WORTHY THOUGHT:A true princess knows who she is in Christ Jesus.
I am not referring to the Disney character princesses. Those can give a false sense of image “how much attention can I get” in a pretend dress-up Disney character or even the beautiful American Meagan Markle we all watched on live television holding our breaths anticipating and waiting to see the absolutely stunning bride walk down the aisle to marry her Prince Harry. Meagan Markle did look like a princess in the Royal Wedding.
This is the Bible standard of a true princess:
A princess gets wisdom from The Word and defends the truth, she is humble and serves rather than be served, loves good and hates evil and for this has earned the praise of many nations.
True Royalty is not characterized by robes worn or thrones occupied, but by a faithful obedience to the most royal of all, the King of Kings. We have been called to be a royal priesthood, a holy nation, and we honor that royalty by honoring our Lord the King who gave it to us.
I came upon the sweet little girl who had never seen or heard a violin. I was playing in a village in Central America, Guatemala. This little girl walked up to me very curious about my instrument. I kneeled down on my knees to get to her level and make eye contact with this innocent creature. While I played for her, Jesus spoke to my heart and said; “This little girl is my princess”.
Someone in my group took the photo shot of that moment and you can certainly see in the photo she certainly is His princess.
Every girl, it does not matter what culture background wealthy or poor, if you are a daughter of God, believe Christ Jesus the Son of God is your true Lord and Savior then you are by Bible standards, a true princess.
Jesus said in Gospel John 15:16 ” You didn’t choose me! I choose you! I appointed you to go and produce lovely fruit always, so that no matter what you ask for from the Father, using my name he will give it to you.”
If you exalt wisdom, she will exalt you. Hold her fast and she will lead you to great honor; she will place a BEAUTIFUL crown upon your head. –Proverbs 4:9
“For we are his workmanship created in Christ Jesus into good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” –Ephesians 2:10
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. –Philippians 4:3
