You, Christian, are Chosen as His Choice Vessels

August 3, 2011

In Ps 60:7-8, David says the tribes of Israel are “mine”, “mine”, “my helmet”, “my scepter”. But the foreign nations, his enemies are “his washbasin”, a place to “cast my shoe”, a place he triumphs over.

All who are in Christ are the true Israel. That’s you who believe in Jesus. You are his chosen instrument. Your value is that he has bestowed his glory and strength on you by making you His and using you for His good purposes and plans. You are useful to Him, specifically for His plans to conquer all His enemies (which goes beyond mere physical enemies to sin and death itself). Go conquer! God in the strength of His might! Let that purpose consume your thoughts and desires.

“With God we shall do valiantly; it is he who will tread down our foes.” Ps 60:12

And that through His people as we just read!
