The Good or The Best?

Oswald Chambers 90x115by Oswald Chambers

If you take the left, then I will go to the right; or, if you go to the right, then I will go to the left —Genesis 13:9

As soon as you begin to live the life of faith in God, fascinating and physically gratifying possibilities will open up before you. These things are yours by right, but if you are living the life of faith you will exercise your right to waive your rights, and let God make your choice for you. God sometimes allows you to get into a place of testing where your own welfare would be the appropriate thing to consider, if you were not living the life of faith. But if you are, you will joyfully waive your right and allow God to make your choice for you. This is the discipline God uses to transform the natural into the spiritual through obedience to His voice.

Was Moses A Wise Man—Or A fool?

James Smith 90x115by James Smith

"Moses chose to suffer affliction along with the people of God–rather than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a short time!" Hebrews 11:25

The choice is done. Moses is determined. He has counted the cost! Instead of honor–shame; instead of praise–blame; instead of respect–contempt; instead of plenty–poverty; instead of a princely portion–a slave’s lot.

Was this wise? Was Moses a wise man–or a fool? What do you think of Moses–was he right, or wrong? But if Moses was right, as I suppose you will admit, allow me to ask: Have you acted rightly? Have you made the same choice?
