Ephesians 1:4 Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes.
God’s perfect love can eliminate all dread. It’s not our love for Him, but His perfect love for us that will cast out our fears. When Jesus’ hands were nailed to a cross, His fingers pointed to you and me – He intentionally chose to die for us. He chose you and He chose me and He chooses us every day.
He didn’t choose to love you because you were lovely, He loved you and then you became lovely. Your value comes from His inherit value.Jesus is the light of the world. When darkness seems to surround you, the light of Jesus will break through.
God chose you. Let that truth sink deep into your heart. Looking at 2 Thessalonians 2:13, you are not only loved by God but chosen. Regardless of how others view you, God chose you from the beginning of time. (Ephesians 1:4) Before the foundations of the earth were put in place, God knew you, loved you and chose you. Even if no one ever sees your value, God does. Not only does He dearly love you, He has called you. (2 Thessalonians 2:14) There is a grand purpose for your life…bigger than what your limited eyesight can see at this moment.
