I have chosen you.

“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.” John 15:16

“You are chosen by Me. You are chosen by the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Why do you say, “Lord, choose someone else.” I have chosen you. I have ordained you and placed you in Me, and I will be glorified in your life. I choose the foolish things to confound the wise. I choose the weak things to confound the mighty. I choose what others have thrown out, written off, pushed aside and said there is no way. I will do what others thought was impossible for you, in you, and through you. I will make a way out of no way for you. I have plans to prosper you and give you a hope and a bright future. I will free you by My power and use you to set many people free. I will awaken your spiritual senses, and use you to awaken and revive many. You know what it is to be empty. Now you will know what it is to be filled completely. You know what it is to be naked and afraid. Now you will know what it is to be clothed by Me. You know what it is to live in fear. Now you will know what it is to live by faith. I have chosen you to live, move and have your being in Me. Don’t say, “Lord, choose someone else.” My choosing is right. My ways are perfect. I have chosen you for such a time as this. You will show My love and power to a world that is hungry for Me. When you align yourself with My will and trust My choosing, I will increase you more and more. I will cause great grace to abound toward you. I will meet your every need and I will direct your every move. So much is waiting for you. So much is waiting. I have so many things to show you. I have so many things to give you, but I am waiting for you to accept the truth that I have chosen you. Accept that I have ordained you and placed you in Me. Receive the great commission to go and make disciples for Me.”

Prayer: Lord, thank You for choosing me. I receive your plan for my life. I say “yes” to you and “no” to the devil. I receive Your truth and I reject every lie from the enemy. I am Your chosen daughter and I yield myself to you, every part of me. Have Your way in me. I know what it is to be so empty, but I thank you for filling me completely. Clothe me God. In you I live, move and have my being. I receive Your choosing. I receive Your command to go. I receive what You have said about me. I love you, Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read 1 Corinthians 1:26-28; Jeremiah 29:11; Acts 17:28; Matthew 28:19-20)
