You can find your place amongst the stars or settle down into the dust. In either case, you are a child of God. Abraham, the father of our faith, was promised as many descendants as the stars in the sky. Another time, the promise was that the descendants would be as numerous as the sands on the beach. In Galatians 3, it is established that the blessing of Abraham is the gift of the Holy Spirit. If you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise (Galatians 3:29). You get to choose which class of heirs you want to be a part of.
From Psalm 113:7-8 (ESV), “He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap, to make them sit with princes, with the princes of his people.” We see here that God can make a prince out of anybody. The Bible contains numerous examples of this. From Joseph in Egypt to Gideon in Israel and the Apostles in the New Testament, there is a story for everyone. There is a long list of Christians today who are manifesting the life of God within them as if they were a star in the sky.
Look up at the sky and consider your place among the stars. Don’t just look down and worry about your position in the dirt. You have the ability to operate at a higher level. This is not about seeking a social status or office that appears to be important. It is about having the passion and making the commitment necessary to operate at a higher level of productivity. How much effort would you put in to find your place among the stars? Have you already made your home in the dirt? Today is an excellent day to reconsider your position.
