“Consider the blameless, observe the upright; there is a (prosperous) future for the man of peace.” Psalm 37:37.
You have no choice where your past is concerned, it is gone. You have no choice about your heritage, you were born without a vote in the decision. You, however, have a choice about your future. God has given you a sure plan for a prosperous future. Your choices daily are the bridge towards your future.
God has a prosperous future for those who put their faith in Him and with three qualifications:
1) Be blameless. The choice is yours. It is not possible for you to be blameless by yourself but since it is a requirement, God has provided for you the gift of His righteousness. “God made him who had no sin (Jesus) to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” 2 Corinthians 5:21. Believe in the LORD Jesus Christ and you will be saved, blameless.
2) Be upright in character. The choice is yours. Each day nurture a good character by the choices that you make until a good character becomes your very nature. You are made in the image of God and in His likeness. God’s nature is in you so that you can bear the fruit of His Holy Spirit. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23.
3) Choose peace. Peace is a gift from Jesus to you, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27. Now choose to live in peace and guard your heart. “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.” Colossians 3:15. Avoid strife, fear and anxiety. Let Christ rule in your heart as you create and rule your world.
You have a prosperous future. Believe it, declare it and enjoy it.
My heart is an altar for Jesus Christ to rule, guard and prosper with His peace.
