SIGNS GOD HAS CHOSEN YOU
I Am Chosen By God, Are You?
Anyone who wants to do great things must be ready to be different. A different person might be set aside by other people, and that can bring worry and a feeling of hopelessness that can be stressful and overwhelming at times. A different person is seen as unique. They will wonder why they do things the way they do them, different from others. A unique person is set aside from others. They do not behave like others, and they usually stand out in creativity in some way.
But the distinctive feature is that we do not do things the way it is done by others. A group of people can also be unique, which is why God sets His children apart. There is a calling over your life, and as a child of God you are called to do great things. Things that will make you the head and not the tail. Things that will prosper you and make you great. God sets you apart so His will for your life will be done.
To Be Set Apart By God
To be set apart by God means that God has picked and chosen you especially for His use. God started with Abraham and blessed him by telling him that he will be a great nation, and will be famous, and will be a blessing. God said He will curse those cursed Abraham, and will bless those who blessed him. God included a very special part that a lot of people ignore.
God told Abraham that all the families of the earth will be blessed through HIm. This part fortells the coming of Jesus Christ, and the blessings that will come to everyone who believes in Jesus. After the death of Abraham, Isaac his son continued to be faithful to God, just like his father. God maintained His promises from Isaac, Cain, and Jacob. Jacob’s children were taken captive by pharaoh, the king of Egypt. But this did not stop God from setting them apart from the rest of the world.
He has chosen you to be His people prized above all others on the face of the earth. The earth it is not because you were more numerous than all the other people that the Lord favored and chose you, for you were the least numerous of people. Rather it is because of His love for you, and His faithfulness to the promise He solemnly vowed .
The faithful God who keeps covenant faithfully with those who love Him, and keep His commandments to a thousand generations. This shows that Israel was set apart by God as He had chosen them for Himself. Because He loved them, and they had the right standing with God. When God loves you He sets you apart and you are to obey Him and not do anything to damage the right standing you have with God.
God Sets You Apart
God sets you apart. He sets you apart from the ways, thoughts, and attitudes of the world. Romans 12:2 – says do not be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, and what is good and acceptable and perfect. The moment you accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior and Lord you are set apart from God, and this must show in the way you live your life. When God sets you apart, He singles you out for special treatment. This way you are blessed by His bidding, and for His pleasure.
You have found favor with God when He sets you apart and His grace will grant you victory all around. Being set apart does not mean things will go well for you at every point in time . Rather it means even when things are challenging God will be there with you. The world has no affection or love for Jesus Christ, and you will be persecuted just as He was. If you do not agree with the world and its principles, you must ensure that you are steadfast and do not allow yourself to be overcome by the world.
Because Jesus Christ has overcome the world, when God sets you apart you do not need to worry about those that set you aside. What other people say or do to you should not worry you at all. People do not get to set the standard for what is special, or the trends that you should follow. They do not get to set the standard. The standard is set by God, and God only. We must live our lives in a Godly way, because He has made me Godly, and He made you Godly, this is the best way He can have a relationship with us.
Is God Calling You?
Every Christian is called to live a life of obiedience to God; but there is also a calling for individual lives. God calls you and He needs you to be a vessel unto honor and He calls you to salvation in Christ. In Matthew 11:22-30 says, “Come unto me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke and learn from Me for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls, for my yoke is easy and my burden is light. God can call you into different things. He can call you in things related to jobs, ministries, relationships, & etc. He can call you to start something or to stop something, and He can call you to go somewhere or stay exactly where you are.
There is a calling over your life by God through Jesus, and He invites you to have a relationship with Him, all you have to do is hand over your burdens and do things His way. The first reason why God calls you is for you to let God love you. God loves you so much, and He wants you to be with Him; but sin drives us away from God. We must avoid sin, so that we can have a relationship with God. So that He can guide us to complete our individual purpose here on earth.
For you to know God’s calling, you have to hear when He is calling you. It is a beautiful and wonderful thing when God sets you apart. It means you are about to be great and do great things. It means your story is about to change for the better and you must keep obeying God’s will if you want Him to call upon you. You must not look and behave like those in the world, but keep yourself pure, righteous, and Holy. God’s calling for your life is to bless you. We must embrace this with all of our heart by being obedient and dedicated to Him.
