Psalm Chapter 82 KJV

King James Version, Holy Bible

God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.

How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.

Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.

Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.

They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.

I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.

But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.

Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.

Psalms Chapter 82 Devotional: YE ARE GODS


Thought for the day: You were made to act in God’s capacity on the earth.


Lions do not give birth to goats nor do elephants give birth to birds. 

They give birth to their kind. God made you gods on the earth because you are from His lineage. When man was given the ability to act, God's capacity was imparted to man in Genesis 2:7. Let us check it out.

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. (Genesis 2:7)

Wow! What a blessing it is to live by God's breath, to recognize that what sustains you is God's breath, and that the impartation of His breath provides power, knowledge, authority, and strength. This is why God could ask the man to name everything He created, and he could do it accurately since he had been impacted by the Lord.

One of the principles of gods is to act like God:

God is kind; gods must be kind.

God is merciful; gods must be merciful.

God is compassionate; gods must be compassionate

 In a situation where man fails to act in this way, man will begin to act like a man

"But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes"

Why? Because they have failed to deliver the poor and needy, they have failed to judge rightly; they have refused to show forth the character of God.

You were created for a purpose; rise as gods and exhibit God's character. Anytime God sees a man who represents Him well on the earth, He strengthens him to stand for Him even more. You cannot stand for God and die anyhow.


Ø  To act as a god is to display the character of God.

Ø  You must fully have an understanding of who God is to enable you to display His character.

Ø  Determine not to die like ordinary men. Stand in your place in Christ.


Father, I have the understanding that I was sent to the earth in your likeness and character. I receive the strength to fully display the strength you have imparted to me. I refuse to die like ordinary men, I choose to stand as a god in Jesus' name.
