I have chosen you to be My own treasured possession.
Deuteronomy 7:6 (WEB)
For you are a holy people to Yahweh your God:
Yahweh your God has chosen you to be a people for his own possession,
above all peoples who are on the face of the earth.
This declaration of love was spoken over the nation of Israel. God had set them apart for Himself and chosen them to be His own treasured possession. We know that as Christians, we have been grafted into the vine (Romans 11:16-18) and now share in the spiritual blessings from Abraham that God had originally declared over the nation of Israel.
We too are a special people that God has chosen for Himself, His treasured possession. Ephesians 1:3-6 tells us how God lovingly chose us before the creation of the world to be adopted as His beloved children in Christ. My question today is this... Do you feel the astronomical value that God has placed on your life?
If not, ask the Holy Spirit to show you how much you are treasured by your heavenly Father! I believe that if you ask Him today, He will be faithful to show you just how much you are loved and valued by God. In Romans 5:5 the Apostle Paul writes... and hope doesn’t disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. (WEB)
