“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 Israelites 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: NEVER take God and His amazing grace and love for granted. Don’t assume that because God’s love is unconditional, we can do whatever we want without giving it a second thought.
God’s love is unconditional, but it is only when we faithfully walking with Him in the footsteps of Jesus that we can receive the blessings and the hope of eternity reserved for God’s chosen children.
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 miraculous wonderful things Jesus has done for me. In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.
