SCRIPTURAL FOCUS: But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light: which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. 1Peter 2:9-10 KJV
TODAY’S THOUGHT: “God designed man to shine and manifest His glory.”
God does not involve Himself with things that won’t bring Him praise and glory, every act and move of God is accompanied with His glory. Everything He created was a display of His glorious invention. God created man and empowered man to succeed under His guidance. The greatest challenge is not everybody knows that God wants them to be significant, well and happy. They think and assume that greatness is for some certain class of people. No dearly beloved, once you realize that you are designed to function like God, life will be rewarding and enjoyable. God took out time to create man and release the blessings upon Him, but the enemy has hidden this truth from a lot of people because they lack the knowledge of it. You cannot claim and possess what you don’t know exists in your name until you find out. And you can only find out by studying your Bible daily.
In Isaiah 55:11 the word of God says…“So shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth; it shall not return to me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” These kinds of light from God’s word are the kind of bullet that increases your ferocity and audacity at the place of prayer. God did not create a weakling who is at the mercies of the devil He created you to thread upon satan’s head and come out victoriously unharmed Luke 10:19. According to today’s verses there are major things God listed: 1. Chosen generation. 2. A royal priesthood. 3. A holy nation. 4. A peculiar people. All of these blessings are accessible if you carry out the responsibility of living a holy life. Living righteously is what will distinct you and make you peculiar to God in order to show forth His glory.
The real you is a perfect reflection of God, you were made in the image and likeness of God.
To be partaker in the promises of God, you must be willing to live a holy life and shun all wickedness and practices that doesn’t glorify God in your life.
Receive grace to connect into the fullness of God for your life and mercy for divine enablement to run away from sin in Jesus name.
