God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. – Ephesians 1:5
We all have days where we feel like no one really cares about us. We might feel ignored or misunderstood and just wish that someone really cared or understood us. On days like that, you can get encouraged by reading today’s Bible verse. This verse shows us that God had a plan in mind for you. God was not okay with you being far away from Him, so He chose to adopt you into his family. You are now a child of God, and with that relationship with God, you get some awesome benefits.
One of the greatest benefits is the ability to know God. You can talk directly to God and let Him shower you with His great love for you. This verse shows us that God didn’t choose you because He had no other choice. He didn’t have to choose you, but He chose you anyway. Choosing you made God happy. He was excited to include you into His family.
God loves you and wants you to be a part of His family. So on those days when you feel excluded or like no on really cares, you can remember that God does. He choose you and He’s glad He did!
