CHOSEN BY THE KING
I have chosen you to do something great for my kingdom. You are not just a boy—you are a child of the King, and I am your Father in heaven. I want you to know that I am the same God who chose King David when he was just a little boy, and I have chosen you to show the world who I am. I will give you all you will ever need to conquer and accomplish the mission I have for you. Never forget who you are or who I am, and you will become a strong and mighty warrior for me.
Your King and Father in heaven
For you are a people holy to the LORD your God. The LORD your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession. DEUTERONOMY 7:6
Help me to remember that you chose me and I am yours. Please use each day of my life to prepare me to be great in your kingdom. Thank you for picking me out to be a warrior for you! In Jesus’s name I pray, amen.
A PLAN AND A PURPOSE
My Mighty Warrior,
I have a powerful plan for you, my son. I know you are just a young boy, but so was King David when I chose him to become the future king. Little did he know while he was faithfully protecting and caring for sheep that I was preparing him to protect and care for my people one day. Right now I have placed people in your life and given you special jobs to prepare you for your purpose in life. Be faithful in the little things and I will make you great in my kingdom.
Your King, who has a plan for you
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Help me to work hard and be faithful at all the things you give me to do. Give me a heart that wants to do the
things you planned out for me long ago. I know I’m still young, but I am mighty because of you! In Jesus’s name I pray, amen.
