I have so many questions that I’m pretty sure will never be answered on this earth. So many “whys”. A whole lot of “why nots” too. So many things I would like to understand, but never will.
When it comes right down to it though, none of that matters. I know what I really need to know and the main thing I know is that God loves me. No matter how insignificant I feel sometimes, I am significant to Him. He CHOSE me. He knew me long before I was formed.
Do you want to know something else I know? He loves you too. He CHOSE you too. If we are living in His will, we are exactly what and where He wants us to be. If we are not living in His will, we are still His CHOSEN, unconditionally loved children and He is just waiting for us. What a wonderful feeling!
What a wonderful Savior!
In His light,
God Chose You
The Daniel Plan
Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. —Ephesians 1:4 NLT
By faith in Christ you now live at peace with God (Romans 5:1). In fact, God says he chose you from the very start. You are part of his family, and he accepts you completely. In his eyes, you are holy and without fault.
God chose you before he made the oceans. Before he made the solar system, before the sun burst into existence. Before he spread the galaxies of stars across the universe. Before all that he decided, “I’m going to choose to love you.”
If God put so much into creating you to be you, why would you want to be anyone else?
It’s so important to be secure in your identity as one of God’s very own. In order to move forward and make all the changes you desire on The Daniel Plan, you need to know at a profound level how much God loves you.
That will radically change your motivation for moving through the world.
Food for Thought: “Once you had no identity as a people; now you are God’s people. Once you received no mercy; now you have received God’s mercy.” (1 Peter 2:10 NLT).
