James 1:18 NLT He chose to give birth to us by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his prized possession.
You are God’s prized possession. When you read that, is it easy to believe? When I look at this world and whats going on in the news, social media and entertainment, I am pretty sure people have not fully grasped what it means. It shows in their actions, expression, physical posture and words. Even our words, thoughts and actions can betray us, and knock us off the truth. Don’t let it steal any power away from flourishing in your God given identity. You are a prized possession.
Own it! Walk around in that confidence, strut in the powerful posture of who you are. I give you permission to say to someone today “Don’t you know who I am?” And say it with some moxie! Then encourage your brother and sister around you to do the same.
When you get to work, make your entrance to the office just like Sherman Hemsley. I hope with the double dutch part too!
Our real life started when he chose us. God’s word’s and true good news rang true in our ears, and we started a relationship with him. It wasn’t a random thing. God chose you! God wants you, not as his third for fourth choice when he was looking around for someone. He had a wonderful amazing destiny filled plan to give you new life. Please know deep down inside, that God chose you. From the day that you were born and given a beautiful name, God was weaving a wonderful plan for your life. You are not a mistake. Embrace that wonderful piece of truth as well, you are God’s possession. He chose us, and he owns us.
There is no other master I would rather be a servant to. No king is greater, wiser and compassionate that our God. I have a comfort in knowing that I am a loyal subject to the true ruler and king of the universe.
Friend: enjoy your identity. Have fun in it, rejoice in it.
Strengthen your heart and mind against the lies that try and tell us otherwise. Let the words flow over you, all morning, noon and night.
I want to encourage you, if you really struggle with negative inner thoughts, scripture memory is the only weapon for that battle.
Burn the words and truth into your heart and mind.
Let’s proclaim the truth today!
