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 marvelous light; – I Peter 2:9
I Peter 2:9-10
Every Born Again child of God 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.
You are 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.” Should someone we consider important, e.g., a top Politian, come to our house, we will bring out the best dishes and cutleries to serve them. Meanwhile, the ‘Christ-follower’ is the real king and priest, however, we have unknowingly branded him as “COMMON” (Revelations 1:6).
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. Ignorance of this can make you live and die 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’ – that means 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 a 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 & goodly spouse, etc,. The price has been paid, don’t mock God by letting Satan deceive you (John 10:10).
Your case is different! You are supernatural so you are not supposed to suffer what natural people suffer. It does not matter what is happening around you or how many things are falling apart around you – your case is different, you are a rare species!
Psalm 139:13-16, Isaiah 60:2 & Acts 19:15
“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 Jesus died to give me. I choose wholeness and soundness in every aspect of my life, I proclaim there shall be nothing missing or broken in my life, in Jesus name.”
