Chosen

“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:” (1 Peter 2:9)

It is reassuring to know that the God of all creations chose us before time began. God breathed his life, destiny and purpose into us and appointed us to be on this earth for a set time. “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.”(Romans 8:29)

You are not an accident and God did not make any mistakes when he created you. You are created in his image and likeness and the omnipotent God resides in you in the person of the Holy Spirit. We are sons and daughters of the most High God. “And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.” (Galatians 4:6)

You are fearfully and wonderfully made, intricately woven. (Psalm 139) God calls us the apple of his eyes and he has carved our names in the palm of his hands. (Zechariah 2:8; Isaiah 49:16) We don’t have to spend another day trying to measure up to anyone or proving our worth to others. Knowing who we are in God allows us to relax and cease from feeling the need to compete with anyone. Our mission should be to work to be the best version of ourselves and to discover and walk in the purpose which God designed for us before time began.

“According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:” (Ephesians 1:4)

A.P.-Y.
