In Him: Chosen

Chosen, think about that for a moment. When I was a child growing up in school I was always hoping I would have been the first one picked on the school grounds during recess. But my stature and me not being the greatest when it comes to playing any kind of sport, I was usually the last one chosen.

I’m so glad God doesn’t look at our stature or our ability to perform in a certain area of our life in order for us to be Chosen. I don’t believe any of us would’ve been picked. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” – Romans 3:23

“Even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the World, that we should be holy and blameless before him. in love. – Ephesians 1:4

Chosen — At times our circumstances, our lives or our jobs can tell us that we are worthless, that we are insignificant. That no one would choose us. We feel like that devastating picture of the boy or girl in the playground last to be chosen to play on a team. But that is simply not what the Bible says. The Bible tells us that we are chosen in Him. When you were chosen? Before the creation of the world. Not after you fasted for 40 days, not after you proved to Him how good you are. But before you were formed, He chose you. Before you were formed, He loved you. Before anything existed, He had you on His mind. You are chosen! Meditate on this today. You are not rejected, you are not left behind, you are not striving to be good enough. Before you existed, He chose you, so there is nothing you can do to make yourself more ‘choose-able’. He loves you and you are chosen in Him! Eph. 1:4
