I welcome you once again to this great month. This is the seventh month and the number seven, stands for perfection. Therefore, God will prefect all that concerns you this month in the name of Jesus Christ!
This month, you are set to assume your royal position and authority and that is why the topic for discussion is: “You are Royalty.” You belong to a kingly family, so you should behave and act as one at every occasion. Indeed, you have been redeemed by Jesus Christ to reign as priest and king on the earth. The Bible says: But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: (1 Peter 2:9)
Every bonafide child of God is fashioned after the similitude of a palace (Psalm 144:12). You have a royal blood in you, because your Father is the King of kings. It is written:
These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful (Revelations 17:14).
However, the reason most Christians still live and behave like commoners is because they have not understood or believed their royal status. When you discover your royal status from Scriptures and you believe it wholeheartedly, it conform everything about you. The way you behave, dress, speak, comport yourself and your carriage changes to the image of God’s royalty in you.
Do not mistake this; it does not call for pride or arrogance, but your need to assume your royal status in order to stop being molested by the devil. The Bible says:
Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; (Galatians 4:1)
You are an heir to God’s Kingdom, but as long as you remain ignorant as a child you cannot ascend the throne. The place of authority is conferred through your knowledge of your position in God. However, this has nothing to do with your years of being a Christian, but your faith and application of God’s Word to every stage of your life.
Truth is: You are not meant to live an ordinary life, or suffer what others suffer, if only you know your worth and work by it. Even your spoken words carries power and the capacity to deliver whatever you declare, if they are used appropriately.
So, from today, beginning to think, talk and act like a king. How do kings think? You may ask. They think healthy and positive thoughts. They are not mindful of themselves alone, but also the welfare of their subjects. In other words, you must think the advancement of your immediate environment as well as the world at large.
You royal status does not end with you; the worth of royalty is in the quality of lives you are able to influence. A true worth of a king is in the works he does, and not the riches he commands. You have so much deposited in you, it must not be wasted.
However, you must understand that your royalty begins with the salvation of your soul. The Bible says “And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth” (Revelation 5:10). The “us” here represents God’s children. So, you need to be listed among God’s children to qualify for a royal life style. Truth is, you can be born again by just saying this prayer in faith: Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I believe You died and rose again for my sake. Forgive me of my sins, take over my life, make me Your child and let Your peace reign over my life. Thank you for saving me. Now I know I am born again!
Congratulations, you are now born again! I believe that you will begin to experience the reality of the price that Jesus paid for your sins at Calvary. All-round rest and peace are guaranteed you, in Jesus’ Name! Call or write, and share your testimonies with me through email@example.com, OR call 07026385437 and 08141320204.
