FireClan Devotional: HIS OWN

 Flaming Word 🔥📖

FireClan Daily Devotional Guide

Topic: His own

For reading and Meditation:* 2 Corinthians 6:14-18.

*Thought:* God has already given us this sense of belonging by calling us his people, so we have an identity which can not be stolen from us.

*Memory Verse:* Ephesians 1:4 "Just as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world ,that we should be holy and without blame before him in love."

What a sweet title: “My people!” What a cheering revelation: “Their God!” How much of meaning is couched in those two words, “My people!” here is speciality. The whole world is God's; the heaven, even the heaven of heavens is the Lord's, and he reigneth among the children of men; but of those whom he hath chosen, whom he hath purchased to himself, he saith what he saith not of others “My people.” In this word there is the idea of proprietorship.

 In a special manner the “Lord’s portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.” All the nations upon earth are his; the whole world is in his power; yet are his people, his chosen, more especially his possession; for he has done more for them than others; he has bought them with his blood; he has brought them nigh to himself; he has set his great heart upon them; he has loved them with an everlasting love, a love which many waters cannot quench, and which the revolutions of time shall never suffice in the least degree to diminish. 

Dear friend, can you, by faith, see yourself in that number? Can you look up to heaven and say, “My Lord and my God: mine by that sweet relationship which entitles me to call thee Father; mine by that hallowed fellowship which I delight to hold with you when you are pleased to manifest yourself unto me as you do not unto the world?” 

Can you read the Book of Inspiration, and find there deeper secret of salvation? Can uou read your  title written in precious blood? Can you, by humble faith, lay hold of Jesus garments, and say, “My Christ”? If you can, then God said of you, and of others like you, “My people;” for, if God be your God, and Christ your Christ, the Lord has a special, peculiar favour to you; you are the object of his choice, accepted in his beloved Son. 

If he be for you and you become his, no one can be against you. 

Romans 8:31 "What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?"

 Assignment: Reflect on God's ownership and how you can apply it in your daily life situations. 

 Prayer points: Thank you Jesus for calling me out among many and for calling me your own.make me concious of the fact that i am yours and yours alone.
