Imagine standing at the entrance of an ancient, hidden temple. You've heard tales about the wonders within, and you've finally found the way. This is what it feels like when you start realizing the concept of being chosen by God. As Ephesians 1:4 says, "He chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him." Being chosen by God is not about being part of an elite club or winning a divine lottery. It's more like embarking on a journey that continuously shapes your heart and soul. This article is your treasure map, leading you through the signs that you are chosen by God - transforming behavior and experiencing His presence. Let’s put on our explorer hats and dive in!

Sign 1: Transforming Behavior

1.1 Understanding the Gradual Transformation 

Imagine waking up one day to find you’ve turned into a butterfly. Sounds absurd, right? Likewise, the transformation that comes with being chosen by God isn't an overnight metamorphosis. It’s a process where your thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors gradually align with God's teachings. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!". Like a sculptor chipping away at a block of marble, the unnecessary bits are slowly removed until a beautiful statue is revealed.

1.2 Desiring a Righteous, Holy, and Pleasing Life 

You know how when you really admire someone, you start picking up their habits and mannerisms? Now imagine that on a spiritual level. This desire to live a righteous life is like a small flame that turns into a roaring fire. You’ll start to see things differently. The grey areas between right and wrong become clearer. 1 Peter 1:16 reminds us to "Be holy, for I am holy". Your decisions, actions, and even your silent thoughts start revolving around pleasing God, like a compass that always points north.

1.3 Genuine Remorse and Commitment to Avoid Sin 

Do you remember that sinking feeling when you realized you hurt someone you love? Now multiply that feeling. When you're chosen by God, sinning feels like betraying a dear friend. It's as if your heart is clothed in sensitivity toward what's wrong. Psalm 38:18 says, "I confess my iniquity; I am troubled by my sin". This isn't about shame or guilt, but a genuine desire to make amends and avoid repeating the mistake. It’s like dropping your favorite dish and picking up every piece to try to fix it.

1.4 Shifting Desires Towards a Godly Path 

When your heart is set on God, your desires start to change like autumn leaves. What once appealed to you might seem less important, and new, wholesome desires take root. Psalm 37:4 says, "Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart." Whether it’s helping others, spreading love, or seeking justice, your desires begin to reflect the qualities of a godly life.

Sign 2: Experiencing God's Presence

2.1 The Nature of the Relationship Between God and Believers 

Imagine having a direct line to the wisest, most loving being in existence. That’s the relationship God offers. It’s not a far-off, impersonal deity, but an intimately close Father. Psalm 145:18 says, "The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth." Your heart becomes a sanctuary where you can experience God’s presence, like a home with an open-door policy for your closest family and friends.

2.2 Experiencing the Tangible Presence of God 

Think about the last time you felt utterly at peace. Was it watching a sunset, hearing a child's laughter, or maybe during a moment of deep reflection? These moments are like whispers from God. James 4:8 assures us, "Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you." Whether through prayer, worship, or quiet reflection, you begin to recognize these divine moments as signs of His presence. It's like tuning into a radio frequency where God's voice is the sweetest melody.

2.3 Enduring Trials Through God's Closeness 

Think of the toughest moment in your life. Now imagine a guiding hand leading you through the storm. That’s what God’s presence feels like during trials. Isaiah 43:2 says, "When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you." His closeness provides the strength and wisdom to overcome the waves that life throws your way.

2.4 Recognizing and Fostering Intimacy with God 

The most beautiful relationships are built on honesty, trust, and communication. That’s what God seeks with you. Jeremiah 29:13 says, "You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart." Foster this intimacy by pouring your heart out to Him, and quieting your mind to listen. It’s like stargazing; the more you watch, the more stars you see.


Imagine reaching the end of a storybook and feeling like you've lived a thousand lives. That's what knowing you're chosen by God feels like. Through the signs of transforming behavior and experiencing His presence, you’re invited into an ongoing adventure with the Author of Life. Don’t put the book down; your story is just beginning.
