But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. 1 Peter 2:9
We are all special children of the most high God. Each one of us carries a fire within us that was meant to expose darkness and draw others to the light. So what keeps that from happening? What causes us to hide our light?
I believe the answer to that is, we have been deceived into believing we are not special and that there is nothing of value in us or about us. We simply exist in this world. Our true identity has been stolen from us and the truth of the power we hold has been hidden from us.
So many have taken their own lives because they feel they are of no value to anyone, but the truth is, God doesn’t see us like that. He loves us so deeply and has purpose for each of us. We must simply believe it, and for some, that is the hardest thing to do. The voices in their head drowns out the truth, hammering them with accusations that make them feel worthless.
The truth is, we are all great in Gods eyes. There is not one who is more anointed, more gifted, more beautiful or lovely. All of us as Gods children, possess the same value in Gods eyes. Some may have a college degree, while others may be a high school dropout. That does not change anything! In Gods eyes we all have the ability to have relationship with Him, learn from Him and do great exploits.
Don’t allow that slick and slimy devil to distort the truth of who you are and what you possess. Truth be told, he’s always feared you! He knows that when you discover who you truly are, you will be unstoppable! He fears the power that you possess and will do everything he can to keep you from walking in that power. He knows that if you truly believe, all things will be possible for you. Why do you think he fights so hard to keep things from you and to keep you from spending time in the Book that will show you the truth?
You are so much bigger than he is! You are so much more powerful than he is! Your words alone can send him and his minions running with their tails between their legs. Believe it! God does.
