God’s Kings

And You have made them a kingdom (royal race) and priests to our God,

and they shall reign [as kings] over the earth.

Read Revelations 5:9-11, Amplified Bible

Sometimes we get confused and think that the good that comes to us is dependent upon our good behavior, our actions, and our worthiness. Never forget that the blessing we receive is purely and 100% because all of what Jesus Christ did for us. It is His blood that purchased our salvation and His grace that makes us kings and priests. Because of what Jesus did we get to reign as Kings over the earth. Whenever we start to think that we have to earn our position with God or that, on our own merit, we have to be worthy of God’s blessing that we get into trouble. Our faith and confidence must be only in the finished work of Jesus and the free gift of His righteousness. Because we have chosen to receive His saving grace and abide in His righteousness we can reign and be victorious. Knowing this will carry you through every employment activity in strength and confidence.

I am confident in the finished work of Jesus Christ.

My faith and trust is in him alone.

Jesus is more than enough for everything that I face and that I need.
