Chosen

“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

Have you ever wondered what your life was meant for? Have you ever found yourself without passion to do anything significant? Times come in our life when we seem to have no desire to really live… to truly make a mark in this world.

You need to know that God has chosen us as His children and His representatives in this world. He has the answers to all of our questions. Like Moses in the book of Exodus, God has a distinct purpose for your life to impact the world around you.

Moses was born to save his people from slavery. Perhaps your purpose isn’t to lead a mass of people from bondage to freedom, but it most certainly is your purpose to touch another life. Each of us are called to one similar purpose, and that is to reach the lost souls we have contact with. Yet, your method what is unique. God wants to use you in a unique way that fits your life… but you’ve got to be willing to both ask Him for it, and follow after it.

Prayer

Dear Lord, I just want to thank you for all that you have done in my life. You have truly done many miracles through me and in me, and I am amazed at how awesome you are. I pray that you will forgive me for avoiding my Purpose in you, and ask you to open my heart to your voice. Help me to always be mindful and thankful that I’m your chosen child. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
