Sanctify – To Make Holy!
I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.
We have the love of the Father. What is the world compared to been loved by the Father!
Key to been champion is to be sanctified by the truth! To be holy is the meaning as to be set apart. It also means to be uncommon!
Simply to be holy! Jesus makes us holy! To have the love of our Father!
He has made us uncommon!
When the world is in the midst of difficult, we said too blessed to be stressed!
When people of the world said must strive than can win, the people of God’s children said must pray than can win!
Believe and be set apart and be uncommon!! Jesus is the most powerful of all!
Sanctified set apart and uncommon! We are an uncommon church! I am a holy people! I belong to an uncommon church!!
We lead on Jesus and trust in Him! We are Jeremiah 17 ‘s people!
We are people marked by God and set apart, holy!
How does God reveal His holiness to us?
“Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods?
Who is like You, glorious in holiness,
Fearful in praises, doing wonders?
We praise Him awesomely because He is good!
We fear and tremble in His goodness
We worship God and tremble at the wonders He performs!
The Lord parted the red sea and His people crossed on the dry land! We always expect God to do wondrously for us!!
God is raising uncommon people. We are uncommon in what we expect from God! Abraham believed God, that what God promised He is able to perform!
David had covenant with God and His consciousness was he is His beloved and he won! Jesus sanctified me!
I expect good from God! This is uncommon!!
He set us apart by His word! Sanctify by His truth
The word of His grace!
“So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.
How uncommon are we? We always expect good because of Jesus! We always expect to be favored!
For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous;
With favor You will surround him as with a shield.
We can rest and receive all that He died and gives to us!
We are a magnet, not a rusty nail! The Lord will open to us His good treasure!!
The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them.
We don’t run after blessings, blessings run after us!!
I am a blessing magnet! Blessings hunt me down!!!
The Lord will open to us His good treasure and sign for us with His signature!!
What Jesus said and promised He will perform!
What are we saying to ourselves? Always speak God’s word to ourselves and to our situations the Word of God!
Just believing and speaking, God can work on our behalf!
2 Kings 4:25-26
And so she departed, and went to the man of God at Mount Carmel.
So it was, when the man of God saw her afar off, that he said to his servant Gehazi, “Look, the Shunammite woman! Please run now to meet her, and say to her, ‘ Is it well with you? Is it well with your husband? Is it well with the child? ’”
And she answered, “ It is well.”
Even if ur soul is in great distressed, it is ok. U dont have to say what u see, speak what u wanna see! Say it is well!
2 Kings 4:27
Now when she came to the man of God at the hill, she caught him by the feet, but Gehazi came near to push her away. But the man of God said, “Let her alone; for her soul is in deep distress, and the Lord has hidden it from me, and has not told me.”
Speak and expect good and we shall see GOOD!!
This year God will open His good treasures to us and expect good!!
