(God’s Word Is The Truth About You)
TO THE BIBLE John 17:17 NIV
“Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.”
Whatever God has said about you in His Word is the reality; that’s the truth about you. For example, the Word says, “…Greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4 NASB). That means you can’t be oppressed; you can’t be defeated or disadvantaged in life, because the greater One, with all His wisdom, power, and glory, lives in you. Another truth is in 1 John 3:2 that says, “Beloved, we are [even here and] now God’s children…” (AMPC). You’re a child of God right now; not next year or when you get to heaven; it’s a present-hour reality. You’re born of Him, and that makes you an associate of the God-kind.
Moreover, 1 John 4:17 says, “…As He is, so are we in this world”; that means you’re His express image; the effulgence of His glory. Anyone who has seen you has seen the Master, because you’re His icon. No wonder He said in John 17:22, “And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one.” Thus, as He is—glorified— so are you! Affirming the truth of our uniqueness, peculiarity, and superiority, the Apostle James writes, “Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures” (James 1:18).
1 Peter 2:9 also reiterates that you’re peculiar; the first and the best of everything that God created. You’re His most precious and prized possession, called to display the excellence, beauty and perfections of divinity! So, it doesn’t matter what you may be going through in your life today; don’t despair; you’re more than a conqueror. You’re the seed of Abraham and a success. Everything and everyone you touch is blessed because you’re the dispenser of God’s goodness! These are new creation realities and truths revealed about you in the Word of God; and they’re indeed worth singing, dancing, and shouting about!
Psalm 87:2-3; James 1:22
Dear Father, I thank you, for my heart has embraced your words of life and truth. Thank you for granting me the revelation knowledge of the glorious truths you’ve spoken concerning me, and the wisdom to appropriate and walk in the reality of my blessings in Christ, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
