Topic: You Are Not Ordinary [Monday November 13, 2017]
“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people;…” (1 Peter 2:9 KJV)
When a child is born into A Royal Household, he is automatically a prince. It does not matter that the child is still messing up himself, he is in the line of royalty. He may not be able to do anything for himself immediately, but by reason of birth, he is a Royal Highness. He is addressed as the Prince. He is a prince because he was born that way.
Child of God, you are not ordinary. When you were born into the kingdom of God, you were born into royalty. No matter what satanic kingdom thinks, it does not change your status. Whatever your background is, it does not matter. The most important thing in the Spirit is that you are a prince or a princess. Just as it is done for an earthly prince, everything has already been put in place for you. The devil is lying to you that you are not who God says you are. Don’t accept it! You are not ordinary. You see, when you call yourself ordinary, you are insulting God. You are saying in effect that God is ordinary. Don’t you realize that our heavenly Father is the King of all kings and the Lord of all lords? He is the Monarch of the universe; how then can you be ordinary.
For too long the church has been a misrepresentation of our royalty and consequently, we find it difficult to function in authority. And so the devil is running roughshod over you because you have refused to behave like royalty.
When you truly understand what royalty is, then you will know that there are ways you ought to conduct yourself. There are books you cannot read. There is a way you ought to talk. Why? You are royalty. You are not common. You are going somewhere to explode in righteousness. See yourself as royalty. And you will get to the top. No power will be able to abort your destiny.
