Isaiah 41:9

I brought you from the ends of the earth and called you from its farthest corners. I said to you: You are My servant; I have chosen you and not rejected you.

Sometimes we forget that God chose us first. We merely responded to His call. When He called us, He did so with a purpose in mind. He is on a mission and not just throwing out some great ideas to see if they will work for us. If He called us, He will surely use us and bless us in the process.

God knew just what it would take to get us to the point where we would surrender to His call. He put everything in place to move us in His direction. He brought us from the ends of the earth and the farthest corners from His perfect will in order to place us on track with Him. We can count on Him to see us through the rest of the journey.

We must also remember that we are His servants. We work for Him; He does not answer to us. When He gives an instruction, we are to follow it. While others may have rejected us and found us to be of no benefit to them, God has chosen us for a great purpose – to glorify His name. He will not discard us to try to figure out life on our own and just do the best we can. He will never leave us nor forsake us, and He keeps us close within His fold.

If you feel lost and alone, know for certain that God chose you. He is right there with you and will intervene on your behalf to make sure you fulfill all He has called you to do. You are His, and He has not rejected you, even if it seems others have. Their rejection just might the very thing that frees you to follow the path God designed for you all along. Rejection is direction, and God will use it to place you where you need to be. Trust Him today. He really is in control, and He has chosen to work with you. Be blessed!

Have a blessed day!
