On our own, we sometimes decide to do something that we want to do but it’s not a very smart thing to do.
Without consulting God, we can decide to go a direction that is going to take us to a place we don’t want to be.
– and He lets us.
We can convince ourselves we need that expensive toy or this new car or that bigger house so we buy it even though we can’t afford it – without checking with God.
– And He lets us.
He also lets us deal with the consequences of making these poor choices. We don’t like that part. We might even ask God why he is letting this bad thing happen to us. How did he let us get into this mess? In reality, we got ourselves into this mess.
God gives us the freedom to make our own choices – knowing that we won’t always make the right ones. He know that he could help us make the right choices – if we would just ask. We have the option of avoiding these nasty consequences.
We are free.
It’s our choice.
Please help us be wise with our choices, Abba Father.
