I DECLARE THAT I AM, 'BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED'!

A Dear Price was paid for our ransom from darkness. Calvary was love...and yet...the world hated 'Him'. So my question is...will not the world hate us too? I know my declaration above offends some. Why? (Jhn 15:18-20)


 

  

If I were not an ex-whore 

I could understand...

If I were not an ex-adulterer

I could understand...

If I were not an ex-fornicator

I could understand...

If I were not an ex-murderer

I could understand...

I were not an ex- hippocrite and thief

I could understand...

If I were not an ex-liar and cheat

I could understand...

And if... knowing how some  resent

the prosperity of others...I was rich

monetarily and materially...sitting in

the lap of luxury

I could understand...

But...seeing how I am poor and destitute

having just come out of 'homelessness'

and...seeing that I have been delivered

from the 'bonds' of my once deliberate

sinful existence and do now...by

the Love and Power of Almighty God...'claim' 

   my 'Rich Inheritance' as a child of the

King of Kings and a member

of a 'Royal Priesthood'  who is filled

with  the Truth of His Word...

I Do Not Understand

the marked resentment of my statement!

The Word of God tells us that...

we are 'Blessed and Highly Favored' so...

without any reservations at all...

I proclaim it!

You see...this is not about me

this is about Jesus and His Mercy...and His Grace

and I will not be silent!

For, having been forgiven much

...I Love Much!

My Declaration is a 'laud' to my Blessed Creator

Thus, I pray you...try...to understand

why I do now and forever say....

I am Blessed and Highly Favored!

Aren't you...?
