It seems as if the entire world was mesmerized by the union of Prince William and Kate.
The dress, the ceremony, who got invited…
Every detail was discussed by the media and ogled over by all of America. Even Twitter erupted in comments about this special event.
There was one particular detail that caught my attention… The fact that Kate was “a commoner.”
Not Royal by Blood
This was the first time that a marriage had occurred between a future king and a commoner in over 350 years. It caught my attention because I thought, “Hey, Kate is like me. Common. Normal. Not royal. There is hope for people like me!”
I was so excited that one of us had broken through. But then I realized that I couldn’t be more wrong.
Not wrong about the fact that there is hope for the common person. Not wrong about the part that Kate was a commoner and had just married a prince. That part I got right.
I was wrong about the fact that I (or you for that matter) is common in the first place. And I’m not talking about how we are not normal (ummmm, I kinda knew that about me anyway – but that is another kind of not normal, LOL). I am talking about the FACT that we are royalty.
Seriously, you don’t even have to do one of those tedious family tree projects. I can prove your heritage.
Let me ask you this, have you asked God to be Lord and Father of your life? I assume you have. If you haven’t, pray and ask Him to be right now. You won’t be sorry.
Do you believe the Bible when it says that God is the “King of kings and Lord of lords” in 1 Timothy and Revelation? I just believe everything I read in the Bible.
Well, if you answered yes to the last two questions, let me shed light on the fact that Kate Middleton has nothing on you.
You Are Royalty
If God is your Lord and Father AND He is a King, and YOU are his child, what is the child of a king known as? A prince or a princess.
It can’t be that simple!!!!! Can it? Oh, yes it certainly can!
The enemy spends most of his time lying to us about who we are. Because when we know who we are, we become aware of the inherent rights and privileges that we are entitled to.
Like a carriage ride after the royal wedding, there are certain things a prince or princess knows is supposed to happen for them. And if it doesn’t, they are found asking someone, “Excuse me, where is my carriage? Can you summon it quickly please?!?”
You are royal. You are entitled. You are the child of a King. You have rights and privileges. You are NOT common. YOU, my friend, have every right to hold your head up high and know that who ever messes with you is messing with the King’s kid.
The Glass Slipper 2011
These are the kinds of things that we are talking about at the Glass Slipper, our St. Louis women’s conference, to be held on June 10-11, 2011. If you know of someone who needs a reminder of who they are in Christ, or someone who needs to meet Christ so they can find out who they are – sign them up for the Glass Slipper women’s conference today at www.TheGlassSlipper2011.com.
Then proudly don your tiara (or guys grab a sword or something princely) and walk through the rest of today with your best royal posture. Because that is what you are….royalty!
