I have called you back from the ends of the earth, saying, ‘You are my servant.’ For I have chosen you and will not throw you away.
Isaiah 41:9 NLT
Here is a great thought—God has chosen us, and He will not throw us away!
We often value ourselves or others based on accomplishments, character, or net worth. God places value on us because He has chosen us to be in His family. He has redeemed us through the death and resurrection of Jesus. He has paid the price for our sins and failures. He has offered us right standing with God.
Satan loves to remind us of our imperfections, failures, and old habits. The Holy Spirit wants to remind us that God chooses us.
Life is full of struggles, disappointments, confusion, pain, and loss. Sometimes, these are so intense that it is hard to remember we are chosen by God. We are a part of God’s family. We have a future with the eternal Father God.
I am chosen by God. I am a part of the family of God. I am an heir of God and a joint heir with Jesus.
Holy Spirit, I need You to help remind me of who I am and Whose I am. Help me to live up to the value You have placed on me.
