Yet you made them only a little lower than God, and crowned them, with glory and honor. Psalms 8:5 NLT
Have you ever walk in a place where you feel uneasy, threatened and maybe a little scared? There are situations, places and even people that had made us feel this way. Situations that we cannot control, places we don’t know and people that are against us. Our senses just translate all of that as a place, a person or a situation that could harm us. And yes there are many of them that are real threats to our well being, and if left unchecked they can bring havoc.
Now, we can sit down and dwell about these issues and get depressed or just sit down and stop our pursuit of the dreams in our hearts. “No more,” you could say, “it is to dangerous to continue”, and maybe you are right, it is a dangerous endeavor. But what would you do? Just stop and let the burning desire in your heart die? Or to talk your way out and rationalize your decision to be defeated by a ghost? Talk is cheap when action is needed.
Many times we let our circumstances define who we are. We look at what our resources say we can and cannot achieve. Our mirror is obscure and dull and doesn’t reflect the way God sees you.
Let me tell you who you are. The bible says that God created us a little lower than himself, and has crowned us with glory and honor. You might say, should that mean anything to me? It does. In the original, the term for God in this verse was Elohim, which means the uncalculated power of God. So you were created for greatness, you were created to reign. In every place and in every situation and before every person that comes your way, it shouldn’t be a matter of how dangerous it is for you, but how dangerous it is for them, they have stepped into the presence of a son and daughter of Elohim, they are in the presence of royalty and that means that they are in God’s danger zone and their lives will never be the same.
You will walk with a stride of confidence. You will be entering the scene not alone, but empowered. He has given you the authority to shift everything in your path for the glory of the One that created you and crowned you with honor and glory. Don’t let anything tell you otherwise and be prepared for greater things. Look at yourself as He sees you. You have become God’s danger zone.
