“ Where is another God like you, who pardons the guilt of the remnant , overlooking the sins of his special people.” Micah 7:18 NLT
Have you ever thought of how God views you? Throughout the years, especially as a babe in Christ I was often taught that I am a child of God. A daughter of the king . A citizen of heaven. All of which is very true. But to God I am so much more, to God I am special, to God I have been specifically hand picked to partake in his kingdom,
I am special to God, I was chosen on purpose for a purpose.
You are special to God, you were chosen on purpose for a purpose.
Read : Micah 7: 18 - 20 , Romans 8: 29-30
God already foreknew you , he already knew each of us who would and wouldn’t respond to his call. For some of us we may have answered his call at a very young age but for others of us we may not have answered his call until much later in life. Those who he already foreknew he predestined them to be conformed to the image of his son and he called them so that they may be justified and glorified
To be called means to be summoned or invited. It means to be called by name, a specific name. .
God has intentionally summoned you.
God has intentionally invited you.
God has intentionally called you by name , a specific name .
You are a special people to God. God looks at you and sees more than just a daughter or a son of God. God looks at you and sees you as his own. God looks at you and sees you as set apart. God looks at you and sees you as uncommon. God looks at you and sees you as extra special apart from any creation he has ever made. God looks at you and sees you as particular.
You are so special to God that he is extra careful to pardon your iniquity and overlook your transgressions.
You are so special to God that he does not retain his anger against you forever, he is slow to anger but quick in forgiveness.
You are so special to God that he enjoys lavishing you in his unfailing love.
As you go throughout your week, reflect on this devotional and how special you are to God. Remember that you were specifically chosen by Christ to bear witness to his name and partake in his kingdom. God has gone and will continue to go great lengths to show the depth of his love
