But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light (1 Peter 2:9).
Observe our profound description in the verse we just read: we’re chosen, royal and peculiar; chosen to be the expression of God’s righteousness, and the manifestation of His glory in the earth. We’re God’s best, and there’s so much He has deposited within our spirits to bless the world with.
In Genesis 12:2, He said to Abram, “…I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing.” You’re the seed of Abraham, because the Bible says in Galatians 3:29 that “…if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed….” Therefore, not only are you blessed, you’re also a blessing. You carry the blessing with you. Everything you touch is blessed, as well as all those who are connected with you.
Contemplate for a moment on your peculiar attributes and heritage in Christ! The Bible says you’re God’s workmanship (Ephesians 2:10), His handiwork— crafted for excellence. You’ve been thoroughly furnished with everything you need to live victoriously and be an extraordinary success. So don’t try to be somebody else. Become satisfied with who you are, and with the fact that God loves you, and He’s happy to have you.
Furthermore, keep sowing the right seeds—the right words—into your personality; listen to, and endorse only words that inspire you, and build your confidence on who you are in Christ. God is confident and convinced about what He has made. He knows your true worth and your abilities. He knows that nothing is impossible with you. He has placed you over and above sickness, disease, poverty, failure, death and the devil. He has made you indestructible, for He has said no weapon fashioned against you shall prosper (Isaiah 54:17).
Believe these truths and live accordingly, so you can effectively live your best, and be all that God has destined you to be.
Dear Father, thank you for making me special; I’m glad to know how unique I am, and all that you’ve made me in Christ Jesus. I yield myself to you, to accomplish your purpose and perfect will for my life, to your glory and praise, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
