In Him We Were Chosen

In Him We Were Chosen

I don’t know about you, but I take comfort in the fact that God chose us. When I was younger, a little girl, I felt like I was the one looking for God. I had a yearning to learn more about Him and didn’t know where it came from.

Now I do.

He chose me, as He does with you, and loves us first so that we can love him. Think about the implications for that. It really blows my mind a little, as many things often do with our most awful and radical God. He’s an out of the box thinker, and in choosing us tells us we’re loved, we’re cherished… which gives us a special kind of freedom all its own.

In Him

In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will

Ephesians 1:11


As you mediate on this verse today, remember that God has a purpose for your life. Just settle in to that thought and take comfort.
