Scripture Reading: Psalm 89:27
Also I will make him my firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth
Reflection: David was not the firstborn of his father. He was actually the youngest among his brothers. Having being anointed as King by God as a young boy, David receives yet another surprise from God. God announces that He will make him his firstborn. This places David higher than all the kings of the earth. Been divinely appointed as a firstborn is an important subject of discussion. Even though it places you in a high enviable position, it speaks of something more crucial! The firstborn son in the Old Testament is noted just not as the heir but somebody who is sanctified unto God. That means, he is set apart as God’s possession. Judging from this, as a divinely appointed firstborn, you are first and foremost designed by God as his possession to serve his will. Through you, God will demonstrate to people that his will can be cherished and adhered to. Like David, you are also appointed as God’s firstborn ( Rom 8:16-17, Hebrews 12:23). As God’s firstborn you are a ‘chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people to show forth the praises God'(1Peter 1:9). Glory hallelujah!
Confession: I am divinely appointed as God’s firstborn! I occupy an enviable position in life. My life will speak of God’s praises. I love and do God’s will.
