When God Chooses!
“But when God, who set me apart from my mother’s womb and called me by his grace, was pleased.” Galatians 1:15
When God chooses, it’s a choice that is beyond human understanding. It’s a choice that cannot be reversed and change. It’s a choice that cannot be undone or forgotten because God chose to do what he sees best for us. So even though we might not support or agree with his decision, we must accept it because God knows it all.
When God was about to appoint a king to the throne of Israel to replace Saul, it doesn’t seem like he would have chosen David as king. But God did. He chose him over Saul and other brethren who were taller, more powerful, or privileged. Even Samuel the prophet was unable to see this until God rebuked him for looking at the appearance of Jesse’s eldest, Eliab, who has an impressive physical appearance.
1 Samuel 16:7 says, “But the LORD said to Samuel, “Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The LORD doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”
If God can choose a shepherd boy to be king, then your case before Him is valid for promotion to the throne of greatness. Your family’s background does not define your tomorrow; your financial status does not mean you are doomed. Your educational qualification does not mean it is over for you. Today does not determine who you will be tomorrow.
People may choose over the physical specimen, but God chooses to look at the heart. Therefore, He will look for a way to help you live your life with purpose and meaning. David became a king despite his flaws and weaknesses because God chose him with grace and chose to do so. May the Lord smile upon you as you walk through this day in Jesus’ name. Amen.
1. Lord, by Your mercy, let me be among those you choose to bless.
2. Psalm 25:6; Remember me with your mercy, O Lord, and let your steadfast love remained as new every day in my home, family, career, ministry, and other areas of my life in Jesus’ name. Amen
