Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – Eph 1:5

In Christ Devotion For Youth And Teens

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 (NLT)

Have you ever been guilty of leaving a school project unfinished until the last possible moment? And then you’re in a panicked frenzy trying to finish up the night before? Maybe you even had to stay up all night to finish. I’ve had my share of last minute projects.

The great thing about God is that He didn’t wait last minute to bring us into His family. He wasn’t panicked and He didn’t have to stay up all night working on it. He had it planned for us in advance and it wasn’t something like a school project that He hated doing or dreaded. He wanted to do it and it gave Him pleasure.

If nothing else, this fact can really make us feel important. God wanted us and thought we were important enough to put a plan together to bring us into His family. He wanted to have a friendship and a relationship with you. When you get ahold of this truth, it can set you free. If you realize that God wanted you. He wanted a family with you. You aren’t an accident or a mistake. God planned ahead and made a way for you to know Him.
