When it comes to chocolates ….. we all have our favourites ….. and our least favourites. But whether or not you like Turkish delight or cherry ripe ….. you get to choose one over another. With that knowledge ….. I used to find it hard to understand the principle that I am chosen by God. I would look at all the other people in the world who were doing amazing things and were far more loveable than me ….. and think ‘How could God choose me?’ I would try harder ….. but still stayed at the bottom of the list in my eyes. I came to accept the fact that there would always be people more popular ….. smarter ….. and attractive ….. but at least I was part of God’s family. But as I got to know my Heavenly Father better ….. I realised He doesn’t see things through my eyes! Through His ….. we are all chosen ….. we are all His favourites! He doesn’t compare us with anyone else. He doesn’t pick one over another! He made us all uniquely different so who are we to reject ourselves ….. or allow anyone else to reject us?
“For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.”
