Have you ever stopped to think that you are daughters of the King? That the King of Kings breathed his own breath in you and made you His daughters. So that would make you a princess right? Then I have to ask you daughters of the king, why have so many of you forgotten your royal position?
I remember when God first spoke this word into my heart. Anyone that used to know me knows that I used to be a destructive human being. I was destructive with my mouth (see my blog here for being destructive with your words), destructive with my actions, and destructive with the men.
And then the Holy Spirit spoke to me (see my blog here on the Holy Spirit), if you are a daughter of the king then why have you forgotten your royal position? Why are you out hearing acting like a peasant with no home training when you are my daughter? Good question.
That is when I decided to step back into my royal position and change. The people who knew me then would not recognize me now. Because then I had forgotten myself, and now
From what I have seen there are several ways in which daughters of the King forget their royal position.
Daughters of the King Forget Their Royal Position Because It was Taken from Them.
You can read my full blog here on Tamar. But I am going to give you her story on a nutshell. Tamar was a princess, the daughter of King David. She was lured into a bad situation by her half-brother and raped. And from there.
“Now she had on a long-sleeved garment; for in this manner the virgin daughters of the king dressed themselves in robes. Tamar put ashes on her head and tore her long-sleeved garment which was on her; and she put her hand on her head and went away, crying aloud as she went.” 2 Samuel 13:19-20
In this instance you see that Tamar felt she was no longer a princess and so she ripped her royal robes. We also know that Tamar went to go live to be a desolate woman. But let me ask you this. Just because Tamar ripped off her own royal robe did that make her any less of a princess? No she was not a virgin but was she still not royalty?
Tamar was still a princess no matter what happened to her. And the fact of the matter is that no one else ripped off her royal robe but her. The, third fact is that she thought that her half-brother robbed her of her royal position and she had no choice but to go hide herself away like she no longer mattered.
So what I am telling you is that no one can take from you what you do not allow for them to take from you. Some people put themselves in bad positions time and time again and then wonder why they are being stripped of their royal robe. Some women are allowing people who are beneath them to take advantage of them. And like Tamar they are ripping off their royal robes denouncing their position as the daughters of the King and going to live the sub-par life instead of stepping into their royal inheritance.
So I ask you, who has taken your royal robes? Who have made you think so low of yourself that you forget that you are the royal one? Who has made you forget who you are and allowed you to live in obscurity instead of taking your royal position among God? And more than anything, why have you allowed it?
Unlike Tamar you can be redeemed. We serve a King that no matter what we have done we can also come back to Him. So put back on your robes, go claim your position, be daughters of the King, and never let anyone make you forget yourself again.
Daughters of the Kings Forget Their Royal Position Because They Choose To
This is the most common reason why daughters of the King loose their position. It is because they have willingly stepped off of their throne and want to go live in a life of poverty, heartache, and pain. Not because they have to but because they choose to.
The story of the prodigal son is a prime example of this.
There was a man who had two sons. So he divided his property between them. The younger son set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living. After he had spent everything, there was a severe famine, and he began to be in need. He longed to fill his stomach with the pods that the pigs were eating, but no one gave him anything. Luke 15: 11-16
Now what type of nonsense is this? At home he had wealth and he had an inheritance but he took his wealth, wasted it, and was soon eating out of the same pod as a pig.
“When he came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death!’” Luke 15:17
Then all of a sudden he remembered who he was. He remembered that he did not have to sit here, starve to death, eating and picking up behind pigs. He remembered his position and he remembered that he could go back home to a place in which he did not have to suffer like he was. And that is exactly what he did and his father welcomed him back with open arms.
So how many of us daughters of the King have gone and wasted all of our wealth and are out here living like peasants forgetting that we are a princess. Forgetting that we have a wealthy father at home that can save us AND welcome us with open arms no matter what we have done.
The ways of the world or the works of the flesh (see my blog here) is only cute for so long. When you get to a place where you are struggling, looking crazy, and then like the lost son you will remember yourself. Remember who you are and who you belong to. You do not have to go out here and give yourself to every man, get used to a life of struggling, to let people tear you down, to be treated like crap, or to be beat down by anyone else. Who would do that to royalty and as someone in the royal family why would you allow it?
Remember yourself. Come back to the King, take your place as a princess, and don’t care what anyone else has to say about it. When the lost son returned, his father was not mad in fact he celebrated the fact his son has returned to him. And the other son became angry that his father was so willing to allow the lost son to take back his position.
And guess what? The father did not care! This was his house and it was his wealth and he was going to celebrate his lost child. Just like God wants to celebrate you, if you were to come back to Him. He is not going to care what you did or what other people have to say about you. You are still royalty in his eyes, but for a brief moment you have forgotten yourself and sought out to live like a slave. But now that you have returned, God keeps no grudges and you can be all that you were meant to be.
So I ask you, why daughters of the King have you forgotten your royal position? Why do you set out and live below what God has intended for you? Why have you allowed other people to take what belongs to you and why have you ripped off your royal robes? Just like the lost son you need to come to your senses and remember yourself. Know what you deserve and know that you have a King as a father and an inheritance waiting for you. Do not go away like some servant living in obscurity.
