How God Sees Me

Scripture:  “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”  I Peter 2:9

Devotional: Life has a way of devaluing us because so much emphasis is put on those who have the power or influence; thus, many people are left to feel “less than” or not as important as others. However, it is truly a blessing to know that I am so valued by the Most High God!  To know that I have been set apart, for His glory, to do what He has called me to do, is awesome! Why, because of His grace and His mercy toward me!  

Prayer: Heavenly Father, we are so grateful and thankful for Your great love toward us; we worship you, we adore you, and we praise you for being our God; being our Rock and our Redeemer!  Father, we cannot thank you enough for bringing us out of utter darkness, and utter chaos, and now through Jesus Christ, we can know and experience your glory, your grace, and your generosity while we are discovering that it is You that is keeping us and it is You who is sustaining us; thank you for loving us in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and our Savior, we pray, Amen!  

Reflective Question: What does it mean to you to know that you are royalty to God?
