Topic: A Life Of Excellence [14th September 2017]
According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue (2 Peter 1:3).
God has called you to a life of glory and excellence. He’s not trying to do it, He’s already done it. It’s not a promise. “Virtue” in the scripture above means excellence. God didn’t call us to shame; He didn’t call us to pain; He didn’t call us to sickness, reproach, destruction or judgment; He called us to glory and excellence. Your response, therefore, should be, “Thank you, blessed Father, I’m excellent and full of glory! I do excellent things.”
Perhaps you were headed in the direction of shame, there’s a reprogramming taking place in your spirit right now. The Word will propel you from shame, into glory and excellence. Walk in the knowledge of who you are. Inside you is the power of God, His divine ability to rise, increase and prosper; to do excellent things. He has appointed and positioned you to exude excellence. You no longer have to strive for excellence.
You have the responsibility to transform your life from glory to glory; you have the responsibility to manage your mind to produce excellence. That’s what the renewing of your mind is about (Romans 12:2). God expects this of you, because He has put the ability within you. He wants to be glorified through your progress and success; through the excellence of your personality.
Dear Father, I thank you, for you’ve made my life beautiful, and made me excellent all the way. You’re glorified in and through me today, by my progress and success as a result of your Word at work in me. Thank you for making me the epitome of your righteousness, and vent for your glory, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
