Called Out


You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession…you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.

Read 1 Peter 2:9, NLT

Bet you didn’t realize that you are included in a company of royal priests, invited to enter the very throne room of God. While you’re out looking for a job and it seems that no one is choosing you, the truth is that you have already been chosen! You are God’s very own possession. And He treats His possessions very well indeed. We are to be so excited about our position in the Lord and about our status in the Kingdom that we just burst forth in showing goodness to others. We can’t hold ourselves back from being joyous and generous and loving. Our eternal future is secure, our past has been washed away and abundant life is racing towards us this very day. Can you get this revelation all the way into your heart? Knowing who you really are, in Christ, will affect everything about you job search and your future. When you go forth as a highly favored child of the Most High God, a chosen and dearly beloved child, people will treat you differently. You’ll find a welcoming reception unlike what you’ve ever experienced. Let God reveal your true identity to you and see how life can change, from the inside out.

I am a chosen and beloved child of God Almighty.

The goodness that God showers upon me is evident to all I meet.

By faith I accept that I have been called into the light of God so that I may lead others out of the darkness
