GLORIFICATION: GOD’S ULTIMATE FOR YOU – Part 1
Praise the Lord! God has given us the privilege of a gift of another glorious week. May this week be our week of fruitfulness on every side in the name of Jesus Christ!
On this platform, we shall be starting a series captioned - Glorification: God’s Ultimate for You. – Rom 8:29-30
As it is written;
“ For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.”
Recognize that we serve a glorious God Who lives in glory, walks in glory, operates in glory; as a matter of fact, He is the King of Glory. Being a loving Father, He is always eager to see His children being a full partaker of His glory – Jn 17:22/ Ps 24:8
From the scripture quoted above, we could see that the ultimate agenda of God for His children is glorification. He foreknew you to ultimately glorify you – Rom 8:30
Therefore, no matter your situation right now, no matter the state of your challenge, no matter the name people are calling you, no matter how hopeless your life seems to be, it shall surely end in glorification for you. –2Cor 4:17/ Lk 21:13
All through scriptures, we see men of the covenant facing deplorable challenges but it always ended in glory for them. A very good example on this note is Joseph.
He was one of the children of Jacob with a great future, as it was revealed to him at the early stage of his life. However, due to envy and wickedness, his own blood brothers plotted against him with the intention to hinder the realization of God’s ultimate of glorification for him. They sold him into slavery targeting the robbery of his glory. They started first by keeping him in the pit and from the pit he was sold as a slave to Potiphar – a captain to Pharaoh; from there into the prison before he finally arrived at the palace – Gen 37:9-11/19-20/ Gen 39/41
The good news is that, on your journey to glorification there might be some rough edges but remember that God has vowed never to leave nor forsake you. In fact, He will turn the rough edges into smooth surfaces to allow a free flow. -Heb 13:5/ Is 43:2
With God in your life, no matter what you face; they will fall in line and pleasant places for you. – Ps 16:5-6
In conclusion, as we journey through this week and beyond, be conscious of your glorification inheritance in Christ that has been preordained from the foundation of the earth.
This week, everything is turning in your favour in Jesus’ name.
Remain ever blessed.
Jesus is Lord!
