1 Peter 2:9
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

I was wearing my “Chosen” shirt from “For Freedom Apparel” on my way home from visiting family in SC. I was at the airport and for the first time in my flying history, I did not have a seat. The plane was overbooked and I was on standby. There were about 10 of us waiting to hear who was going to New York and who was not. My name was called! One of the other standbys said, “Your shirt says it all, you're chosen”. Yes! Hearing her confirm who I am sounded so good!

Towards the end of the flight, the plane hit some turbulence. We were all bouncing as far as our seatbelt would allow and gripping the armrest. The lady next to me was not handling this well. Little screams, eyes shut and arms flailing all over. Chosen, I am chosen and nothing is going to happen to this plane. Complete peace. I was able to smile big, place my hand on her arm and tell her, it is going to be fine, nothing is going to happen to this plane!

Yep, we are chosen! We are favored! We are royal! We are God’s special possession! It’s so important to declare it every day.
“Bless the Lord, oh my soul and all that is within me bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, oh my soul and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities, who healeth all thy diseases, who redeemeth thy life from destruction, who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies, who satisfieth thy mouth with good things, so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”
Psalms 103:1-5
