Apostle Grace Lubega
Zechariah 8:23(KJV); Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.
As a child of God, you have been called to an incorruptible inheritance (1 Peter 1:4). This is why you should never compare yourself to anyone in this world. Settle it in your heart that no one outside the kingdom of God is better than you. Heaven, earth and hell know it.
How about you? Do you know what it means to be born of God and not of flesh and blood? (John 1:13) Do you understand how expensively you were purchased? Do you understand how fearfully and wonderfully you were made? (Psalm 139:14).
Our theme scripture says that people from various nations shall take a hold of your skirt and beg to go with you because God is with you.
This means that it is not you seeking an association with the men of this world, begging for selfies and desperate for them to mention your name in the right ears so you can have your next big break.
It is those of the fallen world that should look to you for opportunity; it is those that should be desperate to associate with you.
Why? You have God!
Yes, they may have a larger bank account, but you have God! Yes, they may have connections and networks, but you have God! Yes, they may have influence, but you have God!
The world is in darkness and you are the light(Matthew 5:14). Simply build your inner man and the world will turn to you because everyone in darkness needs and looks to the light.

GOLDEN NUGGET: The world is in darkness and you are the light. Simply build your inner man and the world will turn to you because everyone in darkness needs and looks to the light.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this Word. I know who I am and whose I am. Kings come to my rising and Gentiles to my light. The world is looking for a story of hope and it reads it in the pages of my life. The world is looking for a story of greatness and it sees it in Your glory shining through me. I live as one set apart for power, glory and honour. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
