“Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures”.
The New Living Translation of the scripture above says “He chose to give birth to us by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his prized possession.” Of all the things in creation, we’re the first and the best; we’re the Father’s crown and beauty. This doesn’t describe everybody in the world, but we who are born again; those to whom He gave birth through His Word are His trophies; His excellent workmanship.
What makes us unique is that we have the same life with Him; we’re in His class of being. Of everything that He made, we’re the ones called into oneness with Him; the only ones who are in fellowship with Him in spirit and truth. Not even the angels have that privilege.
1 Peter 2:9 declares:
“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.” You were created for God’s glory. (Isaiah 43:7) says, “Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.”(1 Peter 2:9)
Not only have you been brought into the glory of God, you’re the effulgence of His glory, just like Jesus. The Bible says,
“He’s the brightness of God’s glory; the express image of His person”. Then in (1 John 4:17), we read that “…as he is, so are we in this world.”(Hebrews 1:3)
You’re God’s reproduction, His peculiar treasure. He said,
“For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the LORD hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.”(Deuteronomy 14:2)
The Holy Spirit re-echoes a similar truth through the Apostle Paul in (Titus 2:14), saying,
“Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.”(Titus 2:14)
Brethren, take pleasure in your uniqueness; you’re the Father’s pride; the apple of His eyes (Zechariah 2:8); His pearl of great price. Hallelujah!
PRAYER OF DECLARATION
I declare and decree that I am a product of the word, and an offspring of the Word, and my life is filled with the beauty of the Spirit! I declare that forever, God’s Word is settled in my life. It is settled in my career, settled in my finances, settled in my ministry, settled in my health, settled in my family, settled in all that concerns me in Jesus name!
Glory! My life is an endless stream of the miraculous because I live in the Name of Jesus. I’ve been given the power of attorney to use the Name of Jesus over the devil and the cohorts of hell, and dominate circumstances. I am seated together with Christ in the place of power; far above all principalities, power, might, dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world but also in that which is to come. Jesus is the Lord of my life; therefore, I live in dominion over sin, sickness and infirmities, and every opposing force, accusation or hindrance.
As authors, we are on top; irrespective of the perils and tribulations around the nations of the world. We live by the Word; thus, we are shielded and protected from all evil. We make progress at every count, for our life is like a tree planted by the waters, that spreads out her roots by the river. We don’t know when heat comes because we dwell in the secret place of the Most High where we enjoy perfect peace. In Jesus mighty name!
