WHO GOD SAYS I AM!
Jeremiah 1:5 – “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” (NIV)
Joseph’s brothers saw him as a useless dreamer, while the Midianite traders bought him as a slave. Potiphar looked at Joseph and saw a good servant, but his wife saw a potential boyfriend. The prison officers also saw in Joseph, a prisoner! How wrong were they because God looked at Joseph and saw a prime minister? (Genesis 37-50)
Beloved, don’t be discouraged by what men say; instead, be encouraged by what God says! As seen in our Bible reading, the Lord knew you even before your creation. His plans for you are for a glorious future (Jeremiah 29:11-13). Therefore, don’t quantify your tomorrow by the present circumstances!
Further, never underrate anyone because you don’t know what the Lord has deposited in them (1 Peter 4:10-11). Your maid may be a president in the making. Remember, David was anointed as king while herding sheep (1 Samuel 16:1-13). So, ‘it doesn’t matter how people see you; what’s important is how heaven sees you.’ (1 Peter 2:9). Be Born Again!
PRAYER OF DECREE
Hymn: Higher Ground – Johnson Oatman, Jr. (1898)
I (name) refuse to be dejected, defeated or depressed. I am a king/queen because God says I am! I will hold on while praying, and I shall have a great story to tell. So, help me, God!
1. Father, help me to please You in all my ways.
2. I cancel every prediction of hardship and death concerning me.
3. We pull down every foundation of wickedness in our families and the environment.
YOU SHALL WIN THE RACE TO ETERNITY!
