God formed you, gave you the breath of life, and brought you into the world. He did this so His arms could embrace you and His love could keep you close to His heart—He wanted you to know that your relationship with Him would always be of more value than the things He would have you do for Him. He wanted you to be certain that He loved you completely before you ever did anything in His name.
As His servant, He would never ask you to do anything for Him that He expects you to do without Him. He alone will be your sufficiency. His only desire is that you daily open your heart to His resources.
He has made no mistakes in how He has led you. Even in the hard places, He is working out what is best—not only for you and for others, but also for His Kingdom. He is looking at your heart and asks only that you be faithful. He wants you to know that the results of your obedience are for Him to determine. Be assured that it is His presence that will keep you and make you strong.
You are in God’s place at God’s perfect time. Your days are in His hands. He has gifted you and placed His hand upon you to bless you and make you a blessing. The burden of your service is not yours to carry—as you rest, He will work; as you abide, He will bring fruit; as you sow, He will give the increase. He is your shield and your exceeding great reward.
Continue to be God’s servant, in God’s place, doing God’s will, in God’s way,
and always remember—God has chosen you!
“You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and I have appointed you [I have planted you], that you might go and bear fruit and keep on bearing, and that your fruit may be lasting [that it may remain, abide], so that whatever you ask the Father in My Name [as presenting all that I AM], He may give it to you.” John 15:16 (AMP)
