Topic: You Are Wired For Glory [Thursday September 14, 2017]
“And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,” (Romans 9:23 KJV)
When you refuse to see yourself as God sees you, you are failing to appropriate what God has done for you in Christ. Whenever you see yourself as flesh, you are limited and you miss the point. God does not see you as you are. He does not see you as a sinner or failure. No! He sees you in Christ because you have been “in-Christed!” When you made Jesus your Lord and Master, you became one with him in the spirit. Colossians 1:27 (KJV) says that “…Christ in you is the hope of glory.”
Simply put, Christ in you is the end of shame and embarrassment. Christ in you is the end of frustration, disappointment and failure. The problem is that you are not looking at the inward man. I come to remind you that God will do anything for the sake of Christ that is in you. Remember he quickened you, raised you up and made you sit with Christ in heavenly places far above principalities and powers. That is why you can never fail.
Child of God, you need to end the life of struggle now. There is a glory that God has reserved for you that will put you ahead of your contemporaries. God has deposited so much in you and until you come to terms with who you really are, you can’t enjoy his abundance. When Peter stepped on water, he achieved a feat that no man had ever done before. The glory of God upon your life is meant to showcase you to your world. Go out there and shine.
