“Nothing Common About You”

Thought for Today: Nothing Common About You

In the coming days the devil knows that there is nothing that he can do about your faith in the Lord God Almighty. You have seen God react, respond, and remove obstacles out of your life that would have caused so many others to give up or give in. Your faith in God is growing every day.  

The more you read His word, the more faith you have in Him to accomplish His word. The more you pray, the more you trust that still small voice that gives you direction and instructions throughout the day. And the more you worship God in spirit and in truth, the more you sense His presence around you in your everyday living.  

Because of your growth in your relationship with the Lord, the devil will have to change up his strategy when he comes at you. Since he cannot convince you that God is not who He say He is anymore, the next strategy of hell is to convince you that you are just like everybody else.  

You will begin to hear those close to you whispering “She thinks she special, or, he thinks he is all that.” You will begin to hear people say “Who do she think she is? Or, who does he think he is?” You will begin to hear this often, “You aren’t better than any of us, you are just like everybody else.”  

I say to you my brothers and sisters, as a child of the most high God you need to know this truth: THERE AIN’T NOTHING COMMON ABOUT YOU.  The word of God says in 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore if any man (woman) be in Christ, he (she) is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold all things are become new.”

When you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, God took His ‘Super’ and fused it with your ‘Natural’ giving you the ability to live a supernatural life. The reason why the enemy wants you to believe that you are just like everybody else is because, as a child of God, no weapon formed against you will prosper (Isaiah 54:17). 

As a child of God, you have power over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you (Luke 10:19). Normal people don’t have that kind of power. As a child of God, you have the fulness of who God is; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit dwelling in you. Jesus said “If a man (woman) love me, he (she) will keep my words; and my Father will love him (her) and WE WILL COME UNTO him (her) and MAKE OUR ABODE with him (her)” (John 14:23). 

How in the hallelujah can you be just like everybody else when you have the all-knowing, all-seeing, everywhere at all times, all-powerful God dwelling in you? THERE IS NOTHING COMMON ABOUT YOU. The devil is a liar, you are not just like everybody else.  

This is what Jesus, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords prayed for you in John 17:15-17, “I pray not that thou shouldest take them (this means you) out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them (set them apart) through thy truth; thy word is truth.”

If you ever grab ahold of the truth that, as a child of God, THERE IS NOTHING COMMON ABOUT YOU, you will begin to walk in the power and the authority of the most high God. The devil can’t come at you with fear tactics like he does to everybody else because God does not give you a spirit of fear but of power, love, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). THERE IS NOTHING COMMON ABOUT YOU. 

The devil can’t hold you back with lies like he does everybody else because Jesus said, “And you shall know the truth and the truth shall MAKE you free” (John 8:32). THERE IS NOTHING COMMON ABOUT YOU.  

You are fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are the works that God did in you, is doing in you, and will do in you every day of your life (Psalm 139:14). The world, your flesh, and the devil can’t put you in a box like everybody else. The enemy can’t hold you down and make you believe that you are no different than those around you. They can’t put you in a common category with everybody else.  

For it is written, “And they laid their hands on the apostles and PUT THEM IN THE COMMON PRISON. But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors and brought them forth and said ‘Go stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life’” (Acts 5:18-20). 

Get up daughter of Zion, arise son of the most high God. Grab the word of God, speak the word of God,  live your life according to the word of God, and know that THERE AIN’T NOTHING COMMON ABOUT YOU.

Be Blessed
