We do not choose our parents. We are born into a family without any say in the matter. However, when it comes to being born into the family of God it is a different matter.
John 1:12-13 says, “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”
John 15:16 says that we did not choose God, but He chose us. Here is the first verse of a new song called Love Sonnet.
Precious life. I chose you before the foundation of the world. You are Mine, irrevocably Mine. Don’t seek any other. You are Mine for eternity. I called you from the womb. Your name is always on My lips. You are My fragrance sweet. Like a flower bud opening. Enter in come enter into My love.
1 John 3:1 says, “Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!…” Romans 8:16-17 says, “The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs–heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.”
What marvelous truth! Everything that God is, is ours by faith. 1 Peter 1:4-5 says, “To an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away reserved in heaven for you, who are KEPT by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”
We enter into His fullness through putting our faith in Jesus’ finished work on the cross. We are sealed for eternity (Ephesians 1:13). Ephesians 1:7 says that we are redeemed by His blood, forgiven our sins, according to the riches of His grace. Verse 8 Amplified says, “Which He lavished upon us…”
The verses we saw yesterday using these words: satiate, which means filled to the full, abundance, fullness, satisfied, exceedingly abundantly, filled and flooded, are all words that describe the Lord’s goodness to us.
There is no lack in God’s economy. Psalm 34:9-10 says, “Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him. The young lions lack and suffer hunger; but those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.”
