DAY 211 OF 365 IN 2021


Matthew 13:54 When He had come to His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished and said, “Where did this Man get this wisdom and these mighty works?

At first glance and first interaction, a person’s name, appearance and mother tongue often give a slight hint as to which part of the world they are likely to come from. In this regard, many people can easily be linked to a particular primary background. With increased familiarity, one might even be accurately associated with the right family because physical and natural associations are a part of the fabric of society.

It should therefore be no real surprise that Jesus was identified in his hometown as ‘the carpenter’s son and Mary’s son’. Those associations were undeniably true in the context. However, there was something else that could not neither be traced back to Joseph the carpenter nor Mary, his mother: the wisdom he carried and the mighty works He did.

When we consciously make the decision to become associated with God, His essence seeps into our very being. It does not sever our physical associations per se, but it superimposes another layer of glory that makes it impossible for us to be identified only in the natural. Our thoughts, works and deeds become transformed into messages that cannot be interpreted according to scripts in the natural.

Beloved, the fact that you have been with God should always be the variable that overrides any physical associations.

There should be a mystery about your life that your physical origin is unable to accurately explain.
