“But you are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A CONSECRATED NATION, A [special] PEOPLE FOR God’s OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies [the wonderful deeds and virtues and perfections] of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”
1 Peter 2:9 AMP
In the eyes of God , you are among the most special people in the world . He loves you and he has chosen you to come close to him . What an awesome privilege!
“Blessed is the one whom You choose and bring near To dwell in Your courts. We will be filled with the goodness of Your house, Your holy temple.”
Psalms 65:4 AMP
Many times in our day to day life , the decisions of many people , most times influential people , affect our lives and destinies . Some people pick and choose who they want to work with , who they want to interact with and who they want to promote . You may not be the most qualified many times and so you may be among those who missed out on a very great opportunity. God reminds us that we are a chosen generation , as we have the great privilege to be to get close to him and to be filled with his goodness despite who you are and what you have done . Do not be dismayed when you do not get that promotion or that position that you felt was yours for the taking . When God picks you to get close , no other position or person can replace all that goodness ! You are loved , you are special and you are specially chosen by God for such a time as this !
Whenever I think about how wrong and how embarrassing my life was before I met Christ , I have no right to even write to you . As God has shed his great light of salvation in my life , I get emotional thinking of how unqualified I was to even be close to him today . I do not deserve one iota of all the blessings I am receiving and all I can say is ‘ God , I thank you for choosing me !’ Every day is a reminder to me that I am chosen for a purpose and the whole world must know that God has been so gracious to select me. This can be your story too . After all , as you’re reading this , God is choosing you !
Be blessed !
