the power of acting without the constraint of necessity or fate; the ability to act at one’s own discretion.

God created us in his own image complete with the right and ability to choose what we want. Our salvation depends upon that freedom to choose.
Salvation is not salvation when you are forced to accept it when you don’t want it. At the same time if you are not given a chance to choose between salvation or not there is no hope or freedom.
Yet the greatest falsehood is that we really don’t have a choice. YOU have ALWAYS had a choice.
Man cannot take that choice away from you and neither can the devil, no one can. God won’t, and he will always abide by your choice.
If the cross could not stop Jesus, there is nothing that can stop him. He will Honor His Word and the Word of God every time and God does not change his mind.
Your greatest enemy is yourself and self-doubt. Once you understand that God is for you and has been since before you were born you will see the truth.
Romans 10:17 (NKJV) 17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
We need to hear the spoken word because it activates in our hearts, minds and in the earth.
Isaiah 55:11-13 (NKJV) 11 So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. 12 “For you shall go out with joy, And be led out with peace; The mountains and the hills Shall break forth into singing before you, And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. 13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree, And instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree; And it shall be to the LORD for a name, For an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”
The only thing holding you back is yourself, by your own doubt and choice. You must choose to change your life and when you do act upon that choice and change the direction that you are going. You can do that and the only thing that is stopping you is YOU.
If you sit there and don’t make a choice, you have made a choice to do nothing. If you keep claiming the negative in your life you have made a choice.
So don’t tell me that you can’t change, because it is your choice that got you where you are and it will be your choice that begins the change.
First thing you need is to change your words. Start speaking God’s word over your life. Start with the Psalm 23 and then let the Holy Spirit Lead you. I usually find Psalm 91, and from there the Lord directs your steps as to which way you should go.
So think about it, what is your next choice? Are you going to stop whining about your life and do something about it? Or are you going to sit there and do nothing?
