RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DAILY DEVOTIONAL
THE GLORY OF HIS SACRIFICE
Saturday, September 16th,2017
_*Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow (1 Peter 1:10-11).
It was God-ordained that Christ should suffer and the result of His suffering be glory, victory, success and prosperity for us all. Therefore, you’re to celebrate what Jesus did for you; He didn’t die for nothing; His vicarious death gave mankind victory over sin and its effects.
By hanging on the cross, as God’s sacrifice for sin, He took your place and gave you the victory. Now, God wants you not only to proclaim that victory, but to live every day in the victory of His death, burial and glorious resurrection. This means, if you were lying on a sickbed, it’s time to get up for you’ve received life in Christ.
The same goes for poverty; it shouldn’t take a hold of you anymore for Jesus took your place of poverty and gave you prosperity: _*“For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich”*_ (2 Corinthians 8:9). You can live absolutely debt-free now because the Lord supplies all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Live with this consciousness. You’ve been chosen out of the world and separated unto the glory-life. The Bible says you’re _*“…a chosen race, a priesthood of kingly lineage, a holy nation, a people belonging specially to God, that you may make known the perfections of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvellous light”*_ (1 Peter 2:9 WNT).
You’re a special breed, born with the life and nature of God. He has designated your path to be that of victory and success only.
*I thank you Lord for bringing me out of darkness into your marvellous light, where I reign and rule as a king in life, enjoying the joy, health, peace, prosperity, progress, success and victory you’ve made available to me in Christ, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
