Psalm 68:6 (King James Version)
“God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.”
God selected Abraham as the one person through which He could bless all mankind. His words to him were…“In thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” Because of Abraham’s obedience, faithfulness to God, and willingness to teach God’s ways and precepts to his children, we all have access to the Father. Jesus came into the earth realm by way of the Abrahamic seed or bloodline.
Just as God took one man and changed the world through faith, so can he change your family through you. No matter what shape your natural family may be in, God chose you to be the solitary or solitaire diamond that illuminates such brilliant light that will draw your family members to Him. You might think that you are in no shape to be any kind of diamond for anybody. However, it doesn’t matter how far you may have fallen, God can still use you if you let him. Did you know that diamonds can only be found far beneath the earth’s surface? An although 80 percent of the diamonds that are mined cannot be used as gems, you, my friend are in the 20 percent he can use. All you have to do is to submit to the diamond cutter and let him enhance the brilliance and fire of your life through his Word. He already has a plan that will accomplish his great work in you. He has examined you and knows which cuts are best to make. Though the process may be long, he knows how to bring out the color, clarity, quality carat and correct cut that will be undeniable to those close to you. They will notice the impurities being removed and replaced with the illuminating light of his countenance. You see we all like bling, and to have you “iced out” for your family is his desire.
