Why men make wrong choices

Though God is a God of right choices, He will never force His will on any man. On the other hand, satan is the god of wrong choices and he will do everything to force his will on men if allowed.

Be clear-minded and alert. Your opponent, the devil, is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. (1 Peter 5:8 ISV)

Wrong choices are made when men stop listening to God and opens door for the deception of the devil. One of the devil’s striking weapons of mass destruction is deception. He goes about in a restless and determined way to lure people into his net.

We are living in days when the devil is deceiving many people to make wrong choices. Secular leaders are choosing corruption over human development. Destruction is on the increase because men chose war over peace. All of these wrong decisions are products of the deception of the devil.

The devil is doing everything possible to deceive men because he wants them to live in constant disobedience to God. Whenever you make a wrong choice, you drift from the purpose of God for your life. One wrong decision by King David instigated by the devil led a whole nation of Israel into punishment from God. “Then Satan attacked Israel by inciting David to enumerate a census of Israel… God considered this behavior to be evil, so he attacked Israel.” (1 Chronicles 21:1,7 ISV)

Satan, the god of this world specializes at inciting men to make wrong choices. “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them”. (2 Corinthians 4:4 KJV). The devil will make a married man choose a night pleasure with a prostitute over peace with his wife. Many wives are deceived by the devil to disobey their husbands.

God has sets of order for every sphere of our lives and following them is the best way to get good results. But the devil will always want us to rule out God’s order and do what we like. God’s order is that a man should marry a woman, but satan in his quest to change it have made men choose marrying their fellow men (homosexuality) as a way of life. The devil is busy inciting men to do wrong things. But the power of God is able to deliver as many that will come to Him for help.
