Verse: “They will be my people,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. “On the day I act in judgement, they will be my own special treasure. I will spare them as a father spares an obedient child.”
Insight: Oh to be chosen. I remember being chosen last during kickball in grade school, not a good feeling.. We can carry this same feeling into adulthood. Grace and blessing is for others and not me. Why has God passed me? Let’s be reminded of how untrue this is. We see above the Lord saying what my wife and I love to tell our two adopted children, we chose you and are so glad that we did!
Prayer: Lord, thank you for choosing me. I sometimes don’t understand why you do, I so often feel inadequate. Today, I choose to act as a child of yours! I will walk with freedom, confidence, and grace knowing that I am treasured by you. In Jesus name, amen.
