Joel and Victoria Osteen’s daily devotional June 8, 2016 - Chosen
Today’s Scripture: “For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world...” - (Ephesians 1:4, NIV)
Topic: Chosen [June 8, 2016]
God chose you before the foundations of the earth. Before the worlds were ever formed, He knew you and He didn’t create you to be average. He didn’t create you to barely get by, no, He created you to excel! Not only has He chosen you, but He has equipped you with everything you need to live an abundant life. He has deposited seeds of greatness inside every person. But in order to tap into those seeds of greatness, you have to believe and act on this truth.
Too many people today are going around with low self-esteem, feeling inferior like they don’t have what it takes. They are living a lie. As long as you have a poor self-image you’re not going to experience God’s best. In order to be all that God has called us to be, we have to see ourselves as chosen, valuable and victorious.
Today, meditate on this truth. Let it sink down deeply into your heart. Let it build confidence and security in you. As you understand your value, you’ll rise up higher and experience the life of victory He has prepared for you!
A Prayer for Today: “Father, thank You for choosing me. Thank You for equipping me. Help me to see myself the way You see me. Show me Your ways that I may walk with You in confidence and trust all the days of my life. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
