YOU ARE CHOSEN

“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness unto his marvellous light:” 1 Peter 2:9 KJV
Child of God, I want you to settle it in your heart that you are chosen by God. This is one of the foundational truths that you must build your life upon. You are not an accident. God intentionally chose you by Himself, so that through you, many will see His goodness. John 15:16 tells us: “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” (KJV).
Beloved, don’t allow the devil deceive you that you are just ordinary and there’s nothing special about you. No! God deliberately ordained you to fulfil His purpose here on earth. You must constantly walk in the reality of this truth in order to accomplish all that God has purposed for your life. Right believing will result in right living. When you know that you are chosen, accepted in the beloved, loved by God and that He is on your side, then it empowers you to go out into the world and shine your light for Him.
These are not the days to walk around ignorant of who you are. I encourage you to get my messages on your new reality in Christ. Listen to them over and over again, so that you can be established in the truth of God’s Word. Walk in the understanding of the truth of who you are. You are a new creation in Christ! You are not an ordinary man! You are chosen! You are peculiar and you are royalty. When you are chosen, you will conquer whatever the enemy throws at you. The chosen is bold, strong and courageous to take what has been made available to him. He also knows that the God who chose him is with him.
