We are GOD’s possessions: Deuteronomy 7:6
What makes us holy or GOD’s possession?
The fact that GOD; HIMSELF chose us and has set us apart as HIS valued possession. We belong to GOD when we accept JESUS and have faced that JESUS redeemed us from our sins. If we don’t speak with our heavenly FATHER who cherishes us with all HIS heart; we won’t turn to HIM when a problem pops up. If we don’t let the Word of GOD shape our mind and heart; our mind and heart will be vulnerable to the temptations of the devil; the world and the flesh.
We are GOD’s prized possession we are the apple of GOD’s eye. We behave inconsistently as GOD’s people because we don’t know or understand who we are to GOD. We behave consistently as GOD’s people when we understand that we belong to GOD and it does not matter that we don’t understand or know why HE desires to have us. We do understand that we want HIM. Each of us are an individual person just as GOD is an individual person and we can build a friendship with GOD in which we become more and more like the friend who chose us and made us somebody. GOD will restore us back to HIMSELF if we will only allow HIM to do so.
