Dear Precious Friends,
As we embrace the gift of a new day and all that God has called us too, we remember who we are and that God has called us to a higher purpose than our own. We are Heirs to the King. This makes us King's Kids... This makes us royalty. He provides His angels to minister to us and help us see that purpose through. As heirs, we have a duty to ask Him what that purpose might be and to help us keep our priorities in order.
When we approach our Father in the Heavenly Place through prayer, we are reminded to straighten our crown and carry with us a spirit of expectation that He will cascade His blessings down on the things we do in this life that serve His purpose. Our lives, dreams, and desires, when they align with His, create miracles and blessings and bring forth favor. We aren't promised it will be easy and painless; remember, Jesus himself suffered. We have a greater promise as children, adopted into the Kingdom.
I love this from A Father's Whisper:
You are unique and perfect in every way that I made you. Care for your body that your soul resides in, it is a temple that I reside with you. Remember, even the flesh fades but the things you do, that no one sees, are for Me. You desire to be significant, don't you see you already are when you are serving Me. Come into My throne room as My daughter.
-A Father's Whisper
I encourage you to make a quick list of things you've had on your heart that need prayer. You've been meaning to pray on these things but time is short. Write them all out. Then get ready to write them again. The second time, at the top write, Being a Daughter of a King, because we all need a lesson on this daily. Our crowns are always crooked it seems. Then list the rest of the items as if you are seeing them through the eyes of Jesus. Maybe start with the things closest to you, family, loved ones, personal needs. Then, look out a bit further. Maybe the next ones are concerning your neighbors, friends, loved ones, etc. Then look a little further into your work place, community needs and keep doing this until you feel that they are in a true order of importance. It doesn't really matter your method of sorting.
Now, as you pray, lock your arms with Jesus and step into the throne room. You are His child. He desires to spend this time with you and hear about your concerns. Ask Him about His will for your life and the purpose He has. Ask for direction and guidance on the matters you are concerned with. He is concerned too. Believe that you are about to receive the blessings and answers you need like a cascading waterfall. You'll find some things are truly left in His hands and others you must see to on your own.
It's all in your approach, it's all in how you wear your crown.
Let's all stand firm my friends, straighten our crowns, say the Warrior's prayer from yesterday and go out into the world to be used by Him in mighty ways that He has planned for us.
Let's represent Him well and and make sure our crown is straight before we leave our homes to go out into the world.
