“You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you…” John 15:16 (KJV)
Jewish custom was for students to choose their master, and not the other way around. Jesus broke away from this tradition and chose who would follow Him and be His disciples. Do you know you are chosen by God? When God chose you, there was nothing you did to earn it. It wasn’t your gifts, your way with people, or your good looks that caused God to choose you. It wasn’t your business sense or your strength. His choosing you had nothing to do with you of which you could boast and brag. He chose you, saved you and called you for His purpose and grace simply because He loves you. What a great honor! You were selected and chosen by God for such a time as this. Don’t try to earn it or try to keep God interested in you. Simply say “Yes Lord I’ll follow You” and walk in the fact that you are a chosen daughter of God.
Prayer: Father God, thank You for choosing me to know You and be Your daughter. Your choosing me had nothing to do with me. Help me not to try to earn it or walk in fear losing it, but help me simply receive it and walk in it. I say “yes” to You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
