Because I believe Christ died on the cross and rose from the dead, I am a princess (prince) in God’s kingdom. This delightful truth requires that 1- God is King and 2- I am His child. As a believer in Jesus, the Bible refers to me as a child of God. John 1:12-13 “ But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.” Romans 8:14 and 16 “ For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.” “The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,” When you accepted Jesus as your Savior and put your faith in Him, then you became a child of God!
Most of us would accept that God is King but here are a few references to that fact. David often referred to God as King. Psalm 47:6 “Sing praises to God, sing praises!
Sing praises to our King, sing praises!” Psalm 95:3 “For the Lord is a great God,
and a great King above all gods.” Jeremiah also referred to God as King in Jeremiah 10:10a “But the Lord is the true God; he is the living God and the everlasting King.” 1 Timothy 6:15 “For, At just the right time Christ will be revealed from heaven by the blessed and only almighty God, the King of all kings and Lord of all lords.”
So what does all this mean for me? Being a prince or princess in God’s kingdom means I am in a place of privilege and great responsibility. Being related to the King puts me in His house and sharing in His wealth. I can have the King’s ear and speak with Him daily and share in the glory of His presence. However, being a prince or princess comes with great responsibilities too. I reflect upon the King with my deeds and actions, I have a job to do in being open to His will in my life and I am to deliver His message to the world. How are you doing as a prince or princess? Are you just taking in the goodness of God, your King, and not working for Him? Meditate on your position in God’s household today and ask God to make you the best prince or princess that you can be. Reflecting Jesus brings glory to God.
Loving being a princess of the King,
