Re:Verse passage – 1 Peter 1:1-9 (day seven) 

…who are chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, by the sanctifying work of the Spirit. 

Don’t you love being chosen? Do you remember the feeling when you lined up at recess and one by one people were chosen to be on the different teams? Do you remember waiting through all the picks just hoping you weren’t the last one chosen? We all wanted to be wanted. The same is true today. We hope our boss chooses us for a special assignment. We want to be chosen for the grant we applied for. We want to be wanted. We want to be chosen!

Before time even existed, God chose you! The creator of the universe chose you to be a part of His immaculate plan. He chose you to partner with Him in His ministry. God wanted you and continues to want you even when you don’t want Him. The next time you are passed up or forgotten, rest assured that you were already chosen for something greater.
