For three years I’ve been ministering the Gospel trying to convince so many people of how amazing they are. All the while, I would shy away from acknowledging how amazing Father God made me to be. In the back of my mind, I always believed it’d be too cocky of me to think of myself as a star. At 4:42 am on December 15th, I realized something phenomenal, and I have to share it. I am a star!
The Lord has been wanting me to recognize who He created me to be for a while. I would be arrogant if I continued to shy away from the reality of being a star in His eyes. True humility calls for total agreement with who God says you are. Nothing more, nothing less. If He said I was the scum of the earth, humility would dictate for me to agree. However, He did not call me to be the scum of the earth. He said I’m the apple of His eye.
I’m getting to understand the concept of sin and how demonic it is. I also realize how important ministering the Gospel is to the kingdom. But now, more than anything, I believe my Father wants me to understand my true identity. I don’t think I ever really took the time to acknowledge how much of a queen God made me to be. Being a queen commands respect. Now, I don’t deserve that respect in my own right. It so happens to come with the package. Being a “son” who serves in His kingdom puts me in a position that is high above the world’s standard.
For example, I’ve always considered getting a husband who’s sold out to Jesus a blessing. I still believe that. My Bible tells me marriage is a gift from God. Nonetheless, in so many ways, I now know that I am the blessing in the marriage as well. My father wants me to know that. All my life I have drawn men to me. Without even trying they would come and fall at my feet. At the time, “finding” the right man who fell at my feet was my goal. I was not taking the time to acknowledge how much of a blessing I was in the equation.
But now at this very moment, I realize why men would fall at my feet. It’s because He made me a blessing. His glory in me will always attract men to me. Not only will I be blessed by my Father with the man of God He will give me but also will that man be blessed by my Father with the woman of God He made me to be. I know who I am, I know where I come from, and I know who I serve. And no matter what life throws at me, I will never get that twisted. No amount of money, success, or things of this world will take my eyes off of the living God. To be in the presence of someone who’s lived out this revelation is a blessing. For a man to call me his wife, he has no choice but to be blessed.
While this sounds very arrogant, it is not. My father has been waiting quite a while for me to get this concept through my thick skull. There are levels to this “humbleness”! For some people, it takes years and years even into old age to get it. I praise the Lord that at 26 years of age I’ve got it. I’m His precious daughter. I’m a queen. He loves me. He cherishes me. He would never dare give me away to someone He did not believe was worthy of His glory in me. I am my Father’s star. A star and a child of the living, most highest, most powerful God!
So now at this moment, I take the time to acknowledge who I am. And I thank Him for making me this way. Now let’s just be clear, I cannot be this “star” without my Lord. I’m a dead, cold, crumbled up leaf left on the ground to be thrown away after the fall season is over without my Lord. But with Him, oh baby, I’m the bomb diggity.com! And I encourage all of you who are true sons and daughters of the Living God, to acknowledge who you truly are! This is not a call to be egotistic, but this is a call to recognize who you are because of whose you are.
Now the man Moses was very humble, more than all men who were on the face of the earth. Numbers 12:3
For thus says the LORD of hosts, “After glory He has sent me against the nations which plunder you, for he who touches you, touches the apple of His eye. Zechariah 2:8
Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2
