“I have only chosen you of all the families of the earth. Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, unless he reveals his secret to his servants the prophets.“
Amos 3:2a, 7
In spite of their disobedience and rebellion, in spite of their lack of faith and near-constant complaining, God chose the Israelite’s to be His precious children. God constantly loved them in spite of their shortcomings because that’s who God is.
There are many lessons we can learn from the Israelite’s’ attitude toward God. The one I want to focus on today is this: don’t take God and His amazing grace and love for granted.
When you know Jesus and God’s love deeply, you will willingly obey God and appreciate what He has done. Never take any of God’s grace for granted because the salvation you have is the result of God’s love and Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross for you.
Just love Him by faithfully walking in the footsteps of Jesus so that you can receive the blessings and the hope of eternity reserved for you.
Have a wonderful day and live with the confident hope of being God’s chosen son or daughter.
Father, thank You for choosing me as Your child.
Help me to appreciate all the miraculous wonderful things Jesus has done for me.
In Jesus’s Name, I pray, Amen.
