God Has Chosen You

Ephesians 4:3-4

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love.”

This is another great Truth from the Word of God. It is a truth that as we read it, believe it and absorb it into our spirit, will sustain us, bless us and make us bold! After all, it is a bold statement. Just think of it. As a child of God, you are ‘in Christ’.

You are:

a. Blessed with Him
b. Seated with Him and
c. Chosen in Him.

What is even more amazing; this was all planned “before the creation of the world”.  

None of us are here by accident. Bible truth is that God knew me before the creation of the world. Not only did He know me but He had planned for me. Both my natural and my spiritual birth were known by God. My natural birth on December 17th, 1932 was no surprise to God! King David said in Psalm 139 “You knit me together in my mother’s womb – before my days began you knew every one of them”.  When I was Born Again 16 years later, that was no surprise to Him either. In fact, the circumstances of my life even before I became a Christian were known to Him. He had planned for me and was expecting me! He transformed all my past negatives into future positives that would add to my effectiveness as a child of God and as an heir of the Kingdom.

Remember; “we are CHOSEN IN CHRIST BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD”. Grasp this truth. To understand fully our Father’s love for us, and of our value to Him – we have to start at the beginning. Not the day we were converted – or the day we were born – or whenever – BUT, IN HIS HEART BEFORE EVEN TIME BEGAN. He knew every fault you had and every mistake you would ever make. He knew that you would sometimes fall, but that you would get up again. He knew that you would follow Him and that He would fill you with His Spirit. He knew that in His hands you would become an instrument of honour and that He would perfect the work he started and that your victories would encourage others.

Before you go, turn to Ephesians 2:10 “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them” Think about that!

Be blessed as you walk in the truth.
