Day 12 – You are Chosen
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
1 John 4:4 NIV
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
1 Peter 2:9 NIV
My friend, do you feel lonely and unloved? Do you wonder if anyone notices you? Do you know and believe you are a chosen child of God? In this busy world we live in it’s easy to feel overlooked and lonely. But guess what, God chose you!! You are His child and He wants to spend time with you! So today, rest comfortably in knowing He loves you, He chose you and you belong to Him.
Thank God for the quiet moments to spend in His Presence.
Ask God to remove distractions so you may focus your heart and mind on Him.
God’s Revelation through His Word
Circle or underline the words or phrases that stand out to you? In your journal write out how you know you are a chosen child of God. Share with Him the hurt and pain you experience from the feeling of loneliness, being unloved and overlooked.
Pray God’s Words back to Him, making it personally applicable to you. Spend time in prayer thanking God for loving you so much that He chose you. Ask Him to help you see and experience His love in your daily life.
In His Calm,
