“And when Samuel saw Saul, the LORD said to him, ‘There he is,
the man of whom I spoke to you. This one shall reign over My people.’
(1 Samuel 9:17
“And on whom is all the desire of Israel? Is it not on you and on all
your father’s house?” And Saul answered and said, ‘Am I not
a Benjamite, of the smallest of the tribes of Israel, and my family
the least of all the families of the tribe of Benjamin?
Why then do you speak like this to me?’”
(1 Samuel 9:20, 21)

Chosen by God

I choose you, not because of your
status in the community,
not because of your education,
or good looks, nor
intelligence of mind.
I choose you because
you’ve chosen Me
to be your God,
to take charge of your life;
the One on whom you completely rely.
I choose you because you know
you can do nothing without Me.
Fear not because of your own limitations.
I overcome those with My presence
in you. I give you a new heart,
filling you with all knowledge,
all power and might and love,
that when people look at you,
they will see Me and will
turn and follow in My ways.
