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.

What if the president called you and invited you to spend the week with him?  What an honor that would be, to be hand-picked by the president of the United States. You know what would be an even greater honor?  To be hand-picked by God!  To be adopted into His family!  
1 Peter 2:9 tells us, "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."
Knowing you are chosen by God is a difference maker!  You can go into that job interview knowing you are royalty, knowing you have immense favor from the creator of the universe.  
I love the book of Esther because she knew her identity and ended up changing the course of history for her people.  Esther 4:14 says, "For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”
Just like Esther, you too, have a divine purpose!  You were chosen to live in the world at this specific time so that you could be the light in the darkness!  
You are a child of God, hand picked by Him.
You are chosen, and created with a purpose!

Blessings,
