“You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit …”
(John 15:16, NLT)
“I chose you …”. Keep these words as a wonderful reminder in your theology. It is not that you have gotten God, but that He has gotten you. God is at work bending, breaking, molding, and doing exactly as He chooses. And why is He doing it? He is doing it for only one purpose – that He may be able to say, “This is My man, and this is My woman.” We have to be in God’s hand, so that He can place others on the Rock, Jesus Christ, just as He has placed us.
He will do with you what He never did before His call came to you, and He will do with you what He is not doing with other people. Let Him have His way.
(from My Utmost For His Highest by Oswald Chambers)
