"Faye's daily words of encouragement"# 93 Todays word is: Chosen"

You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you.
You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you.

"Faye's daily words of encouragement" # 93 Todays word is: Chosen"

Definition of the word Chosen: Favored one over others.

Psalms chapter 33 - 12 :Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chose for his own.

Matthews chapter 20-16: So, the last shall be first, and the first shall be last: for many be called, but few or chosen.

Luke chapter 10 - 42 : But one thing is needful: and Mary not hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken from her.

John chapter 15 - 16 : Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring fort fruit, and that your fruit should remain: That what so ever ye shall ask of the father, in my name  , he may give it to you.

1 Peter chapter 2 - 4 : To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed ineed of  men, but chosen of God, and precious.

We are all blessed to be chosen of God, to do mighty works in his name. Chosen mean we are favored over others and this should make us proud to be God's chosen people.  We have to chose also whom we will serve; today me and my household chose to serve God.  I think  we he best are chosen  by the fruit  of our labor. If we have chosen a good work of God: let's make sure we do the best work in our power to satisfy and please God.  It's very important to not only do a good work but a pleasing work for God.

I count being chosen of God an honor that we all should be proud of, to please God by doing a great work.  God could have chosen someone else to spread his word of truth and the gospel of Jesus, but he chose us to reach out to other chosen people. If we are doing the works of God, then we have chosen a good work.
