What do you mean, it’s not about ME?! — Chosen Committed Complete

Several years back, I did a Beth Moore Bible study called, The Inheritance. The theme verses were Psalms 16:5-6. That psalm was central to last week’s blog. Long before I participated in that study, I studied the inheritance of the Israelites in the promised land. I looked into that over a decade ago, because of something I thought God was telling me. I was crying to God about my singleness, and about being passed over by men. My heart heard Him clearly say, “It isn’t that you haven’t been chosen by men; I have set you apart.” No words should be credited to God, unless they can be found in His written Word, and after that, I began seeing the phrase, set apart, all over in Scripture. What was most special to me, was when God told Moses that He had set the Levites apart. They would not have an inheritance in the promised land, but rather, God was their inheritance. What comfort that brought to me! God had set me apart for an inheritance that was going to look different from other people’s. God was my inheritance. It seemed to line up with what Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 7; being single meant that I could focus on God. He had set me apart for a special relationship.

What do you mean, it’s not about ME?!
