Topic — You Are Not Ordinary: You Are Royalty! [Wednesday November 29, 2017]
“And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.” (Revelation 5:10 KJV)
The reason the devil runs riot over you is because you have refused to behave like royalty. You refused to behave like one even though you are. As royalty, there are places you shouldn’t go and vocabularies you shouldn’t use. There are environments you shouldn’t be found in because you are royalty. The enemy will defeat you if you don’t know who you are. As a royalty, there are ways you cannot talk. And there are movies you cannot watch because you don’t want your mind twisted. You must live your life by virtue of who you are. You are Royalty!
For too long, the Church has been a misrepresentation of Royalty and the Kingdom of God. We don’t have the authority that goes with royalty because we think we are ordinary. No, you are not ordinary. You are royalty. You are not like every other person. Carry yourself with the dignity of who you are. Square your shoulders, raise your head in pride, you are royalty.
God has elevated you, why are you reducing yourself? Take responsibility for your life. The only assignment we have is to take responsibility. Stand in the authority of the kingdom and take charge. Refuse to be common. Don’t let your life be a refuse dump. Don’t reduce yourself to a common person. Beloved, you are special to heaven. When you realise that you are royalty, then you will realise that it is not everything commoners do that you can partake in. The unfortunate thing is that the world is very much aware of our status and envy it, yet we, the redeemed of the Lord do not know it.
The time has come. Take your place and reign over every situation in your life. Speak to yourself over and over again. Declare it. Write it on your walls, stick it on your mirror. Keep it in view until you become one with it.
