The other day I was encouraged via my daily reading to write down any questions we may have for God. One of mine asked God about how he chose people?
I still don’t have an answer to that question, but I did get an overwhelming sense today of how important our calling is. Ephesians 2:10 – For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Of course we have been anointed as Isaiah 61 clearly tells us to do God’s work here on earth.
Chosen and loved, that means I’m elected, selected, anointed and appointed, approved and favoured, handpicked for service, destined to do good works, endorsed and confirmed, worthy, loved, chosen, redeemed, and it seems that God delights in me, so take a second to think this through, God took time to handpick you, out of all the people on the face of the earth, he selected you since before your birth and if that doesn’t give you a sense of worth then you’ve kind of missed the point that God’s anointing sits with you, step up, that’s all you have to do, there are works that are prepared solely for you, that’s kind of humbling yet true, and if not you, then who? Who can set the prisoner free, bring light to the darkness of captivity, preach the good news or support the broken hearted, if we don’t step up the moment has parted, chosen, that’s a serious calling, is today the day to quit stalling and truly show God how much we adore him?
