You Are Chosen
I had an awesome thought the other day. Did you know that you were chosen by God? I believe we all know this but to really embrace the fact that He chose you. If you are a believer in Christ, God chose you stand out amongst the unbelievers. Before you were even born you were already a part of His plan.
That is so deep. Every believer is a part of God's plan. The fact that He loves us that much is amazing. We all need to be glad just to be included in that number. God is so good.
But there is something that we all ought to do. We need to recognize who we are and act accordingly. We should never walk around with our head held low. We need to acknowledge our position, our authority, our part in God's plan. We need to realize how important we are. God sent us here for a reason, with a purpose in mind. We just need to trust that His plan is perfect.
We have work to do. To be able to play our position in God's plan. If we all live to seek and find our purpose. Image what difference that would make in this world. Remember we are already chosen. The rest is not that hard.
We need to learn who we are. Live different than the unbelievers. Stand up, stand out and be empowered. Be who you were chosen to be. Live a life where the world can see that you are not like them. Be an example to those around you and remember you are already chosen.
Ask yourself... Are you chosen? Do you blend in or do you stand out?
