“Divinely Chosen; How Divine That is Indeed!”

“6You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you” (John 15:16).


Though we might wish it differently, not all choices in life are in our hands. It starts out at birth, when no one consulted us on who we would want our parents and siblings to be. We also did not get to choose our own genetic make-up, or our heritage, or our nationality. Nope, no memo was faxed to our mother’s womb to ask us what date and time we would like to become citizens of Earth or how we’d want the whole birthing process will occur; shall it be a natural birth, a c-section, head first or maybe the more challenging feet first? No, by the time we arrive to real Earth a lot of the important decisions have been made for us already. But don’t look at it as a lost of righteous freedom. For fortunately for us, amongst this list of things we could not choose for ourselves, God was the best choice of all and along with him, he made a choice for us that would bring us to salvation.

So, it is important that we understand God has chosen each one of us individually, we did not choose Him. He knows us each by name, and even the hairs on our head have all been counted for. (Mathew 10:30) God knew us while we were in our mother’s womb. This is why we can’t seem to remember a time when we did not know Christ, and it is also why when ever we’ve tried to run away or hide from Him all the roads lead us back to our Lord. Jesus the faithful Sheppard cares for His flock, and He would leave the entire flock to wait just to go looking for one sheep that is missing. Make no mistake, God chose for us a heavenly family, which is His family, a heavenly Father which is He himself, and He chose for us a final resting place which is in His mighty heavens where earthly choices no longer matters, for in heaven our Father already knows our needs and wants and He has fulfilled the wishes even before we spoke. Aren’t we lucky that amongst the millions of living things on Earth, God chose us? How blessed we are indeed.
