You Are Chosen

by | Apr 30, 2017

We all want to be chosen; whether it’s for that job we’ve been applying for or that group we’ve been dreaming of being a part of, we all have places where we want to be chosen. But have we forgotten that we are already chosen by the most high God? You are chosen.

We live in a world that demands us to fit in and find where we belong – to choose our own destiny and purpose. But the truth is, you weren’t born to create your own purpose, rather you were born with a purpose.

You were chosen and handpicked by God for a unique purpose that only you were made to fulfill. 

It can be easy to spend our lives feeling depressed that we didn’t get accepted to that job we’ve dreamed of being a part of or how we can’t seem to fit in with certain groups of people. However, we must remember that we have already been chosen by the most high God and that is enough.

Jeremiah 1:5 says, “Before you were in your mother’s womb, I chose you. I set you apart for a special work.” God made each of us with a unique purpose in mind. Being chosen by God is far greater than being chosen by anything else in this world. Nothing in this world can give you purpose because God made you. God knows how you’re wired, and he knows what’s best for you.

Being chosen by God is an honor that surpasses all. 

I grew up in college feeling quite depressed that I never got my dream job.

Interview after interview, I thought I was getting closer to grasping my dream job and fulfilling what I called at the time was my purpose. But when I didn’t get accepted to these companies, I lost my sense of purpose in life. I became weary and depressed because what I failed to realize at the time was that I was trying to chase a purpose that wasn’t made for me.

I was trying to fit into different jobs that the world made and calling it my own purpose. I finally realized that my purpose was made by God’s hand – not by my hands or the world, but by my heavenly father who made me.

Fast forward to today, I thank God that no matter how far I was from God, he still pursued me with love and chose me to be the steward and founder of Living Revelations ministry. I’m still in awe that such a mighty God would choose me to be his servant and messenger of his beautiful word.

Just as God chose me, he also chooses you. God has chosen you for your own unique purpose and has set you apart for a special work that only you were made to do.

No matter how far you’ve gone from God, he is still calling you to be his own. Isaiah 41:9 says, “I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you. I said, you are my servant; I have chosen you and not rejected you.

Have you found your purpose and calling from God? If you’re still trying to figure out what your purpose is in life, don’t look to the world but look to God. God has a plan for your life and he has chosen you to serve him and to touch lives in your own unique way. Live today knowing you are chosen by the most high God. So remember, you are chosen.

Prayer: Lord, I thank you that you have chosen me for a special work within your plans.

    What a beautiful message! Thank you so much for sharing. I know I have struggled with this a lot. I am just now coming to a point where I am finally looking to God for HIS plan in my life. i realize now that His way is THE way I need to be going! I have been going the wrong way for a long time and it’s time that I go the right way. I know I have something special to offer. I just pray God guides me and helps me understand what it is.
