Romans 8:29,30 “For God knew His people in advance, and He chose them to become like His Son, so that His Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.”
Before God created the world, He already had you on His mind. He already loved you. He already decided you would be in His family. He already wanted to show you His goodness so He decided He wanted to live in you through His Holy Spirit; He would empower you to become like His Son, Jesus Christ. As you yield your self to His will and His desires everyday, not by your own strength, but on His; trusting Him to do His work in you, you will become more and more like Him. As your mind becomes renewed, you will think like Him, talk like Him, touch the world around you, bring a little bit of heaven to earth through you. His plan was to have many children on earth, Jesus being our elder brother. He wants to have many, like Jesus, on the earth.
“Abba, I surrender my self to You today. Give me a greater desire to know You, to live for You, so that through me You can touch the world around me. Let my heart be filled with Your love so that I don’t only see my needs and wants but I’ll be sensitive to those around me as well. And so just like Jesus, I say: let Your will be done on earth as it is being done in heaven. Amen!”
