If I asked you your name,you’ll give me the answer without hesitation. If I asked you whose child you are, you would most likely answer instantaneously as well. Then if I asked you what’s your identity as seen by God, what would your response be?
If you are born-again, let me tell you because I know it. Why? Because I am born-again too! We are royalty! We are kings and queens! We are a holy nation! We are peculiar people! We belong to the eternal king who has the greatest dynasty ever. Our father’s reign can never be terminated because he can never die,so, we are forever royals!
Now,on earth, we are faced by various challenges and in the course of the struggle, there is a tendency to forget who we really are. Satan throws lies in the air and the cacophony of his falsehood could drown the truth being softly spoken to us. He knows the truth. But to keep us from reigning, he has to keep the stream of lies flowing all over the landscape. My friend, no matter how real a lie might appear, the truth is still the original. Life might have stressed you but that doesn’t change the fact that God has blessed you. You are royalty. You are not a loser. You are not a failure. You might have had it bad in the past,friend,now it is a new day with Christ. Keep it in mind that God won’t abandon you. He is always with you. That ugly situation can be reversed. Dry your tears. Let go of your fears.That broken relationship can be mended. Embrace who you are in Christ. Just look within you, see that king, see that queen, smile to yourself and say ‘I am here to reign’. It might look hard to do, but if you make up your mind to do it, you will discover it. That DNA cannot be changed. You carry God inside you. There is a king in you.
Dear ruler, begin to create that world you want to see. Speak those things into life. Those positive things. Those beautiful trains of events. Your father created order in this present world in the beginning through spoken words. Speak now. Begin to profess your success. Erase failure. Stamp your authority on life. God lives within you. There is a king in you!
Peter was here on earth before us as a disciple of the master. Let’s see what he says here about us:
‘But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.’
1 Peter 2:9 (NIV)
Let go of that picture of the past. Rise from the ashes and begin to live in your rulership from this instant. Speak positivity. Those failures do not define you. Speak light and the darkness will disappear. The only boundary to your authority is God’s will. Only his will,as your father, governs whatever you decree. So,begin to live in your identity,friend. You are better than you know. You are more powerful in Christ than you know. There is a king in you!
