Just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.
For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
2 Thessalonians 2:13-14
But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth, to which He called you by our gospel, for the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

A WORD FROM THE LORD:
I am the one who defines you. Your finesse, character, your entire being came into existence before the foundations of this world. And it is because I called it so....
YOU WERE DESIGNED FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS:
Do you know that you are created for such a time as this? Every part of your existence, your personal universe had been intricately designed by Him and only Him with you in mind. For the word of God states, ".We are beautifully and wonderfully made."(Psalm 139:14)
Every sinew, every cell was created, fashioned with a purpose of you in mind to create the most beautiful you that you are!
You are the most beautiful created being on this earth, with talents that God will use for His glory and with that thought. Don't you think that is worth celebrating our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ?
PRAISE HIM! FOR, GOD IS OUR FATHER AND JESUS CHRIST IS OUR LORD AND SAVIOR. GO, CELEBRATE GOD, FOR, YOU ARE HIS BEAUTIFUL CREATION. CELEBRATE YOURSELF, FOR, YOU WERE CHOSEN FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS. A WONDERFUL CREATION DESIGNED BY GOD HIMSELF. FOR, HE LOVES YOU SO!
For those who don't know Jesus as their Lord and Savior, I invite you into knowing Him. (Romans 10:9-14)
Prayer: Lord, Please forgive me of my sins. I ask you to come into my heart and cleanse me by your blood that was shed for me on the cross. Today, I renounce satan and all of my sins and decide to walk in your presence and power. Thank you, Father, for loving me and accepting me into your kingdom. In Jesus name, amen!
Now, once when you have prayed this prayer. I encourage you to purchase a bible, find a good church home and join a good bible study group. I encourage you to start with the book of Matthew and continue on. (Starter scriptures: Isaiah 43:25-26; 44:6-8; Isaiah 53; John 1)
Congratulations on your new birth! God blesses you!
