The Heart of Chosen
A Letter from Cindy
Years ago I had a strong sense in my spirit that God wanted me to speak one word to His daughters. I started praying, asking God what this one word would be. One day, when I was in the shower – yes, God can speak to you in the shower, He can talk to you anywhere; He spoke to me and this one word flashed across my eyes. I saw the word CHOSEN. Then I heard the scripture Ephesians 1:4 “just as (in His love) he chose us in Christ (actually selected us, picked us out for Himself as his own) before the foundation of the world so that we would be holy (set apart for Him, His purpose, and His desire) and blameless in His sight.”
Wow! What a powerful word and what a huge surprise that He showed ME this word. God had done a miracle in my own life years before and revealed to me that I was CHOSEN.
I grew up never really believing that I was worth it and I was wanting to be loved for so long until the Lord did a sovereign work in my life. I believed a lie and lived a life of rejection. I had asked Jesus to come into my heart at a young age but I did not have the fullness of what His blood actually accomplished for me on the cross working in my life yet. God had to literally knock me down and out to reveal what His love did for me. I felt like I was going through a scanner with all the lies, the hurts, the pain, the unworthiness, the rejections being erased completely. For the first time, I saw myself in the loving arms of my heavenly Father and when I woke up and for the first time I knew I was loved! I was accepted! I was chosen! Of course this would be the message He wanted me to share with His daughters!
Of course He wanted His girls to know how special they are…Chosen! Of course He wanted me to share this message so “they would be rooted deep in His love and founded securely on His Love. That they may have the power to be strong, to grasp with all saints the experience of that love. What is the breadth, the length, the height and the depth of it. That they may really know – practically through experience for themselves the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge! That they would be filled through all of their being with the fullness of God-they would have the richest measure of the presence of God and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself!” – Ephesians 3:17-19.
This is the Chosen message!
You are Chosen in love, set apart for Him, for a purpose!
