Elevated Faith


During his reign, King Frederick William III of Prussia found himself in a bind. Wars had been costly, and in trying to build the nation, he was seriously short of finances. After careful reflection, he decided to ask the women of Prussia if they would bring their jewellery of gold and silver to be melted down for their country. Each piece of jewellery he received, he would exchange for decoration of bronze or iron as a symbol of his gratitude. These decorations would be inscribed, ‘I gave gold for iron, 18l3?.

The response was overwhelming. But more importantly, the women prized these gifts from the king even more highly than their former jewellery! The reason, of course, is clear. They were proof that they had sacrificed for their king.

When we come to know our King, we too should want to exchange the flourishes of our former life for Him. The amazing thing about our King is that He not only takes our jewels, but He takes our rags too — and uses them for the good of His Kingdom!

Today, there are some things we need to sacrifice for him. Let’s pray and ask for His revelation. Great things are awaiting those who give. It’s time to make the trade, the King is waiting if you want to be a servant you must sacrifice the glamour, and pleasure of this world and let the King transform you with his stamp. Then and only then you will be fit for service

I will freely sacrifice unto thee: I will praise thy name, O LORD; for it is good. Psalms 54:6 

Let’s Pray

Yahweh, thanks for this awesome opportunity to trade in my life for you my King, I lay all I have today at your feet begging you for the transforming stamp. So, I can be ready for Your service. Take my life and let it be consecrated Lord to thee. In Christ’s name. Amen
