“Know that the LORD, He is God; it is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture” Psalm 100:3.
What a wonderful God we have who takes care of us in amazing and mysterious ways. He has great and mighty plans for us. As we read in Psalm 33:11, “The counsel of the LORD stands forever, the plans of His heart to all generations.” The day we promised that we are His; He took over us and made wonderful plans for us. Believe me, even until this moment He is the master. “He is the God of my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold and my refuge; my Savior, You save me from violence”
2 Samuel 22:3.
It is a wonderful experience to be His chosen people. As we read in Deuteronomy 14:2 “For you are a holy people to the LORD your God, and the LORD has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples who are on the face of the earth.”
“just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love…”Ephesians 1:4. Yes, He chose us before the foundations of the world and that is amazing. We read in Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
I have reached a point where He is everything in my life. Psalm 16:8 says, “I have set the LORD always before me; because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved.” When I look back, there were many critical situations when I was all by myself. He was right by my side to hold me and take care of me. “He bore us on eagles’ wings and brought us to Himself” Exodus 19:4. “You are my LORD, my goodness is nothing apart from You” Psalm 16:2.
Dear believer, it is high time you give your lives to the LORD. Believe me; He has great plans for you. Let Him be the LORD of your lives.
