Devotion: You Are Heir To His Throne
For you are a people holy to the LORD your God. The LORD your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession." Deut. 7:6
Have you ever thought of yourself as chosen by God? This passage specifically speaks of the Jewish nation but you are indeed grafted in as a child of God if you Believe His as Lord. And there are those still to come who are chosen, but still searching. As a child of a King that makes you royalty. As royalty you are entitled to all the privilege of Heaven. What God has is yours. If we truly dare to believe this then we have Peace, Confidence, Joy, Love, Contentment and Steadfast Loyalty. There's nothing you cannot achieve because you have the Authority of a King!
Many, many years ago-maybe 1999- I had a dream and I saw God's people all wearing crowns upon their heads. Each stood beside a car, their vehicle to their destiny. But then I saw the Devil with His stick. He came and poked at a child of God and demanded that they give him their crown. The child of God became sheepish and scared and complied...removing their crown and giving it to the devil and then immediately crawling under the car to hide. The Lord then spoke to my heart and told me that the devil intends to steal the blessing of the Church, but we are not to cower in fear and submit, we are to stand in our authority. Shortly after that I bought myself a charm bracelet that had a charm of a heart wearing a crown. It was my personal reminder to never let anything tarnish my crown. I knew who I was in God so I knew I never had anything to fear.
So, polish that crown today God has great plans for you! ~Nicole
