I am chosen by God – Ephesians 1:4
Have you ever longed to be chosen because you were really wanted, because you were really desired? Child of God, the Lord chose you “before the creation of the world” He chose you because He wanted you – not because of your strength, scholarship or skill. You can take no credit or merit in being chosen. Jesus clearly states “You did not choose me, I chose you” John 15:16
The Lord chose David, the youngest of all his brothers – as he was out tending sheep. In every one’s eyes – he certainly wasn’t king material! But, when he was chosen – the Spirit of the Lord came upon him in power! I Sam. 16:13
God used the young inexperienced David to conquer the giant Goliath. How could he be so confident in battle? David knew that if God had chose him – he would equip him. He understood the true source of strength – declaring before the confrontation “The battle is the Lord’s” I Sam 17:47
When you face the “Goliath’s” in your life, remember this: you have been chosen by the Lord.
As you see yourself through God’s eyes – have confidence in the Lord – the battle is His!
