Topic: You Are Ordained For Glory [Tuesday February 6, 2018]
“But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:” 1 Corinthians 2:7 (KJV)
You see, God has ordained you for glory. There are things already inside you. Before you were born, God ensured that He packaged things in you for your glory. You are not packaged for shame. So, if you are experiencing shame right now in any area of your life, I come to tell you that it is not the plan of God. Don’t expect or anticipate anything like shame because you are called to a life of glory. Always look inward! What you have inside you is greater. 1 John 4:4 says: “……Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world”. You have something that the devil is afraid of and it is right inside you.
God said concerning them in Genesis 11:6: “…….. will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do”. Have you sat down to imagine what you will become or what you want to be in life? Have you imagined how your life will end? Have you sat down to imagine how you will come out of your situation? ‘Whatever they have imagined’! Your outside body may be small but what is inside is bigger. You may not have a big frame like I do. You may look small from the natural standpoint but inside you is a king. The problem we have always had is that we are not looking at the inward man. The bible says for though the outward man perishes the inward is renewed day by day.
You are brilliant and very smart because you have the mind of Christ. You are made in the image of God. Christ in you is the hope of glory. Christ the Anointed One with all His glory and with all his wisdom is in you. The day you receive Christ as Lord and Saviour everything changed. In fact, every negative thing about you was levelled out. That is the power of the new creation! Alleluia!
