His love] He chose us [actually picked us out for Himself as His own]
in Christ before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy...”|
(Ephesians 1:4, AMP)
|Handpicked by God|
Before you were ever born, before the very foundations of the earth, God chose you. He approved you and called you His own. You may have been overlooked by people in your life; maybe you were passed up for a job or overlooked by someone whose opinion you valued; but remember, God won’t ever overlook you. In fact, He handpicked you. He chose you to be holy, or set apart, for Himself. Let that truth sink down in your heart today. You are God’s most valued possession. You are special. You are the apple of His eye. He knows everything about you; He even knows the number of hairs you have on your head. He gave you the gifts and abilities you have for a purpose. You carry great value and significance. Don’t ever lose sight of the fact that you are God’s treasure, and you are handpicked by Him!
