I am Chosen

August 29, 2016

I'll be honest, some days I just don't feel like I am chosen to do anything meaningful. Why is that? Do you feel like that too? Going through the day-to-day challenges of this world can sometimes seem overwhelming. Sometimes it can feel as though we are not worthy to be chosen by anyone.

 

As I am writing this post, I am waiting to hear back from an editor for a publishing house on a book I have written. The moment I hit the send button on the email, the darts of doubt stuck in my mind. Is there something in your life happening right now or has something happened in the past that left you feeling less than chosen?  You are not alone.

 

Satan comes to steal our joy. He tells us that we are not worthy enough to be chosen, but that is a lie. If we allow his lies to steal our joy, then our feelings of unworthiness can consume us and lead to negative behavior. This has happened to me!

 

One negative thing that one person said to me in the past can affect me for years to come. If I allow Satan to remind me of those negative words spoken to me, then it would appear he is victorious. But, oh my friends, Satan is not a winner! God is the winner and his Word prevails over all other words spoken!

 

We must remain confident that

 

  • We are chosen to be the children of God (Ephesians 1:4).

  • We have been created in his image (Genesis 1:27).

  • We were created to do good works which have been preordained by him for us (Ephesians 2:10).

  • We are chosen from the beginning for salvation through Jesus Christ (2 Thessalonians 2:13).

  • Jesus died on the cross so we may have eternal life with him (Romans 4:25).

 

When those darts of doubt stick in my mind, I must remember that I am chosen. I am chosen to live the purpose of God's will for my life and that alone brings me joy!
