HE MAKES YOUR LIFE GLORIOUS
(Things Will Change When You Trust The Lord)
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.””
There’s no disadvantage for the child of God, and you better believe that! It makes no difference how you were born, who your parents are, your present environment, or historical background. Being born again, your life is intended by God to go only in the direction of success. You may have been born into an extremely poor family; it doesn’t mean anything! You’re the seed of Abraham. Therefore, your prosperity has nothing to do with your biological parents or family tree. There’s no law from God that states that those born in the palace would fare better in life than those born in a hamlet in some poor countryside.
Actually, the worse the circumstances of your birth, the greater and more glorious your testimony! So, never have a reason to be ashamed of the circumstances of your birth, background, or current location. Rather, make up your mind you’re going to be very successful, and be the answer to the cry of others in that place. Be the one to change the status quo. If you’re from a poor home, don’t be ashamed of your parents or their background! Stay there and work your way upwards! Just because your neighbours seem to be better off doesn’t mean you should covet their possessions, and wish they belonged to you instead.
Be glad about where you’re from and thank God for it! Remember, God raises the poor out of the dust, and lifts up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory. Trust Him to make your life glorious. There’s no limitation for you, if you’d only trust the Lord with your life.
Who is like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high,
:6 Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!
:7 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;
:8 That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.
:9 He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD.
I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
:2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
:3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
:4 Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
Blessed Lord, thank you for your loving-kindness! You’ve set my feet upon a rock, making my footsteps firm. Before I was born, you knew me, and predestined me for the life of greatness. By your Word, and by your Spirit, I’m making progress with giant strides, bearing fruits unto righteousness, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
