Just like we didn’t earn our salvation, we don’t earn our right standing before God – Jesus did that for us (2 Corinthians 5:21). But, to have a better, Joy filled, prosperous life, then we do it God’s way. If we don’t, we position ourselves to invite an endless cycle of unnecessary difficulties into our lives. Just remember God doesn’t do that to us; He wants only the best for us, but He does give us the freedom to choose His way or our own. And, whenever we’re ready to live our lives surrendered to Him, He’s already set us up to reap all of the benefits of living a God-life. Choose Life. The benefits are abundantly beyond what we can, ask, think, or even imagine (Ephesians 3:20).

Deuteronomy‬ ‭30:6, 9, 19-20‬ “And the Lord your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your offspring, so that you will love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, that you may live.

The Lord your God will make you abundantly prosperous in all the work of your hand, in the fruit of your womb and in the fruit of your cattle and in the fruit of your ground. For the Lord will again take delight in prospering you, as he took delight in your fathers…

I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live, loving the Lord your God, obeying his voice and holding fast to him, for he is your life and length of days, that you may dwell in the land that the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.””
