DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Chosen By God Himself
God knew you, as He knew Jeremiah, long before you were born or even conceived. In the case of prophet Jeremiah, God had already concluded what He would use him for before he was born. Likewise there are many who are instruments in the hand of God, who are still floating about, yet to discover the original plan of God for their lives. It is a great privilege to be called and chosen by the Son of the living God, Jesus Christ to go and bear fruit among men. John 15:16 says Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you and ordained you that ye should go and bring forth fruit and that your fruits should remain. God has a purpose for you. Discover it, and live by it
Point of Emphasis: God has a purpose for each Christian.
Prayer Point: Lord help me to fulfil your original plan for my life.
