The Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for his treasured possession, out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth. - Deuteronomy 7:6
Dear Heavenly Father,
I know you first said this to your people, Israel, in Old Testament times. But you have also taught us that in Christ you have chosen us to be your treasured possession since eternity (Ephesians 1). It makes me feel so loved and safe to know that you chose you me before I could have done anything to earn or lose your approval. I know that in grace you chose me still. It's your choosing love that sustains my faith in you even in heard times. I am your treasured possession. You will not let me go. You have my name written in heaven. So, even when I suffer here, I know that you are with me and you are guiding my life in blessedness. You will work everything for my good, because I am yours.
