“Look, today I have set before you life and death, depending on whether you obey or disobey. I have commanded you today to love the Lord your God and to follow his paths and to keep his laws, so that you will live and become a great nation, and so that the Lord your God will bless you and the land you are about to possess. But if your hearts turn away and you won’t listen—if you are drawn away to worship other gods— then I declare to you this day that you shall surely perish; you will not have a long, good life in the land you are going in to possess.
“I call heaven and earth to witness against you that today I have set before you life or death, blessing or curse. Oh, that you would choose life; that you and your children might live!

You will then be able to live safely in the land the Lord promised your ancestors, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”

Making Right Choices
Knowing God’s Word and taking wisdom from it gives you more options in decision making and provided you with the discernment needed to make healthy choices. A right decision is one that is consistent with the Word of God.
USE God’s Word to help you choose the path that will be pleasing to Him. And, even if you don’t always make the right choice, know that God has the power to make your choice turn out in your best interest;
We are assured and know that God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose. _Romans 8:28 (AMP)
