The bible says you are a peculiar people chosen to shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light: so you are peculiar, you are unique. People should look up to you they should look up to you for answers, they should look up to you for direction, they should look up to you for the way to go. People are expected to look up to you. You are to be envied and not to be pitied.
This is very important because where you think is where you live. For as a man thinketh in his heart so is he (Proverbs 23:7). So it is actually mentality that defines destiny (Judges 6 – Gideon is hiding in chapter 7 and Gideon changes his thinking about who he was and the tables turn and the enemy is seen hiding from him). So everything about you and me has to do with our mental picture. Until you have the appropriate picture you cannot create the desired future. You need an appropriate mental picture to create your desired future.
