But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;  (1 Peter 2:9)


Let me remind you who you are. You are a member of the royal family of God, the Sovereign over all the universe. You are pictured in His most treasured family portraits. You are a child of the King of all kings, the supreme ruler over heaven and earth. He loves you and has given you great authority and powerful assignments as a member of His eminent ruling family.

You possess royal privileges, royal perspective, royal demeanor, and royal wealth. You are protected and empowered in every particular way, and you exercise supernatural authority over the earth, just as your Father does. His strength is available to you in every form, in every manner, and in every situation. You are designed to rule, reign, and decree His will in this realm and in the realm of angels and principalities.

You are free from the curse, released from all toil, unburdened to soar, prepared to prosper, fashioned to rule, equipped to lead. All of this flows from your royal identity, which can never be changed. It is who you are forever.


Father, thank you for delivering me out of darkness into your marvelous light and making me a member of Your royal family in Christ Jesus. By faith, I will walk in the divine authority and kingdom assignments You have given me.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
