Chosen by God!
“The steps of a [good] man are directed and established by the Lord when He delights in his way [and He busies Himself with his every step].” (Psalm 37:23 AMPC)
“Establish my steps and direct them by [means of] Your word; let not any iniquity have dominion over me.” (Psalm 119:133 AMPC)
We must want to be where God wants us to be doing what He wants us to do. That's where His grace is!
“But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me!” (II Corinthians 12:9 AMPC)
Sometimes it means stepping out of our comfort zone, but we can rest assured we don't step alone. He's right there with us showing us the path. We can do this because He never leaves us and His grace is sufficient for anything we will face.
“For He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]” (Hebrews 13:5b AMPC)
