The Sons and Daughters of the Reigning King
“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” (1 Peter 2:9)
Princess Diary is a movie about a shy awkward teenager who thought she was just a nobody. Not until her father who acquired cancer had to tell her she is not just an ordinary girl. She is a real-life princess and heir to the throne of Genovia. The story progresses showing her move to Genovia and her training with her strict grandmother to give her “princess lessons” and how she eventually became a great princess.
Just like this story, many of us really have no idea who we really are. We are destined for royalty. We are princes and princesses of the Lord. We have not realized this and that is why we don’t live intentional and victorious lives.
The Lord calls his children back to his Kingdom for a higher calling. It is an open invitation to receive Jesus Christ in our life and see the transforming power of God when we make Jesus reign. John 1:12 says, “Yet to all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave them the right to become the children of God.” As we take that step of receiving Christ in our lives, we are given a new heart and a new Spirit to follow a godly life. Your destiny is now laid out for you. You were born to declare the goodness of God and bring people back to His light. This is what we are made for. Now it’s time to live it.
Lord, thank You that you call us your children. We desire to let you reign in our life that we may accomplish what You have destined for us to do.
Declare to yourself, “ I am a child of God” and “I am a prince/princess of the King of Kings” daily. Be empowered to walk in this truth.
