Nobody can make you do anything !

No one can make you do anything you don’t want to do! You were born with a will and when you bend that will to the desire of others it is because you have chosen to do it. Were you pressured? Emotionally blackmailed? Whatever the reason was that you gave in, you made the choice to do it, are we straight on that? When God created Adam and Eve it was to have their companionship, to be able to come down in the cool of the evening and walk and talk with them. I have often wondered what they discussed, was it concerning what the created duo had done that day in the garden or do you imagine that God included them in talk of the angelic beings, if He described to them the fall of Lucifer when one-third of the angels rebelled with him. I wonder if God anticipated them choosing to eat the fruit from the tree instead of choosing a relationship with Him?

God didn’t create us as puppets so that a string could be pulled and we would fall down and worship Him, or pull another string and we become loving people who care about each other, no He gave us a free will to do whatever we want to do.

When the children of Israel were in the desert going around the same mountain for forty years Joshua gave them a little talking to, he told them to make a choice! Joshua 24:15  If you decide that it’s a bad thing to worship God, then choose a god you’d rather serve—and do it today. Choose one of the gods your ancestors worshiped from the country beyond The River, or one of the gods of the Amorites, on whose land you’re now living. As for me and my family, we’ll worship God.”  He made his choice for God and emphatically told them about it!

Just a thought here, I am wondering why in the world they would have to even think about choosing whether to serve a god they had hand-made from the jewelry they had taken from their own ears and from around their neck and wrists, or the God that had brought them out of slavery in Egypt! I mean to me that was a no-brainer! But my point is that they did have a choice whether I think they were stupid or not!

The ones that chose to serve God went on to finally end up in their Promised Land.

If you have been walking toward your own Promised Land and it feels like you’re walking around the same mountain in the desert, don’t give up by choosing another god. The choice is yours, no one can make your mind up for you and God won’t make you do anything!

About harolene

Thank you for stopping by for a visit! If you read my thoughts you will see that I am sometimes serious, at other times sappy or funny, occasionally I am sad and sentimental, but I am always sincere! I am a single mother who raised two children, born ten years apart and different sexes so first it was bows and dolls, pretty dresses and boys! When my son was born it was rough and tumble games, baseball, soccer, wrestling and girls! I am known for my "smile" and for my default answer to any situation, "no problem", which was something I didn't realize I did until it was pointed out to me! I am a moon watcher and a star gazer. I am astounded and feel so small knowing that every creature that has ever walked the face of this earth has gazed upon that same beautiful orb that my eyes can behold on any night when the earth is not wearing her cloak of clouds. My parents have made me the person that I am. Their love, veracity in all areas of life, humor and passion for their work and each other have given me hope that my life can actually be a happy one! Chances are if you are reading this you already know all this but again, I appreciate your stopping by! While you're here hit the "Like" button for me and thanks for checking in!
