Lift up your voice in prayer and thank The Lord for all He has done.
Pray: Lord, give me an encounter that would turn my life around. Give me a testimony that would be a stamp of your goodness upon my life.
Joshua 24:13-15 (KJV)
“I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:”
Deuteronomy 30:19 (KJV)
God wants to challenge us with this teaching, giving a call for us to put our lives in order. (Psalms 119:133)
Decisions (not location, time, gender, age) decide destiny.
Your decisions, more than your conditions will determine the quality of your life eventually.
Every decision is connected to consequences: a corresponding outcome.
Poverty, failure, death in many regards, and a life of pain are consequences of decisions made.
Everyone is living in the reality of certain consequences as a result of the decisions they make.
WHAT IT MEANS TO CHOOSE LIFE:
1. To choose means that you have to be aware of other options that are available alongside the outcomes they create.
We are not given the power to choose consequences. Most consequences are already connected by default to decisions.
You are not able to choose until there are many available options. Most Believers are unable to make quality choices because they’re not aware of the other available options.
The very idea of choosing means that you are at liberty and there are many other possibilities.
WHAT IT MEANS TO CHOOSE LIFE:
2. To choose life means to conclude on a path to follow after careful examination of the various outcomes or consequences your decisions can produce.
Choices and decisions are pathways, they always lead somewhere.
Every time you are making a decision or choice, it results in motion. From the moment you begin making choices, you’ve decided to leave somewhere to become either better or worse. Our choices can cause us to move in a certain direction (good or bad).
Prolonged indecision is permitting circumstances to choose for you. For example, a farmer who decides to leave his field unplanted does not absolve the growth of weeds.
It is dangerous to allow circumstances to choose for you. It will always be to your detriment.
It takes making decisions to rise in life, it also takes making decisions to fall or fail in life.
Curses and enchantment work principally by influencing or manipulating you into making wrong choices or decisions so that your outcomes become predictably bad.
One of the ways to be free from curses and enchantments is not just by conducting deliverance, it happens by introducing superior paradigms that influence or guide your thinking, causing you to make good decisions.
Curses and enchantments don’t work arbitrarily. They depend on the corporation of your will.
You can know what spirit is influencing you by the decisions you’re making and the outcomes that follow.
The real value of wisdom is in its ability to help you make superior, destiny-advancing decisions.
The real value of wisdom is in its ability to influence you to make quality decisions.
Your conditions can be great, but your decisions can superimpose a good condition to produce negative outcomes if you make poor choices or decisions.
You are where you are as a reflection of the decisions and the choices you have made.
Your real deliverance begins the day you admit that you are where you are currently, because of the decisions you have made in your life.
Repackaging destruction in packages that seem pleasant does not change its harmful effect.
It is your responsibility to make great choices so that your outcomes can be great.
Excuses and offenses are Satan’s weapons of mass destruction.
One way the devil distracts and robs one of the ability to make quality choices is through excuses and offense.
If God, The Father of all spirits, respects your choice, every other spirit must respect your choice.
Even God knocks to access your heart at the point of salvation.
Everything God gave humans, he gave them control over.
No prophetic word will veto your ability to choose. (Deuteronomy 28:1 KJV)
Anything God gave you, He gave you the power to control.
Your choices will influence the outcome of your life and destiny, more than your prayer life.
Your choices will influence your life more than your prayer life
Philippians 2:12 KJV, Hebrews 12:2 KJV
Many believers pray as a ritual but do not align their hearts to make destiny-defining decisions that would produce great outcomes.
You can pray and make a wrong choice after praying. Your wrong choice or decision can veto (overrule or annul) your prayer.
You can change the outcome of your life in a way that affects your offspring.
If you came from a family with negative outcomes, you can reprogram your life through quality choices, so that your children will not be victims of the same negative outcomes.
The world is full of commentators who are making comments of those brave enough to make strategic decisions, whilst the commentators themselves are choosing nothing and static.
The world does not reward commentators but rewards those bold enough to make a good choice and take action to change the outcomes of their lives.
If you do not have biological parents (references) that depict the outcome you desire in life, find a leader who embodies the reality you currently desire and model your choices after theirs.
