“Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen”
The kings of the earth make painstaking efforts to raise and culture their children, because they’re royalty. Their kids don’t walk, talk, dress or behave like everyone else. The expectations are even greater when the child in question is the heir-apparent. That’s why Solomon said, “I was my father’s son, tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother. He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live”(Proverbs 4:3-4).
Solomon certainly wasn’t David’s only child, yet he said, “I was my father’s son” because he was the one groomed for the throne. There was a special training David needed to bequeath on him which the other sons didn’t get. As God’s children, we’re His heirs:“And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ…” (Romans 8:17).
You’re a joint-heir with Jesus Christ. You’re not an ordinary person; you’re royalty. Your heavenly Father owns the whole world and has placed you in charge of His possessions. No wonder the Bible says all things are yours (1 Corinthians 3:21). What an honour to be an heir of God!
You’ve been called to reign in life as a king. Make up your mind to walk, talk and live as the king that you are. Refuse to talk cheap or live a beggarly life. Kings don’t talk cheap, they exercise authority. Even in your prayers, don’t beg. Relate with God as a son. He loves you and knows you’re His heir, who has a right to His inexhaustible inheritance.
I’m a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, holy and a peculiar treasure unto God. I was born to reign and rule in life with the dominion of the Spirit. Through my words, I effect changes in the realm of the spirit, and cause circumstances and situations to align with God’s plan and purpose today,
in Jesus’ Name.
