Who's The Strongest
We are people that are given many rights earned for different reasons, some by our strengths and some by our birth. When it comes to mankind and God there is only two ways that any man can go; the human direction or the way of God.
The first choice is always the human's to make. God will not make people robots. You are free, every one of us, to make our own decisions. God will give us choices, but the ultimate decision-making is up to us.
In Romans 8, the Bible explains that people try life by their own rules and regulations, but that is only religion or man's way. They miss the point that a life of trusting God with decisions is one of faith, not human intellect. Nobody knows what God knows, but think by their own judgment that they will be able to figure things out, and yet in the end miss big time the best God has for them.
God will not force people in submission to Him. But when people don't do something God's best way, they are settling for who's in the other corner, the very one what hates their soul. God gives every person a free will to make decisions for their future with His help or without it. And without it means with Lucifer. There is no other way.
God wants for you His best, and He knows just what that is, and it is up to you. Where you go today and tomorrow and for eternity is with God or without God, and the future is yours until you die. Then it is someone else's, and that determination is made from the decisions you'll make now.
