1 Peter 2:9-10
9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a consecrated nation, a [special] people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies [the wonderful deeds and virtues and perfections] of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvellous light. 10 Once you were not a people [at all], but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
It starts with believing what Gods says about you and who you are. When you come to a place where you believe Gods words and his voice over the words of the enemy, you not only begin the journey of confidence, but you become rooted in the eternal truths of God. Being confident doesn’t depend on your performance, appearance or success. It purely relies on Gods true everlasting word. Remember God can not lie. Therefore, everything he says about you is 100% truth. In this word he says you are CHOSEN, ROYAL, CLAIMED by God and live in his wonderful light. You are Gods own, a part of the people of God, step into this truth, abandon inadequacy and all its lies. Even in the moments when you don’t feel confident, be bold, step up into courage and rest in the confident assurance that you are seen and loved by the living God.
- Do you believe you are chosen, royal, Gods possession and special? (Reflect on each word and if you don’t believe, list down the reasons why you don’t believe these truth)
- Confront each reason by saying:-
“Dear Holy spirit help me to believe what you say about me and reject every lie that makes me feel inadequate and less confident.”
I am chosen.
I am set apart.
I am Royal.
I am claimed by God as his very own.
I am special.
I live in the wonderful light of Christ.
I am Gods own, a part of the people of God.
