His Chosen Ones?

by Spurgeon

In the very beginning, when this great universe was in the mind
of God, like unborn forests in a cup of acorns; long before the
echoes walked in the quiet solitudes; before the mountains
were brought forth; and long before the light flashed through
the sky, God loved His chosen men and women. Before there
were men and women--when the heavens were not yet
fanned by an angel's wing; when space itself did not an exist;
when there was nothing but God alone; even then, in that
loneliness of Deity, and in that deep quiet and depth, His heart
moved for His chosen ones. Their names were written on His
heart, and they became dear to His soul.

For this God is our God for ever and ever;
he will be our guide even to the end. Psalm 48:14
