“You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence
and the pleasures of living with you forever.” Psalm 16:11 NLT
To live the life that God has given to you will take ENERGY! It takes purposeful activity. It takes intentionality. It takes alertness and awareness. It takes a whole-hearted devotion to God. My friend, nothing else will do.
This is your life. Whether 30 years, 50 years, 70 or 100 years—God has allotted to you a specific amount of time on this earth to become who He has called you to be and to accomplish what He has planned for you. And, how we live this life will determine where we will spend eternity. The life that courses through your body right now is the breath of God. This is God’s gift to you; what you do with this life is your gift to God.
Why should we live counterfeit lives, lives that are marked by fear, anxiety and worry, lived to please others and to maintain a specific image? Why not live the authentic life that Jesus Christ died to give to us? Why not go all in and pursue that God-kind of life? Why not love God and enjoy the joy that His presence brings? May we honour and celebrate the life that He has given to us and determine in our hearts to live the abundant life—the life He has designed for us.
