We are Daughters of the King

February 3, 2017

I think it is safe to say that nearly every girl dreamt of being a princess. We all have this deep longing in our heart of being rescued by our prince. Although I do think that this desire of a fantasy fairytale has set expectations too high on men, and in turn strained marriages, it makes me wonder – why does every woman have this deep rooted desire to be a princess?

 

We seem to have this built in desire to be unique, set apart, and loved unconditionally. It’s in our nature. Every fiber of our being longs for this. But why is that?

 

Well my dears, it’s because we are created this way. God actually planted these desires in our hearts. And since we are created in God’s image…that means that these are also the desires of God’s heart. He actually longs to be loved unconditionally by us. He wants to be set apart! And it’s actually the first commandment, “Thou shalt have no other Gods before me”.

 

He actually says repeatedly in His word that He is a jealous God.

 

“Do not worship any other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God” – Exodus 34:14

“For the LORD your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.” – Deuteronomy 4:24

 

In fact, when Jesus is asked what the greatest commandment of the Law is…he replies, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment.”

 

Now ladies, if a man told you he loved you with all his HEART and all his SOUL and all his MIND, tell me you would not swoon. Hearts across the world have melted away. With words like that, you might even forgive him for not doing the dishes last night.

 

And yet, this is what God wants from us. He desires a passionate love from us. Just as we desire a passionate love from our men.

 

And as desperately as your heart might long for your prince to come along one day, know that a King is already yours for the taking. All all you have to do is choose Him. For you are a princess. Loved and adored immeasurably by the one who created you. The one who has made you unique and has set you apart.

Good morning world. 🌎 Is anyone else feeling that Monday struggle? Here's some thoughts to start you off on the right foot.⠀
✧⠀
Do you believe that God has bigger plans for you than you have for yourself?⠀
✧⠀
"God is able to do exceedingly and abundantly more than we can even ask or imagine."⠀
Ephesians 3:20⠀
✧⠀
This is one of my favorite verses. Why? Because I can imagine quite a bit. And to think, God has even MORE in store for us, then our brains can even comprehend. That is truly unbelievable.⠀
✧⠀
So start dreaming guys. Because whatever you can come up with, rest in knowing that God wants to bless you even more than you can ask of him. 💫
✧⠀

  • "Keep your eyes on the one who is invisible."⠀
Hebrew 11:27⠀
✧⠀
I read this verse the other day and it stopped me in my tracks. It's not exactly mind-blowing advice, but for some reason, it caught me off guard. It's crazy to me how much of our faith is unseen. ⠀
✧⠀
When we are unsure of the chaos around us. Or when we become discouraged from the struggles in our life. Find strength in knowing that we live by faith, and not by sight. ⠀
✧⠀
Also - I'm excited to share a NEW POST from this gorgeous Navajo-land, The Ultimate Guide to Monument Valley. Love to know what you think! (link in bio!) 💋 www.lavendervines.com⠀
