YOU ARE NOT ORDINARY

“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.” Matthew 5:14 KJV
The world we live in has been designed by the devil to intimidate you, put you down, disgrace you, bind you, and hinder God’s purpose for your life. Remember that the devil is the god of this world. That is how the world has been designed. But the God that has called you has equally equipped you to be able to confront your confrontations and overcome any circumstance. He has actually called you to reveal His glory on earth. You are not meant to be ridiculed by the world. He called you that you may show the world the way, because you are the one with the light.
The world doesn’t have the light. You are the light of the world. You are the salt of the earth. You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a peculiar people and a holy nation, set aside to show forth the praises of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvellous light.
You are not ordinary! When you became a believer, something powerful happened in your life. God chose you to accomplish the impossible. He called you to play in the big league, not to hide you in the crowd. He did not call you to be intimidated and confused. He did not create you to fear. He called you for something more powerful – to stay in covenant with Him, to establish His Kingdom on earth.
He called you to be a light to the Gentiles. He called you that you might walk tall as His ambassador and authorized agent on earth, with divine credentials. He called you to be a terror to the devil and to the world’s system. He called you so that the world will bow at your feet. I declare to you today that you will not see shame. You will not bow your head in defeat, and you will not lift your hands in surrender. You are more than a conqueror!
