Chosen Not Forsaken // Wednesday Wisdom // August 22

Lord, I am who YOU say I am…I have had to repeat this proclamation of truth over and over again recently. For me, it is one of the hardest truths to grasp; that I am still EVERYTHING God says that I am. After all of my failures, sins, doubts, fear….I am still chosen. I could just cry (and I do often!). Do you believe what God think of you? Do you believe that you are still chosen and not forsaken? No matter what? I will be honest and say there are times I doubt. How can He still love me after everything? When I turned away and did not obey? Our hearts and minds cannot wrap our heads around the fact that His love is that great and His grace is that deep. He knew our deep sins and how much we needed a Savior when He sent His son Jesus to die for us on the cross. He knew we needed HIM!

Trying to find truth in today’s world when our eyes are not fixed on God is like walking around blind with no senses. You can try and try and try to find your way but you will stumble time and time again. We do not find our selves in other people; a man, a woman, a spouse, a friend…we find it in Him. I cannot rely on Brody to show me and convince me to see myself how God sees me. Yes, He leads me…but I must accept it. God loves every fiber of your being. Those imperfections make you unique and your failures do not define you.

All over His Word, you will find that God says: You are accepted. You are a friend of God. His heir. You are completely forgiven! You are secure. There is no hole too deep that God cannot reach down and grab you out of. His love will always surpass my understanding, and I am so incredibly grateful for it! In a world that has turned it’s face on God & Hope, why would you let it tell you who you are? Do not let the lies win! Be strong in your faith and remind the world who God says YOU ARE.

 

VERSE 1
Who am I that the highest King
Would welcome me
I was lost but He brought me in
Oh His love for me
Oh His love for me

CHORUS
Who the Son sets free
Oh is free indeed
I’m a child of God
Yes I am

VERSE 2
Free at last
He has ransomed me
His grace runs deep
While I was a slave to sin
Jesus died for me
Yes He died for me

CHORUS 2
Who the Son sets free
Oh is free indeed
I’m a child of God
Yes I am
In my Father’s house
There’s a place for me
I’m a child of God
Yes I am

BRIDGE
I am chosen
Not forsaken
I am who You say I am
You are for me
Not against me
I am who You say I am
