Daily Read – Ezekiel 45:13-46:24; 1 Peter 1:13-2:10; Psalm 119:33-48; Proverbs 28:11
1 Peter 2:9-10
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people,
that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;
who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy
but now have obtained mercy.
You have been called out of darkness into My marvelous light. The spirit man within that once walked in total darkness now lives seeing things in the heavenly realm. The eyes of your understanding are enlightened to the Spirit, once blind, but now you see. Do you really know who you are?
You are a chosen one, My own special child, a holy and royal priest. Royal blood flows through your veins and My DNA seals your identity transforming you from one degree of glory to the next. I have raised you up to sit in heavenly places with Christ Jesus. Do you really know who you are?
A great price was paid for your life, the life of My Son. Every drop of His blood is precious and made it possible for you to escape the darkness and now live in the light. You are a treasured part of your Father. You are birthed from My heart and will return to My heart when My Son comes to get you. Do you really know who you are?
Come out from the bondage and enslavement of who you were before Christ. That is no longer who you are today. Walk out of the grave clothes of yesterday and put on the royal robes of who you are today. Yesterday's clothes no longer fit because you have come too far and grown too much. There is only one garment befitting for My child and that is the robe of righteousness!
Jesus, I praise You with everything that is within me! Your blood washes my yesterdays away. I am clothed in royal robes and live in Your mercy and grace. I am Your chosen and called out child. You called me out from the darkness of my past into Your glorious light of my future. A new creature, old things passed away and all things new! The odor of death has passed giving way to the fragrance of life and new beginnings.
You have obtained mercy and My mercy has washed your yesterdays away!
I walk into this new day with a renewed vision of who I really am. Things will not look the same today as they did yesterday! My eyes have been enlightened to see who I really am in Your light and I will live it out in my today and in my tomorrows! Amen.
