But you are a chosen people

“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭2:9‬ ‭NIV‬‬

As believers in Christ we are chosen by God. It is a work of His grace and His mercy. When we come to Christ and make a decision to follow Christ it was the Holy Spirit who was drawing us the entire time. 

The enemy will often lie to us and discourage us. He will tell us that we are worthless and that God cannot use us. But all of these are simply lies. If our faith and trust is in Jesus Christ then God has prepared works for us to do ahead of time. We must open our heart to the work and leading of the Holy Spirit. We must ask the Lord to baptize us in the Holy Spirit to empower us to be a witness for His kingdom. 

Today if you are struggling with discouragement and issues concern self worth understand that in Christ you are a new creation. In Christ you are a child of God. His love for you is eternal and unconditional. He has called you, anointed you, and gifted you. Stand strong in the Lord and the power of His might.
