YOU Are A Son or Daughter Of The King–No Matter How You May Feel Today!

daughter of the king“The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, ‘Abba, Father.’ (Romans 8:15)

Sometimes it takes a load of bricks to fall on my head for me to understand things. I’ve been going through one of the roughest periods of my life: Completely unequipped to handle all that life seems to be throwing at me. I know God is in control – and I’m thankful – because I know I surely am not.

I received an email of encouragement from a dear friend. In the email she made a comment, “You are indeed a daughter of the King.”

Huh?

Me?

I must admit to crying as I read these words. Did she know? Did she realize how little strength I really have? As the words slowly sunk in. . .”You are indeed a daughter of the King,” I began to understand. Yes, I am the daughter of the King.

I needed to read those words.

Each of us, each who believe, are children – sons and daughters of the King.

And yes, maybe we are worried, maybe we are weak, maybe we are weary–but we are still children of the King. And as we bring each weakness, each weariness, each worry to His feet–He is the one who will give us strength.

It is His strength others see in us. It is His hand who upholds us. It is He who allows others to see the One in whom we place our faith.

Are you claiming your rightful place in God’s kingdom today? Are you realizing that it is He and He alone who will get you through whatever trial you face? Beloved reader, I pray that today, you will look to Him and cry, “Abba, Father” – for He is the one who will make you strong when you are at your weakest.

Prayer: Father God, I praise and thank you for the words of encouragement you bring into our lives. I am awed that you have chosen us to be your children and equip us, in the worst of times, to come to you and cry. . . “Abba , Father!” Amen.

  1. deni – your words written into my life are ever timely and these comes when I am needing uplifting, as well.

    How true it is that as weak as we “feel”, as harsh as the present circumstances are – swirling around us taking our own strength away – we remain a child of the King.

    Ah, thank you! Thank you that during this time you are facing, you reach out to His other children with the gift and reminder of our inheritance.

    With love and continuing prayers for you –
    Lynn

  2. Lynn, isn’t it strange how even in the darkness, we can get glimpses of the light that carry us through? I’m glad the words can help and even gladder that you have become such a good and faithful friend – and through these devotionals! Thanks for you prayers.

    Love and appreciation!
    deni

  3. deni,

    I thank you for your words and echo what Lynn has said too as we all seem to need that reminder, not matter what our situation may be. It came when I needed some of that light too, so thanks.

    Praying for you,
    Fiona

    Thank you for taking the time to share words from your heart with others at a time when your life is in such turmoil.

    I know that I certainly needed to hear those words today. My life seems to be an unending challenge these days but compared to your trials what I am dealing with is nothing in comparison. However, it is true that we are ALL daughters (sons) of the King. What an awesome privilege that is. We do our human best as parents to care for our children so just stop and think how much more our Heavenly Father is doing for us, His children. I find that an amazing thing to stop and realize and I had not thought about it for a very long time until I read your writing here today.

    I love you and I’m sending many cyber hugs your way to you and all of the family and many prayers are being said on behalf of your family and on behalf of you. Kevin joins me in praying for all of you and in following your updates.

    hugs,
    Heather

  5. Fiona and Heather – thanks for sharing your thoughts on the devotional and also for sharing your lives and prayers the way you do! As a daughter of the King, I have some wonderful sisters!
