TOPIC: LIVING TO MANIFEST EXCELLENCE LIKE GOD
SCRIPTURE: O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! Who hast set thy glory above the heavens. – Psalms 8:1
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Existence below average is a transgression.
Our God is an excellent God. One of His attributes is excellence. The Word of God confirms this in Genesis 1:31, when God finished the creation of heaven and earth and everything in it, the Bible says, “And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good…”
Mediocrity is not in the gene of God. Since our nature is that of God, our Father, mediocrity is an abomination to our existence; existing below average is a transgression.
It is not the will of God for us to live like beggars. Living a desolate, pitiable and frustrated life is abominable to our association with the Almighty.
You have a status in God. Your true identity was defined in Exodus 19:5, “…ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people…”
What is a treasure? It is a valuable piece of commodity, a jewel of inestimable worth, a priceless pearl of unquantifiable value. You are a peculiar treasure, not a man under pressure, struggling or frustrated.
Beloved, arm yourself with this mentality and you will see God fulfilling His Word concerning you.
Remember this: Existence below average is a transgression.
1. See yourself continually the way God sees you.
2. Continually reject frustration and struggling out of your life.
