30 Days of Identity: I am Chosen
Read this 60 Second devotion. Each day, based on our verse of the day, we will add one new label to our Christian identity. At the end of 30 Days, we will have a life affirming, identity forming declaration. This is life changing stuff! --- Day 21 The Word - "You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you." John 15:16 ESV
A Thought - You did not choose me, but I chose you - Jesus picked me to be on his team. He picked us! The One who made everything looked through time and space and picked this broken vessel to be used to carry the light of the Gospel; such a noble calling.
Many of us may have painful memories of points in our lives when we were overlooked, forgotten, or simply not chosen. Remember, when it really counted, when the team that wins everything was choosing up, you got picked. You got asked to the big dance. You were not overlooked. Now that's a good feeling.
My Prayer of Declaration - Lord, because of You, I am a New Creation, I am Forgiven, I am Reconciled to God, I am Free, I am Loved, I am complete, I am a citizen of Heaven, I am God's Child, I am Strong, I am not afraid, I am God's Masterpiece, His Ambassador, His Witness and He Welcomes me. I am a Servant of God (just like Jesus), I am more than a Conqueror, I am Holy, I am becoming more like Jesus every day, I have been delivered from darkness, and I am chosen! - All blessing, honor, glory, power and praise are Yours, Amen. Touch the Hem of Jesus' Robe and transform your life, 60 seconds at a time. - Scott
