“But you are the ones chosen by God, chosen for the high calling of priestly work, chosen to be a holy people, God’s instruments to do his work and speak out for him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference he made for you—from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted.” 1 Peter 2:9-10 MSG
You are called and chosen by God for a purpose - even now in the year 2020!
What has God prepared you to for?
He is continually working and developing us if we are plugged into Him. This is the only way we can make sure we are on His path, and not off on our own rabbit trail. I’ve gone down a few of those myself and I’m determined to avoid them in the future. When I decide to follow a path that God isn’t blazing for me, I choose to distance myself from His will and His blessing. It always turns out to lead to a cold and lonely place...and this is not God’s will.
I’m choosing to be a disciple - To trust that God is who He says He is, and will do what He says He’ll do. I’m choosing to follow His path even though it leads to new places which I cannot see. My prayer for me and for you is that we will be drawn close to God, that we’ll be and do all that God created and purposes for us, that we will love like He loves and be filled with His Spirit and wisdom. Amen! #justdoit #discipleship #calledandchosen #createdonpurposeforapurpose #childofgod #shalom #yourjourneytobeingwhole #dailydevotional
