The context of your life is never more powerful than the content of the promises contained in God’s Word. Your context may be filled with pain and sorrow or a paralyzing fear about your future. These can be overwhelming things to experience but they never have authority over the content of God's Word if you choose to believe no matter what your circumstances are saying to you. You always have the option to choose life even when it seems like you are surrounded by nothing but death.
“Now listen! Today I am giving you a choice between life and death, between prosperity and disaster. For I command you this day to love the Lord your God and to keep his commands, decrees, and regulations by walking in his ways. If you do this, you will live and multiply, and the Lord your God will bless you and the land you are about to enter and occupy” ( Deuteronomy 30: 15-16).
