Verse Passage: 1 Samuel 12:22 “For the sake of his great name the Lord will not reject his people, because the Lord was pleased to make you his own.” – NIV
Has there ever been a time when you have been rejected or passed over? Sometimes it hurts. In school you might’ve been passed over in the draft pick for dodgeball. At work passed over for a certain promotion. In life passed over for a chance at success. Whatever the case, there is sometimes a feeling of inadequacy. This feeling is a tough one to get over because it makes you feel you are not a qualified person to do certain things in life.
One of the most amazing things about being a Christian is finding out that God doesn’t play that game. He has not only formed you in His image but has chosen you to not only be a royal priest but also to be His. You are God’s #1 draft pick every single time. There are gifts and talents He has given each and everyone one of us.
Let’s stop getting hurt by getting passed over on something that is temporary. Let’s start acknowledging God and His love for us. Let’s start being joyful that we are chosen by God and He will not pass us over.
It is only in Him that you find your worth. You find that you are wanted and needed all the time. Don’t let the world tell you when your good because God has already declared that you are great! He has already said your worth it all! He has already said your worth whatever the cost. He has already said your number one. We need to stop listening to others who don’t see us the same way that God sees us. To the world your the same as the next person behind you. But God! God thinks your the rarest of them all. There’s not one single person who is like you. He made you different than all the rest. He has chosen you as the best. He set you apart. He made you a apart of His kingdom. Your an heir to all He has. You have authority and power that has come from Him and been given to you. You are His number one. Stop letting the world treat you like number two. Because your the best!
