For he (God) chose us in him (Jesus) before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight (Ephesians 1:4).
So, as we move through Thanksgiving week, here’s a little something else to be thankful for:
You are the chosen one.
Well, maybe not the chosen one, but certainly a chosen one.
Consider this: before he made the world, God had you in mind.
He knew who you would be, how you would be. He saw your “We are the Champions” moments, your happy times,
your foolish choices
your many sins
your epic, seemingly endless failures
before they ever happened.
And he loved you.
And he chose you.
Now consider this: God is not bound by time, right? Past, present, future—it’s all kind of now to him. So when he looks at you he sees you not only as you are, but as you will be.
Now, if only you could learn to see yourself as he sees you, hmm?
In the meantime, color yourself thankful and go forth in joy.
Happy Tuesday, Beloved.
