Day 10

He will be great and will be called Ben-Elyon. Adonai Elohim will give Him the throne of David, His father. - Luke 1:32

You are from God, children, and you have overcome them, because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. - 1 John 4:4

Heart Thoughts

I once read a great story about horse breading, the kind of horses you see running in the Kentucky Derby. After reading this article I realized it is not at all coincidental that these horses become champions.

Before breeding, the owners make sure the horse comes from a pure and strong bloodline of a particular stallion. They’ll research everything about the horse’s pedigree. They will look back two or three generations and study how long their strides were, how tall their legs were, their takeoff speed, their endurance. With all this information, they’ll choose what they believe to be the perfect horse. They are picking champions they know can be victorious. Victory is almost guaranteed because victory is in their DNA.

When the little colt is born it may not look like a champion stallion. It’s legs almost buckle under the weight of its body. it is unsure and unconfident. It does not have focus and needs lots of rest and attention. Yet, over time with nurture and training that little colt will become a competitive stallion and all that DNA will start to kick in as it becomes a victorious stallion.

That’s how it is with you and me. But here is the difference. Rabbi Paul said, “For you see your calling, brothers and sisters, that not many are wise according to human standards, not many are powerful, and not many are born well.” Maybe you did or did not come from a great pedigree, maybe you don’t have parents that passed on a legacy of faith. Rabbi Paul says that is okay, God loves propping up the underdog. He loves to take the little colt that nobody thought would become a champion and get them over the finish line.

Whatever stock you came from it does not ultimately matter because when you were born again you got a new pedigree. Like Yeshua, you are a son or daughter of El Elyon. You now come from the best of the best. It doesn’t matter what you look like, how wealthy you are, how slim or overweight, how funny or serious. It doesn’t matter how many weaknesses you have. You may struggle with an addiction. You may be wrestling with a sin. You may have made some mistakes. What supersedes all of that is that inside you is the spiritual DNA of El Elyon.

If you look to Yeshua then you can see what you are in the process of becoming. He is the firstfruits. He is unique son of El Elyon. You and I are being made into that image. We now have the spiritual DNA of El Elyon.

Bracha

May El Elyon give you confidence today that the spiritual DNA inside of you is not of this word and that it overcomes the world. May you experience great victory in your life today no matter what obstacle stands in your way.
