…I Have Chosen You…

John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

Yesterday, I did not get a chance to write a post for the blog and facebook. Two different projects took all of my time. In the morning, I was sitting in the office of my doctor for my 4 month checkup as a result of the stroke I had last Easter Sunday. Not a pleasant rememberance except for the keeping hand of God.  He was with me every step of the way. 

It reminds me of the verse I have chosen for today! It is amazing to read that you and I have been chosen by God.  He chose us even before we decided to come to Him as our Lord and Saviour. I can remember as a youth being in the group in Gym class or on the basketball courts or the baseball fields waiting for the  captains of the teams to choose the members they wanted to play for them. It was always a time with a little anxiety as you waited for your name to be called.  I can remember the relief when I was not chosen last and was put on the team only because I had to be.

As I think of those things this morning, I want you to know that we are all chosen and we are all on the first team. God does not make any difference between us. He loves us all and He has chosen us to meet our needs and to minister peace to our hearts.

Think of it! You are His chosen. You can go to Him and make your needs known. You can have confidence that as His child he will hear you as you pray and He will not leave you alone.  You are on God's first team. You are chose by Him.  Lean on Him and gain His strength. With Him you can overcome every trial!  CHOSEN BY GOD! YOU… ARE SPECIAL!

Keep Looking Up!
