You Belong To Me. I Have Chosen You

YOU BELONG TO ME. I HAVE CHOSEN YOU AND called you out of darkness into My marvelous Light. The fact that you belong to Me—now and forever—provides a firm foundation for your life. This connection with Me can protect you from feeling cut off or adrift in your ever-changing world. Many people attach themselves to hurtful people or harmful things because they yearn to escape their aloneness. But you are never alone, for you are Mine. I chose you before the creation of the world, and you are a permanent member of My royal family.

You used to walk in spiritual darkness before you trusted Me as Savior. I personally brought you out of that darkness into My Light—so that you might proclaim My praises. This is a delightful privilege and responsibility. I have entrusted you with the task of telling others about My awesome qualities. To carry out this assignment effectively, you need to delve into the riches of who I am by studying My Word. You also need to delight yourself in Me. Then the Joy of My Presence will shine from your face as you tell others about Me.

You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.

[1 Peter 2:9]

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.

[Ephesians 1:3–4]

Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.

[Psalm 37:4]
