Ephesians 1:3-4 (AMP)3 May blessing (praise, laudation, and eulogy) be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) Who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual (given by the Holy Spirit) blessing in the heavenly realm! 4 Even as [in His love] He chose us [actually picked us out for Himself as His own] in Christ before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy (consecrated and set apart for Him) and blameless in His sight, even above reproach, before Him in love.
We can see clearly what goes on in the world but it is sometimes difficult for us to see what is going on in the spirit. A lot of us don’t feel good about who we are and we feel pressure to be somebody who we are not. There’s so much insecurity in this world because of pressure put on us about how people think we should be. God will never help us to be anybody but ourselves. We should live to please people, but to please God. We need to know who we are and who we are in Christ.
When we give our life to Christ we become the home of God. God will enable us to do anything we need to do. It may not be an easy ride, but God will give us the ability we need. God chose us even before we gave our life to Him. God chooses us not because we deserve it but because He loves us.
God has a great plan for our life. We need to start believing that. We need to learn how to start living in agreement with God and what the bible says over our life and stop believing what people say about us.
