“And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,” Romans 9:23
We are the vessels of mercy prepared unto glory. God is not dealing with us in judgment. He is dealing with us in mercy. He has glory prepared for us. So don’t expect anything other than glory. No shame, no disgrace, no embarrassment and no ridicule. They are not your portion. Glory is your portion!
Verse 24 of the same chapter says “Even us whom He had called not of the Jews only but also of the Gentiles”. We have been included. It is no longer the Jews only, but also we the Gentiles. We used to be Gentiles and so He included us. That is what the new creation is all about.
Verses 25 and 26 say: “I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God”.
In the same place where they have humiliated you, they will change their testimony. In the same place where it has been said you are finished, you will emerge in a new way. In the same place where you have failed, get ready you will succeed. God will disappoint their prophesies in your life. In the same place where they saw something that will kill you, you will live and not die. God is a merciful God. He is not looking for who to kill. He so loved you that He gave His only begotten Son. While we are yet sinners Christ died. What a love! He who spared not His own son and gave Him freely how can He not freely give us all things?
He has given you His all without withholding back. All things are already yours. Your responsibility is to take delivery of what has been given to you.
