Why Did God Choose You?

Scripture: Jeremiah Chapter 1

When seeking God about His desire for this time He was seemingly very slow to speak! I have learned, however, not to panic nor even get concerned because He ALWAYS comes through! 

In the news it is becoming more and more common to hear of people, young people in particular, becoming “Radicalized” and JOINING terrorist organizations such as Al Qaeda and the Islamic State. Both of these organizations are known for their hatred of western civilization and their desire to eradicate those who do not believe as they. We hear constantly of individuals leaving their homes from around the globe to go and fight with these organizations giving up all that they have to take a stand for something they think they believe in.

There is a difference between how these organizations go about the process of recruiting their members. These organizations put out blanket statements to incite hatred and violence. Chances are that you will not get a call from the head of any of these groups calling you by name and saying, “I want YOU”! Yet this is
exactly what God did! 

Jeremiah chapter 1 verse 5 says, “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations”. Though this specific example is talking about Jeremiah, Your God, the CREATOR of the Universe, KNEW you BEFORE you were conceived! But He didn't leaves the there! He also “SANCTIFIED” you BEFORE you were born!

This week will be spent in reflective examination on why the God of heaven and earth CHOSE US! 

Prayer: Father it is in the name of Jesus that we come to you. We firstly thank you for calling this time of reflection and consecration. Lord, we thank you for choosing us. During this time allow me to begin to see why You chose ME! Lord, I give my mind, body and soul to you to use as you will. I ask you to keep me
through this day, in Jesus Name….Amen