To reinvent yourself means to “follow them who through faith and patience inherit the promises”, by obtaining serious constructive definite knowledge. (Hebrews 6:12)
Refusal to grow is a decision, God and life can respect it, but you will live with the unpleasant consequences.
Fruitfulness is a direct product of growth. If you do not grow, you cannot be fruitful.
There is no growth without fruitfulness. Fruitfulness is a product of growth.
Success is not what you seek. Success is what you attract by who you’re becoming.
Transiting into superior versions of yourself will attract specific possibilities and opportunities into your life. Luke 2:52 KJV
As a Believer, if you don’t grow spiritually, certain possibilities in the Scriptures may never become your reality.
There is a level of capacity you must carry to command certain results in the Kingdom.
The previous year will look like the upcoming year if you do not understand the power of choices and decisions.
If you don’t understand the power of choices and decisions, your years will all look the same and unchanging, regardless of the prophetic words you encounter, hear, or receive.
Whatever has kept you down, in the name of Jesus, I pray for you, that you will begin to make constructive choices!
Decisions are powerful. The power to endure circumstances comes from making conscious decisions. Daniel 1:8 (KJV)
Many downplay the power of choice, such as choosing to be equipped before you access certain territories. You ought to tarry till you’re endued with power from on high.
You may not have the power to change your life or current reality, but you can consciously agree with God and what He has said in His Word to create a change.
When you become really serious, when you avoid excuses and make up your mind to find a way out of your current challenges, situations will align and you’ll receive the grace that will help you birth change.
Your choices are decisions backed up by the action to pay the price.
The secret to effective ministry goes beyond holiness and integrity; it involves carrying genuine power that solves people’s problems.
Certain virtues, having rested upon you, make a profound impact, catching the attention of even the powers in hell.
To Preachers; the end-time army needs to carry and execute genuine power. Don’t ignore but rather invest in spiritual power.
KOINONIA will never go down. We’re standing on a covenant heavily backed up by the jealousy of God.
Tonight’s sermon is a charge to provoke you to make specific decisions or choices that will change your life for good, regardless of the path you are currently on.
You can change your life if you are serious about it.
As a Minister of the gospel, you must be willing to contend for genuine power and grow to specific heights, to truly bless people.
SEVEN (7) DESTINY-DEFINING DECISIONS THAT YOU MUST MAKE:
1. The decision to know The Lord and serve Him all the days of your life. Matthew 22:37 KJV
2. The decision to contend for a superior belief system. Proverbs 23:7 KJV
This is a decision to step out of limiting and mediocre belief systems.
3. The decision to live a life of purpose and meaning. Hebrews 10:7 KJV
It is wasteful to just exist. Purpose beautifies your life.
4. The decision to contend for health and longevity.
The value of longevity is that there is strength. Declare boldly, that I will live strong and live long
5. The decision to be financially or economically empowered.
Lack and want do not glorify God, neither are they His ultimate design for the Believer. It is our heritage in Christ to not be in lack and want. (Psalm 23:1 KJV, John 10:10b KJV)
6. The decision to build strategic destiny relationships.
You must have people of value and standards around you. There are friends that stick closer than a brother.
7. The decision to be a blessing. (Genesis 12:3 KJV).
You can fulfill your assignment, excel in your career, and still not be a blessing.
Being a blessing is when nations arise to thank God for their existence.
Fame and popularity do not equate to impact. Choose to be impactful over being popular. The greatest way to live your life is to spend it glorifying God and being a blessing to humanity.
The greatest way to bless people is to introduce them to Jesus Christ. Should you feed, house, or empower people without introducing them to Jesus, they can die and go to hell. But if you lead them to Jesus Christ, they have everything.
Souls being saved through your life, is enough motivation to stay alive.
EXAMINE YOUR LIFE: living for yourself is a loser’s path to life. Our lives ought to be spent for a cause greater than ourselves. The cause of redemption and salvation is by far the noblest. (Matthew 25:21)
Pray: I choose life!
I choose spirituality!
I choose transformation!
I choose purpose and meaning!
I choose health and longevity!
I choose quality, destiny relationships!
I choose to be a blessing!
Let my life count, in the name of Jesus Christ!
Pray and ask The Lord to help you make quality decisions through The Word, the ministry of The Holy Spirit, and the counsel of other leaders.
