Topic: Divine Election

Texts: Romans 9 vs 11. 1 Corinthians 9 vs 24


"For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth. It was said unto her, the elder shall serve the younger. As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated"- Romans 9 vs 11-13.

The above is the mystery of God's election! God is sovereign and His decisions are indisputable. Abraham became a friend of God just by the election of the Almighty God. David became a man after the heart of God because of election. Jacob was loved even in the womb because of divine election!

So, what is divine election? Divine election is simply the preference of God for an individual, situation, nation, business, career and other circumstances of life by the exercise of His will and perfect knowledge of the future. God knows the end even before the beginning! So, His decisions are based on superior wisdom and facts.

The Bible says that "Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize?"( 1 Corinthians 9 vs 24a). Who then determines the winner? Who gives the prize? The answer is God and how does he choose the winner? By His election! The Bible is full of such accounts! God will elect you for victory today in Jesus' name.

An important factor of divine election is grace. The good thing about this is that we can ask for it and be given. Another factor is favour. This can also be prayed for and be given. The mercy of God can also berth divine election and our redemption eminently qualifies us for it. Today, grace, favour and mercy of God will combine in your life in Jesus' name.

The Bible says that while Jesus was on earth, he " increased in wisdom, and stature, and in favour with God and man"( Luke 2 vs 52). This means that everyone who desires divine election, must increase in wisdom, stature and favour with God and man. God will fulfil all these in your life in Jesus' name.

How can God vote for you? How can you be His candidate? The answer is simple! Pray as if the whole of your life depends on it( Luke18:1), believe God as if that is all you need in life( 2 Chronicles 20: 20),give your utmost for the work of the kingdom( Luke 6:38), obey God like never before( Isaiah 1:19) and refuse to be discouraged by anything( Romans 8:28).

Brethren, let your faith rise today! Your redemption is a total package. Divine election is your inheritance because God says that "you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people, that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light"( 1 Peter 2:9).
What do you desire that God should elect you for? Go ahead and pray to Him. Everything is available in God. His possibilities are endless. Don't condemn yourself and don't limit yourself. Look at the future only with the eyes of faith and you will see only gold and joy. There is no reason for God to keep you alive if He does not have something to offer you! So, look up and praise Him because you are a wonder of His greatness! Shalom.
