YOU ARE A CHILD OF THE KING:
WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES: This weekend brought about celebrations of fathers where many families share thoughts of love and gratitude. Now today is Monday and the start to another week. Can you say that you are eager to begin the journey into the unknown in which you embrace what has been purposed just for you? With your minds and hearts lifted in prayer and thanksgiving allow this to be a moment in time you set aside time to commune with your Holy Farther, the one who will sustain and meet every one of your needs. You must be a diligent seeker of peace found in the Lord.
When you came to the knowledge that you awoke this morning and has been given strength to move forth, be thankful. Remember your creator, giver of life. For the scriptures reminds you this way, O Lord you are our Father, we are the clay and you are the potter, we all are the work of your hand (Isaiah 64: 8; NKJV). Meditate on these words, allow them to mold and shape your attitude throughout the day when face with adversity, challenges, decisions and choices; most of all remember, YOU ARE A CHILD OF THE KING, he will abide in you as long as you are faithful and centered in him.
For you formed my inward parts, covered me in my mothers’ womb…I am fearfully and wonderfully made…my frame was not hidden from you when I was made in secret…your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed; in your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me when as yet there were none of them (Psalm 139: 13-16). What other evidence do you need to know how truly blessed you were to open your eyes this morning to begin this journey in time.
The Lord knows everything about you, when you’re sitting down and when you’re rising up. He knows your thought and motives, good or bad. Nothing is hidden in secret that has not already been planned. So, today, live life in joy and peace, he will be your voice when you find it hard to respond in situations and circumstances that threatened to interrupt your flow in the moment. Say to yourself, I will praise God and I will worship in his presence at all times; because YOU ARE A CHILD OF THE KING, embrace the moment.
