Chosen by God!
God allows challenges so we can choose to reflect His character and walk in His strength because others are always watching. We must always remember that someone is watching what we do much closer than listening to what we say. It is so important that our actions align with our words. We cannot say one thing and do another.
I'm so thankful for His everlasting and unconditional love. Sometimes we must take the time to just reflect on how much God loves us. When we’re going through something it might be hard to remember that and you can believe the enemy wants us to forget it, not trust it. We must trust God’s love for us.
Jeremiah 31:3-4 (MSG) made this crystal clear:
"Israel, out looking for a place to rest,
met God out looking for them!”
God told them, “I’ve never quit loving you and never will.
Expect love, love, and more love!
And so now I’ll start over with you and build you up again,
dear virgin Israel."
Substitute your name for Israel making His Word even more personal to you.
While we're going through it - it's not fun but I think back to the things in my past that I thought would take me out and have realized if I hold on and continue to trust Him I will continue to stand! He's an awesome Abba Father!
No matter what be secure in this truth at all time and in all circumstances:
“This I know, that God is for me.” (Psalms 56:9b NLT)
Say it out loud daily until it become your truth, your natural default to the challenges of life!
