(You’ve Been Set Among Princes)
TO THE BIBLE: 1 Samuel 2:8
“He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the beggar from the ash heap, to set them among princes and make them inherit the throne of glory. “For the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s, and He has set the world upon them.””
I love this scripture! The only hope and permanent solution to the dilemma of the poor is God’s Word. He is the One that raises the poor out of the dust; He lifts up the beggar from the dunghill and sets him among princes. This is what God does! If you were born into a poor family before you gave your heart to Christ, there’s a princely robe on you now. Don’t count yourself among the poor anymore; don’t count yourself among the masses anymore.
God has brought you into your wealthy place. You’ve inherited the throne of glory. He has raised you from the dunghill and set you among princes. Who are the princes? The believers—God’s children! I love the way the Contemporary English Version puts it, it says God lifts “…the poor and homeless out of the garbage dump and gives them places of honor in royal palaces…” (1 Samuel 2:8 CEV). Do you now see why you must never count yourself among the poor?
You’re not a beggar; you’re not a nobody; you’re not a speck in the dust! God is your helper and He’s all the help that you need. When you live your life with this consciousness, you’ll discover that crises and challenges of life are all bread for you. Success and prosperity are your birthright! You’re born for the top and distinguished for greatness. You’re royalty possessing power with God, called to ride on the high places of life, and occupy the places of honor in kingly palaces.
1 Peter 2:9; Ephesians 2:6; 2 Corinthians 8:9
I’m the rich discovering daily how wealthy God has made me! I’m riding on with the Lord in high places of life where I reign and rule with Christ. Thank you Lord for bringing me into my place of inheritance in Christ Jesus, where I prosper and all my needs are met!
