But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvellous light; – I Peter 2:9
I Peter 2:9-10
Every believer is a peculiar treasure; you belong to royalty. You are Different! To be envied! A special breed! You are clothed in God’s holiness and you are a reflection of His glory on earth. God chose you and made you unique; and you need to be possessed with the mentality of your uniqueness. Acts 10:15 says, “…Don’t call common that which God has cleansed.”
You were not mass-produced, neither are you like any mere man on the street, if you don’t know it, ask the devil, he knew that Paul was in the same class as Jesus (Acts 19:15). Ignorance of this can make you live cheaply; harassed by any ‘jobless demon,’ but that shouldn’t be your lot in life.
In Colossians 3:12, you are called the ‘ELECT OF GOD’ – which suggests that, when there was an election, God voted for you – Hey, you are exclusive and nobody can lay a charge against you! (Romans 8:33).
Don’t belittle yourself, you are the King’s kid – you are qualified to have a good life; rich in quality and super-abundant in quantity. You are qualified for joy, peace, soundness, wholeness, prosperity, a godly and goodly spouse, etc., Jesus paid for it all, don’t mock God by letting Satan deceive you to think otherwise (John 10:10).
Your case is different! You have been born again into the supernatural life, so, expect to walk in perpetual victory over satan’s manipulations. Yes!, you have been taken out of the kingdom of darkness into God’s marvelous light. Therefore, it does not matter what is happening around you or how many things are falling apart around you – live in the consciousness that your case is different; and continue to proclaim the praises of Him who branded you uniquely!
“I boldly declare that I am peculiar not common; therefore, I reject every form of sub-standard living. I lay hold of the super-abundant life in Christ Jesus. Henceforth, I choose wholeness and soundness in all that concerns me; the totality of my life will be a declaration of the praises of the God who called me out of darkness into His marvelous light!”
