I have chosen you

For I have chosen you and
will not throw you away.
Don't be afraid, for I am with you.
Do not be dismayed, for I am
your God. I will strengthen you. I will
help you. I will uphold you with
my victorious right hand.
Is 41:9b-10

I was reminded of this verse this weekend at a Women of Faith Conference. As I listened to several women share their testimonies I was reminded that as His daughters we have been chosen by our Father in Heaven. Regardless of where you are today, you are His. He loves you, and He has not thrown you away.

Don't we often feel "thrown away" or rejected, or unwanted? That is a lie the enemy loves to tells us. But God says I want you! I have chosen you! When everyone else fails you remember it is God our Father who strenghtens us, He will help us and He will uphold us. HE IS OUR GOD! And HE wants a relationship with us!
