Psalms 45:9-15 Daughters of kings are among your honored women; at your right hand is the royal bride in gold of Ophir. Listen, O daughter, consider and give ear: Forget your people and your father's house. The king is enthralled by your beauty; honor him, for he is your lord... All glorious is the princess within her chamber; her gown is interwoven with gold. In embroidered garments she is led to the king; her virgin companions follow her and are brought to you. They are led in with joy and gladness; they enter the palace of the king.
Is 62:3-5 Thou shalt also be a crown of beauty in the hand of Jehovah, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God. Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzi-bah, and thy land Beulah; for Jehovah delighteth in thee, and ...as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.
Are you like me and often forget who you are? I get caught up in how the world defines me, or how I've let my past define me. Let's not forget the enemy, he loves to try and make us forget who we are.
If you are in Christ then you are a daughter of The King of heaven. You are the virgin bride of Christ! Your King loves you with an everlasting love. (Jere 31:3)"...I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee."
My dear sisters your King believes that you are beautiful, He loves you. You are His chosen and you stand before Him holy and blameless. (Heb 1:4) Your sins have been forgiven, the enemy has no more power over you. For there is no more condemnation for those in Christ Jesus. We have been set free of death and sin. (Romans 8:1,2)
So let us remember this day to walk with beauty and grace. Live today knowing that you are the beloved, beautiful daughter of the King. You are the bride of Christ, pure and spotless.
Such a good reminder. Last year I taught the wednesday night 1st grade girls class at our church. We had a princess party, which the girls just loved, but our lesson was based on being the daughter of the King. We sent them each home with a picture of themselves all dolled up in a frame that said - "I am a princess, because my heavenly Father is a King" They still remember the reason they are princesses! Thanks for your post.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful idea. :-)
I love Mari's comment. Maybe if every little girl was taught that at a young age with a great visual like that, our young women would have a better picture of who they are. How great!ReplyDelete

I often do not think of my self as the princess, I love the post just what every girls wants to be a princess, yet we are already.ReplyDelete
