In Him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of Him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will." Ephesians 1:11
Often we don’t feel worthy of God’s love. We focus on weakness and forget how to faithfully grow. We forget how we're strengthened to walk with Jesus and become convinced we’re not good enough to complete God's tasks.
There’s benefit in understanding we are children of God. When we know Him as loving Father, we become aware He wants us to succeed. God doesn’t want us to struggle with feelings of doubt. He wants to strengthen us with abilities to use the gifts we’re given. He provides opportunities for us to recognize we can do ALL things through Christ. Why would we want anything less than what God wants for us, as He uses us for His glory?
Each day will provide HOPE, as we discover more about ourselves and realize we are treasured and loved. “It is in Christ we find out who we are and what we are living for! “Ephesians 1 MSG.
As we wake in moments of new beginnings, we must stop saying, “I can’t.” God will open our eyes to ALL He provides if we believe and TRUST. He will help us discover the purpose of His will and remind us what WILL be done if we remain faithful. He will help us remember who is working for the good.
Dear God, Thank you for your everlasting love. YOU strengthen us with purpose to be used by You. As we seek Your presence, guide us in the timing of Your will and help us remember we will faithfully flourish if we allow ourselves to be used by You. Thank you, Lord. Thank you! Amen
