Daily Devotional for August 24, 2005

August 24

BIBLE MEDITATION: ?According as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love.? Ephesians 1:4

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: The church, as the bride of Christ, was in the heart and mind of God before the foundation of the world. In the same way, Abraham sent one of his servants to find a bride for his son Isaac and she didn?t even know anything about it (see Genesis 24). There she was, not dreaming that two very important persons were holding a conversation about her. They were making plans for her. And in Genesis 24:14, we learn that she was divinely appointed. She had already been chosen in the heart and mind of God. I like to call this the predetermination of the bride. In the secret counsel halls of the Almighty, a conference was held. A bride was chosen. He set His affection upon us. Isn?t it wonderful that we were chosen in Him before the foundation of the world?

ACTION POINT: What a glorious truth for you to share with someone today who may be feeling like they?re not worth much. Ask God to lead you to that someone right now.
