October 25th 2015 – Why Would God Choose Us (Part 4)

images-311

Brothers, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. 27 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28 He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things–and the things that are not–to nullify the things that are, 29 so that no one may boast before him. 30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God–that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 31 Therefore, as it is written: “Let him who boasts boast in the Lord.(1 Corinthians 1:26-31)

I love the way this verse speaks of US. Yes, not many of us had everything going for us, but God still chose us for this great salvation.  As we continue to look at different people in the Word of God that maybe had it, then lost it, and then got it back, I think of Joseph. Here’s a young man that is living a good life, enjoying the blessing of being his father’s favorite.  Yet this put him at odds with his brothers.

Many of you know his story but here is a quick synopsis of it.  He is the son of Jacob, born from the wife that Jacob truly loved.  At this point, He is their firstborn son and Jacob distinguishes Joseph by giving him a special multi-colored coat.  His brothers get jealous and sell him into slavery.  From there he is working for Potiphar and receives favor from God.

He is lifted up as a slave, and then Potiphar’s wife (Potiphar – Is captain of the palace guard) gets eyes for him, and when Joseph says no, she cries rape.  So he gets thrown into prison, but God is still with Him. Then Pharaoh has a dream and Joseph interprets it and gets lifted to the place of second in all of Egypt. 

So, as we can see today, if we stay faithful to God, no matter who lets us down, even our family, God has His eyes on us and will get us out of the pit and lift us to a high place.  No matter who hurt you, forgive them, and let God take you to the place that He has prepared for you.

Prayer

Father God, Today, I forgive those who have hurt me and I thank you Father, for taking me to a higher place, a good place of blessings in you. We love and praise You, In Jesus precious name, Amen

    “Do not think I have come to bring peace on the earth, I did not come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to alienate a son/daughter against his/her father, a son/daughter against his/her mother, and a son/daughter-in-law against his/her father/mother-in-law. And a man/women’s enemies will be those of his/her own family. He/she who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he/she who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. (This applies to husbands and wives also). And he/she who does not take up his/her cross (dieing to this life/world) and follow Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his/her life will lose it, and he/her who loses his/her life for My sake will find it. He/she who recieves you recieves Me, and he/she who recieves Me recieves Him who sent Me.”
    ” Gracious Holy Father, may You empower us to give up to You All as a living sacrifice, but not give up YESHUA-JESUS at All cost, even my life unto death in Christ we ask, and thank You now how You Will answer. Amen.”
