Holy and Royal

First Lady S. Proctor

Feb 21, 2023

I don’t know about you but I certainly was not born in a royal family nor with a silver spoon waiting at
my crib.

As a matter of fact I was delivered at home by a midwife. There were no hospital in the town I was born in that would accept blacks. My mom was single and lived with her mother and siblings. I remember growing up as a little girl, sleeping was more of a chore than rest. What I mean is that sometimes I would have to remove someone else’s foot from my face, back or endure the snoring of three other people in bed with me. There were times all we had to eat was a slice of bread with syrup. My grandmother was the head of the house, she was a maid, my mom was a maid. They went to work from Monday to Friday cleaning other peoples home. I would go to help them sometimes. Doesn’t sound like royalty to me.

However, now I can look back at my life and say that I was blessed to have people that loved, protected and provided for me the best they could. They were not royal in the eyes of others, but they are truly royal to me.

No matter our background or what family status we may have been attached to from birth, there is no greater and more royal family than the family of God. The word of God say’s through Christ Jesus we have received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out Abba, Father! The Spirit himself testifies together with our spirit that we are God’s children, and if children, also heirs. Heirs of God and coheirs with Christ. (Romans 8:15-17) We are now a people with hope in God through Jesus his son.

Brethren let us remember that the One who has blessed us to become His royal children has also called us to be holy. (I Peter 1:14-16) for it is written Be holy, because I am Holy. Our new birth in Christ Jesuschanges our spiritual nature as we grow daily into his image. How we do this is by desiring and applying God’s word to our life daily. We must read, believe, study, meditate and apply His word consistently. Whatever we don’t understand in His word ask him to help us, He will.

God himself have made us a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation and a people for his possession, so that you may proclaim the praises of the one who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. (I Peter 2:9-10) No matter your occupation, financial status,whether you were delivered by a midwife, if you live in a hut or house. If you are a child of the HighestGod you have been declared royal by Him.

Know who you belong too. Never doubt God for your life, your Heavenly Father is confident in himself and knows what is best for his children. Go out be confident and be great Holy and Royal Ones.
