Choose your Spirit

Did it ever occur to you that you are not different from other people? Whomever has been and whoever is now living, is not any different from you. Whatever they have been or are, you too can be. Even much more than that. This is the truth. The whole truth and nothing but the truth.
So whomever or whatever you would like to be is possible because if it has been for someone else, then it can be for you. Because you are not any different.

Why is it then(as some would ask) that we seem to be different? Even children born of the same mother and father? Why is it that we take different paths in life, have different experiences along the way and end up with different destinies even though we are all the same? This is a question I will answer down below but first, let's agree that we are all the same. Think of this; Take one person that you really admire or honor. One whom you sometimes wish you could be like. Let's say you are sitting in one small room having a chat only the two of you and are wearing a similar gown(naked could be more elaborate of your similarities but let's try to be discreet). Let's say that I don't know him/her (even if it's an international figure). If I walk into the room, do you think I will be able to tell the difference between you and your colleague in terms of accomplishments and influences? I can't.

To me, as I walk into the room, all I see is two human beings having a chat. Leave the fact that one could be taller or shorter, fat or thin. One too could be of a different color from the other. Still another could be missing a part of his/her body. All these though have never been the main determining factors of levels of accomplishments or influence in the past(they shouldn't be even now). So as I walk into the room, I see two human beings that could be anything in this life.

So then, what is it that is different with you from the person that you admire/honor?

It is just the spirit.

We all are the same as human beings but we differ in the spirit within us.
That is the difference between you and the person that you were sitting with and having a chat in that room. That person whom you admire/honor. The person you have many times desired to be like. Yes you could be in their position, if only you had their spirit. The spirit within them makes them to be the people they are in the society. People of accomplishments and/or influence. It is all in the spirit.

The good news to you today is that you have a choice. You can choose to have the spirit that will take you where you want to go. That spirit that has taken others to a place where you would wish to be. It is a choice you make. If you are not where you would have liked to be, make your choice of spirit today and change your destiny. That's where it all begins. That's what keeps it going. That's what brings results. Choice of spirit.

Let me break this down for you.

You can have a good spirit or a bad spirit.

A spirit of good or a spirit of evil.
A spirit of love or a spirit of hate.
A spirit of power or a spirit of weakness.
A spirit of confidence or a spirit of fear.
A spirit of persistence or a spirit of giving up.
A spirit of happiness or a spirit of sadness.
A spirit of encouragement or a spirit of discouragement.
A spirit of ....................................................... (the list goes on)

Make your choice today.

All in all, I pray that you choose the Spirit of God. To me it is the best choice you can make.

See what Samuel tells Saul in the Bible.

":The Spirit of the Lord will come powerfully upon you, and you will prophesy with them; and you will be changed into a different person. Once these signs are fulfilled, do whatever your hand finds to do, for God is with you." ~ 1 Samuel 10:6-7

Paul says,
"For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline." 2 Timothy 1:7

Choose the Spirit of God for the fruit of His Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. as found in Galatians 5.

This is another ChooseDay. Have a great day as you make a choice that will determine your future.
