“For He delivered us and saved us and called us with a holy calling [a calling that leads to a consecrated life—a life set apart—a life of purpose], not because of our works [or because of any personal merit—we could do nothing to earn this], but because of His own purpose and grace [His amazing, undeserved favor] which was granted to us in Christ Jesus before the world began [eternal ages ago],” 2 Timothy 1:9, Amplified.
My sister, you’ve been saved and called with a holy calling. It is not according to your works or lack of works that God has called you, but according to His own purpose and grace. He gave you a purpose in Christ Jesus, and it was His plan before the world began. This means even on your worst day, you are called by God. Even when you fall and make mistakes, you are called by God. When everything is going wrong, you are called by God, and He is not taking it back. His gifts and callings are irrevocable (see Romans 11:29). He already considered everything when He called you. So be encouraged today, my friend. Rest in knowing there is nothing that can happen to you, and there is nothing you can do to make God remove His great calling on your life. His calling of you is precious, and so are you.
Prayer: Father, thank you for speaking directly to my heart in such a loving way. Thank you for calling me. You already know about every struggle, every hurt, every fear, and weakness, and you still call me. Thank you. I am dear and precious to you, and Father, you are dear and precious to me. Amen.
