The ONE THING for today

Cheap or Chosen

  • Song of Solomon 2:10 (NKJV) My beloved spoke, and said to me: “Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.

I have an old pocket knife that is battered and worn.  It still cuts butter (if I microwave the butter first!).  To anyone else it would be called cheap; to me it is called chosen.untitled

Two things for today:

  1. First, don’t allow other people’s estimation of you to be the value you put upon yourself—go with God’s estimation.
  2. Second, since you have been chosen by God, be with Him and be for Him.

Today begins our second week of 40-days of prayer & fasting and will be a rare “snow day” for many of us southerners in the Charlotte, NC area.  What a perfect opportunity to steal away for a while just to be with the One who loves us.

The Lord did not set His love on you nor choose you because you were more in number than any other people, for you were the least of all peoples; but because the Lord loves you… (Deuteronomy 7:7-8, NKJV)
