“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven” (Luke 10:19–20, KJV).
Recently while speaking to a group of incarcerated women, I discovered that many of them where struggling with their identity in Christ. But it’s a common problem for women everywhere. Many of us struggle with who we are and what we have to offer. The world has done a good job of setting values on people and things—and many times we feel like we just don’t measure up. For instance, when you hear the word “princess,” you more than likely picture a beautiful woman in a ball gown wearing jewels. One person I am sure you did not picture in your mind is YOU.
A princess is a daughter of a king who has been given the rights and privileges of a kingdom. You, my sister, are a daughter of the King, a princess, given all the rights and privileges of the Kingdom of God. Jesus has given us the power, authority, control, and mastery over the enemy. Because of this power, we are able to trample over all the force and strength of the enemy. The authority to be victorious over every life situation has been given to us, Princess, by our King, Jesus. We are operating under HIS authority and in HIS strength.
Living the life of a princess who operates in her rights and privileges of the Kingdom of God brings glory to Him. A princess knows who she is, knows and operates in her authority, and ultimately rejoices that her precious name is written in heaven!
So, when we look at ourselves in the mirror, we say, “Hello, Princess who walks in victory over the enemy and whose name is written in heaven. Have a glorious day walking in the strength of our KING, JESUS! Amen.”
Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, I first thank You that my name is written in heaven. I thank You that I am a princess and I will walk in the authority given to me by King Jesus. I ask that You help me to see myself as a princess, especially when times are tough and things look bad. I ask that You help me to not be moved by the way things look and only be moved by my faith in Your word. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
