Be The Best Of You
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well (Psalms 139:14).
I’m always excited to read this verse of scripture. It describes the peculiarity and uniqueness of every child of God. You’re the Father’s pride; a creation of wonder. There’s so much God has put within your system that makes you a peculiar treasure of inestimable value.
In Genesis chapter 12:2 God said to Abraham, “And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:”You’re the seed of Abraham now that you’re in Christ: “if ye be Christ, then are ye Abraham’s seed”(Galatians 3:29). By virtue of being Abraham’s seed not only are you blessed, you’re also a blessing. You carry the blessing with you and have become a dispenser of blessings everywhere you go. No wonder 1 Peter 2:9 declares:“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.”
Take some time today and meditate on who you are in Christ Jesus! You’re God’s perfectly crafted masterpiece; His complete and thoroughly finished product. You’ve been set forth to manifest His glory and show forth His praises to the world around you. Your responsibility now is to be the best of you for God. You’re the only one of you that God has. He’s never had another one like you; He doesn’t have another like you, and will never have another like you. That’s how unique you are; therefore be a success for Him! Be the best of you for Him, and give Him your all.
Dear heavenly Father, I ascribe all glory, honour and majesty to your great and wonderful Name! Thank you for making me a peculiar treasure, separatedunto you to bring you glory! I release myself to you and declare that by the power of your Spirit, your purpose for my life is fulfilled, to the glory and praise of your Name. Amen.
1 Peter 2:9AMP
