Now Laban had two daughters: the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel. Leah’s eyes were delicate, but Rachel was beautiful of form and appearance. Now Jacob loved Rachel; so he said, I will serve you seven years for Rachel your younger daughter. Genesis 29:16‭-‬18 NKJV

Our life journey is in different phases, times and seasons namely, past, present and future. The present time that is, the *“NOW”* of your life offers you a fresh opportunity to make a new and better choice which is capable of correcting all the errors of your past life and set you on a new pathway to your glorious future.

However, your response in the current situation and the choice you make *NOW* will determine whether or not you are in for a new and a better experience that your present circumstances provide. Your understanding of who God is, your knowledge of God’s purpose He has chosen you to accomplish in life and the revelation of His ways you have learned hitherto will influence your choice *NOW.*

Be careful then, not to allow your sight to deceive you and don’t be carried away by your emotions. Not everything that looks beautiful *NOW* gives a lasting satisfaction and not everything that appears raw, crude and unrefined *NOW* will remain in that form forever. Rather, acknowledge God and rely on the leading and guidance of the Holy Spirit in making your choice.

This will save you from unnecessary stress, trouble monumental regret. May the Lord God help you to always walk by faith and not by sight and may God help you to maximize the leading and guidance of the Holy Spirit your Senior Partner while making critical choices in life. Good morning and do have a blessed day.

Your brother,
