THE DISTINGUISHED MAN
You must be distinguished by God before you can enjoy distinction. Psalms 112:1-10 says Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments. *His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed. *Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever. *Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous. *A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion. *Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance. *He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD. *His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies. *He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour. *The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish
The above scripture is a story of a (would be) distinguished man. To be distinguished means to have things done in a totally different order, to be distinguished also means to be living above failure and curses. Joseph was distinguished among his brothers. It’s recorded in Genesis 37:3, 11 which says Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours. *And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying. Joseph was second to the last in their family ranking but was envied by all of his brothers and he ends up with distinction the same way.
Vision, (seeing ahead) distinguished Joseph (in the Bible) you will be distinguished. Genesis 41:37-38 And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all his servants. *And Pharaoh said unto his servants, Can we find such a one as this is, a man in whom the Spirit of God is? Please pray for uncommon dreams, uncommon favour, uncommon breakthrough, uncommon ideas, uncommon miracle, because it’s only uncommon blessing that can distinguish you. You will be distinguished this month in Jesus name.
Attribute Of A Distinguished Man
Psalms 112:1 Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments. If you want to be distinguished, you must fear the Lord. If you fear God; you will always worship Him and you will not misbehave. Joseph fear the Lord; Genesis 39:1, 23, Job in the Bible was a man that fears God.
Fear of the Lord
is missing in many lives today that’s why the verse started with ‘Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man’ also means distinguished. God will distinguish anyone that fears him.
His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the Generation of the upright shall be blessed. A blessed father cannot give birth to cursed children for he will command his children in the right way. Therefore, his children will be great. We are all seed of Abraham today as a Christian; why Abraham was distinguished. The Promise (and covenant) of the Lord started with Abraham and also continue with us. Every good word of God towards you will come to pass expressly this week in Jesus name amen!
Wealth And Riches:
Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever. Wealth can be view as material blessing and health while riches; covers affluence and financial abundance. If you are distinguished by God, you will enjoy wealth and riches. The reason is people will be able to trust you and they will entrust their valuables into your hands, that’s how Joseph prospered.
Light: Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous. Light in this verse means knowing what to do at a cross road. Jesus was face with multitude to feed yet he knew what to do, Joseph knew what to do to escape from Potiphar’s wife. Many died because they don’t know what to do at a certain time while in school. Some lost their wife, children and properties because they are walking in darkness without light. Where light end is where life end! You shall not die.
A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion. Discretion here means real giving not wasting, real favour not pride, and living in abundance by wisdom. You don’t need to organize a party because you bought a new car or built a new house. Celebrate God’s Kingdom Advancement not material blessing. Read this account of Joseph by Pharaoh Genesis 41:39 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art.
Rest Of Mind and Peace Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance. *He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD. *His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies. Distinguished people are bold and fearless, they are not moved or tossed around by waves of the sea, they are simply in command by God’s strong Back-up. God will back you up in Jesus name. If you are truly distinguished, you will not need medication to sleep. Psalms 127:2 It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour. Distinguished man distribute blessings, give without stress, blesses people inwardly and outwardly. Distribution here means providing solution for the needy. The more you give the more you will receive God’s blessing in your life; that’s why they say Givers never lack, your giving will keep heaven’s windows open over you permanently. Therefore, don’t stop sowing financial seed into lives, ministry and God’s kingdom expansion on the earth: doing that qualifies you for ever booming blessings.
The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish. Seeing it they will melt away. They may bite their fingers, plan evil, but the Bible says that the desire of the wicked shall perish.
BECOMING A DISTINGUISHED MAN
You can be distinguished by the knowledge of the truth such as:
was distinguished because he cherishes God.Genesis 5:24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.The first man that did not see death. You shall not die like others.
was distinguished. God was displeased in Genesis 6:5-8 which says And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. *And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. *And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. *But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. Because even though the world was corrupt then Noah was not corrupt.
was distinguished. Genesis 12:1-4 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: *And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: *And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. *So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran. Because he obeyed God he did not see but believed he exist.
was distinguished because he sowed in the land of famine and God show him how to do it.Genesis 26:12-14 Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the LORD blessed him. *And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great: *For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.
was distinguished because he wrestle for blessing and got the blessing; a change of name. Genesis 32:24-28And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day. *And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob’s thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him. *And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me. *And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob. *And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed. *And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, thy name. And he said, Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name? And he blessed him there. You can use the light in the word of God for your change of status. The lives of saint(above) shows us what to do to be distinguished.
DISTINGUISHED BY GOD
Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Galatians 1:15-16 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace, *To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood: God knows tomorrow today, that’s why He has distinguished some people for ministry-work as we read in the above scripture. If God has ordained you for priesthood go for it, you will not prosper until you obey God. Jesus came for a purpose and that purpose is to save! And inside salvation are miracles, restorations, blessings, favours and fulfillments. If you don’t want to end up in the lake of fire, you better receive Jesus into your life. Say Lord Jesus, I receive you today as my Lord and personal saviour and I will follow you all my life. Amen.
