There is a fundamental truth about who I am that is sinking ever deeper into my heart and my mind and my soul: I AM A CHILD OF GOD, THE KING OF KINGS.
THIS MEANS I AM ROYALTY.
I AM A PRINCESS, y’all…
Because I have accepted Jesus Christ as my saviour, the One who made me right with God by having thrown on himself all of my darkness, all of my filth, all of my sin when he died on the Cross, I have been made a princess by being born again into a royal family…
The implications of this are MASSIVE!!!!!
My inheritance is the Kingdom of Heaven. I am an heir to the throne of God. I have been given all power and authority, along with the rest of my heavenly family, over the whole of creation. It’s not my own power, it’s my Daddy’s power which He has given to me. And I am like Him because He’s my Daddy. I have the mind of Jesus Christ, a sound mind.
This means I have been granted permission to heal, raise the dead, free people from demons, and do the things Jesus did – and greater ones still – because of His Holy Spirit living in me today.
“I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!” (John 14:12-14 NLT)
And when I live in the full knowledge of who I am in Christ, it releases power, the resurrection power of the Kingdom of heaven here on Earth.
In other words:
…”The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me, for the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed. He has sent me to tell those who mourn that the time of the Lord’s favor has come, and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies…”(Isaiah 61:1, 2 NLT)
This is so life-changing and life-giving. Who wouldn’t want to be part of this?!
Being a Christian is SO MUCH MORE than going to church and praying and singing songs, it’s more than going to bible study meetings….adhering to rules and regulations.
…In fact it’s none of these things!!!
Oh we’ve got it so wrong…!!
Being a Christian is being blessed and highly favoured. it is being seated in the heavenly places and sharing dominion over the whole of creation with the Maker and Master of it all. It is living a free, victorious, powerful life and bringing others into that same life so that they too can share in the inheritance.
When you get it, this is glorious!!!
