    One point that I really got from Min. Riley's message is that we have a choice but so does God. His choices toward us often are based on what choices we make. It's pretty difficult to bless us if we are in disobedience. Min. Riley referenced 2 Chron. 7:13-20 or so, this whole portion of scripture is about "if"; in fact the chapter before it is as well. There are two separate "if" choices in these scriptures. If the people chose to "not" obey then God's choice was to send pestilence and sword and whatever else, but if the people chose to humble themselves, pray, seek His face, turn from their wicked ways, then God's choice would be to forgive them and heal their land.

    I appreciate this message because it causes me to not only look at what choice I am making, but on how the choice I make will affect what God's choice will be. Yeshua chose to lay down His life. That is something that we must remember. His life was not taken from Him, He chose to obey the Father and lay it down. Had He not laid His life down, the Father would not have been able to exalt Him above all. I liked how Min. Riley said that one way for us to lay our life down for someone else is through prayer and fasting. This is excellent because it causes us to look past ourselves and focus on someone else.

    When Minister Riley was preaching on Sunday I thought about counting how many times he say the word choice 10, 20, 50, 100 would we make it to a hundred hundred fifty I don't know I lost count but the reality is how many times do we make a choice everyday and do we lose count of how many times we make a good choice or how many times we make a bad choice. The reality is we are choosing everyday and every moment of the day and our choices affect and determine the outcome of each day. So we are choosing this day whom we will serve and we are choosing our future we're choosing to be obedient and to say yes to him or not. Those little small choices every day is what will open up the opportunity for God to choose to finish what his word said he would do or have to wait until obedience is our choice.

    God certainly makes choices based on our choice. Seed time harvest, the tests we are given and cause and effect are all closely related. We may not see the results of our choices today until some later point in time. Each time we are tested, our choices will determine where we land on God's grading scale. Regardless, each choice we make will have some effect.

    One theme that stuck out to me in Min. Riley's message was the theme of God's plan and purpose for us in relation to the choices we make. Yes, God has a personalized plan for each of us. His plan and His will is sovereign, but the choices we make either move us closer to or further away from His plan. I want to be more and more aware of the fact that, even in the little things, my choices affect whether or not God can use me to accomplish His plan.

    Pastor Aaron, your point about the numerous choices we make everyday and really how they determine what kind of day we have, is excellent! Everything we do is a choice, so like you said we would lose count if we tried to count them, yet they each have an opportunity to take us closer to or farther away from God's perfect plan for our lives. I know in my own life I have made far too many choices that have delayed what God desires to do in me and even through me. However, I am thankful for the choices I have made that have taken me closer to Him and have allowed me to see the benefits of obedience.

    Nate, I basically commented on Pastor Aaron and your post combines together--I too want to be more and more aware of my choices in relation to God's ability to use me the way He wants to. I don't want my choices to cause Him to have to look elsewhere.

    I just wanted to say thank you all for posting. I have enjoyed reading what each of you received out of the message. After Pastor Aaron's post it made me think back about how many times I said choices during the message, I'm assuming it was a lot, lol. But you all hit it, we have choices everyday and the choices we make effects a lot around us.

    Great message from Min. Riley. Thank You for sharing your testimonies

    Jesus gave His life for us because of the choices we have made. Our choices caused His action. Min. Riley spoke about sacrificing your own self for another person. I love the testimony he gave about the person that called him, that person needed somebody to pray for him, to encourage him and he didn't have it. I'm so grateful that I have good support within BAM but there are others that are lost and looking for a helping hand. Min. Riley didn't want to do that fast but he knew rather it was while talking on the phone with the individual or after talking to him the purpose for the fast. Min. Riley discovered that it wasn't about him but about a person that is lost. Our choices can help someone or destroy someone. Jesus knew that we were lost and in need of a savior. He sacrificed Himself because He knew it was the right thing to do. I can only assume that Jesus wasn't thrilled about fasting or maybe even sacrificing His life but he did it with love and not thinking about Himself but thinking about us. We should do the same for other. We should be willing to fast, pray, gave time... for others because they need it just as much as we do.

    Everyday we have a choice... rather it be to obey God or disobey Him. Will our choices cause God to bless us or will it cause God to disown us.

    Every we choice we make has consequence, positive or negative, in my life and others around me as well. Min. Riley did a great job pointing out that God has a choice on how we respond or do not respond to His Word. If we do His Word, the blessing and promises of God will follow. If we do not do what He says, His choice is then to allow the consequences of our choices come to us. What really stood out to me is "We get to determine God's choices towards us." If we disobey God, then we made the choice for Him to discipline us. If we obey God, then we made His choice to work through us according to the scripture we are obeying.
    What a powerful thought to have knowing that whatever I choose, God will respond according to my choice.
    Great message!!!!!
