Many people leave their destiny to chance... But walking in your destiny (i.e. the calling of God for your life) will not happen by accident - BUT IT CAN happen on purpose!

Take a look at Psalm 1 - my commentary in bold

1 Blessed is the one     who does not walk in step with the wicked - CHOICE or stand in the way that sinners take - CHOICE    or sit in the company of mockers, - CHOICE 2 but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, - CHOICE    and who meditates on his law day and night. - CHOICE 3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, - ANALOGY    which yields its fruit in season - RESULT of making the right choices and whose leaf does not wither— - RESULT of making the right choices    whatever they do prospers. - RESULT of making the right choices

 4 Not so the wicked!     They are like chaff - ANALOGY of the one who makes the wrong choices    that the wind blows away. - RESULT of making the wrong choices 5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, - if you don't choose God now, you will not stand before Him in eternity    nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. - those who prefer the passing pleasures of sin rather than the enduring joy of relationship with God will not stand with or have the perspective of the righteous in this life, and in the life to come will not abide with those who are worshipers of God.

 6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, - God looks on the path He has ordained and set out for mankind.    but the way of the wicked leads to destruction. - God will allow people to be destroyed if they choose to reject His way and follow after sin and wickedness.

My point... the choice is yours whether or not you prosper in life. "Prosper" doesn't mean only finances, but health, mental strength, relationships, and any other area you can see Jesus walking in strength.

This month - make the decision to make the above 5 choices, by faith, and grow in wisdom and prosperity, as you draw closer to God through His Word!

May your March 2012 be blessed and prosperous!
