have you received some bad news?
Lost some money? Lost your job?
Have some of your things got stolen?
Is your body sending you some negative signals?
Flu, pain or worse … the doctor gave you a bad report?
Like reading the newspaper or watching the news on television …
… you have a choice!
Keep on reading, keep on listening … or turn it off!
Are you going to keep listening to that report?
Are you going to believe what you see, hear or what you feel?
Adam and Eve were faced with a similar choice …
But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden,
God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it,
neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
— Gen 3:3-4
Whose word or whose report was true? … God’s or satan’s?
We also have the same choice set before us …
… as Jesus said …
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:
I am come that they might have life,
and that they might have it more abundantly.
— John 10:10
Jesus’ disciples made a choice ….
Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go?
thou hast the words of eternal life.
— John 6:68
What will you choose, and whom will you believe.
Whose report will you believe?
For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth,
to shew himself strong in the behalf of them
whose heart is perfect toward him.
— 2 Chr 16:9
