Good Morning Gorgeous,
It’s brand new day. A fresh new start. A new day to walk in the assurance of who we are in Christ and what lies in store for those who love Him.
All throughout the Bible, the Lord is referred to as the Most High. I did a bible app search for scriptures naming God as Most High and the results of passages in the Bible with God referred to as “Most High” were pages and pages. He is the Most High over all, over everything, there is nothing above Him.. Again and again promises from the Lord Most High!
When we refer to Him as Most High, we are recognizing that He is above each and every other thing our life. He is the Lord Most High, worthy of our adoration and praise.
And Jesus is called the Son of the Most High by the angel Gabriel.
This Name spoken by the angel Gabriel confirms the status of Jesus. He is the Son of the Most High. He would be a baby born of both royalty from the line of King David and also divinely from the Most High God. Gabriel is speaking identity of who Christ is and setting Him apart. This child to born will be from the Most High God. AND this baby will be given the throne. That is the promise that the Jewish people were waiting upon. They were waiting on their King. And Jesus was born to be their Savior , Redeemer, and King and also OURS because the promise was extended to include all who call on the name of Jesus.
Now, Jesus would be given the opportunity to walk a blameless life before God and men, and then offer Himself as the atonement for sins, so that all followers of Jesus could receive the wonderful gift of salvation AND also a brand new identity and status.
Remember, the Most High, the Lord Himself has a plan to restore everything and He is setting up a new government with Christ as supreme ruler forever and ever as King of all kings. When He ascended into heaven, he took a seat at the right Hand of the Father and He has full authority of the throne over all. The Lord Most High has given FULL authority to Jesus.
We also are part of this plan. When you received Christ as your Lord and Savior, you became a brand new creation and were given a new identity in Christ. You’ve been given the spirit of sonship and now also can cry out to the Lord, “Abba, Father.” The Most High has become your Father too!
Why is that important? Because it makes you the child of the Most High and you now also have a holy inheritance and a royal identity! You have salvation for eternity, you have the gift of the Holy Spirit now, AND the Bible says very clearly in multiple places that you will rule and reign with Christ at the end of the age.
Christ’s name given to Him by the angel Gabriel, “Son of the Most High” gives Him right to be placed on the throne as King and your faith in Christ gives you access to royal privileges and responsibilities as a born again child of the Most High God.
There is an additional, amazing promise in ALL of this. Jesus is returning in FULL glory as King of all kings and His full reign as king means something for His followers! That’s you and me!
I know it seems too goood to be true. I know it sounds crazy and hard to fully comprehend. I know it seems nearly impossible to imagine yourself as a Holy Leader in Christ’s government, but His Word is clear on the role that is to come for His Holy People.. look closely…the sovereignty, power and all greatness will be given to the Holy people of the Most High.
When Jesus returns as King, all of His faithful followers will rule in His Kingdom with Him. We will be an active part of His Holy government and we will reign with Christ.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Your plans for us are astounding! They are hard to fully fathom because they are so great and marvelous. You have such plans to prosper us and to give us a beautiful future. And these prophetic promises declare that we have an ETERNAL future with you as rulers of the restored Kingdom. That is hard to grasp, but I choose to trust Your Word! And that’s what Your Word says again and again in both the Old and New Testament. You are setting up a Kingdom and we get to be part of it! Thank You Lord. Help us to walk eternally minded today and to realize how temporary life on earth is and what beauty is in store for those who love You and place their faith in You.
In Jesus’s name, Amen.
Blessings to you today!
