Chosen! (2 Thessalonians 2:13-14)

Today’s scripture: 2 Thessalonians 2:13-14

God is omniscient. He knows all. He is omnipresent, everywhere at once. He always has been and will always be. And since He is without time as we know it, He knows every decision we’ll ever make—including our decision to follow Him.

And so verses like today’s where we’re told He “has chosen you from the beginning” make complete sense to me. Some people say this contradicts the idea of free will, but it doesn’t really. God knows who His followers will be, so He has chosen us for salvation from our sins and ongoing sanctification.

It’s such a joy knowing that I’ve been in God’s heart and mind always. He knows me intimately, and He loves me deeply. I am His chosen daughter, and I am blessed.

So very blessed.
