Every morning I drink cappuccino. The other day the microwave beeped to let me know my cup of water was ready. As I went toward the microwave, my quick 3-year-old grandgirl, Amiyah, beat me to it and opened the door.
As her little hand reached for the cup, I quickly said, “No Amiyah, it’s going to be hot. Grandma will get it.”
She turned around, sighed and said, “I just wanted to get it for you, Princess.”
I have to say that her tiny self made her 41-year-old Grandma feel pretty special.
It’s what I call her. She sees these chicks and she believes she is one of them.
If I am a believer in Jesus Christ, that is exactly what I am. The Bible tells us we are part of royalty. I am His Princess. But somewhere along the way of life I don’t believe that I am who He says I am.
In the movie Aladdin, Princess Jasmine, left her palace to discover the world and denied her place in royal lineage. How often, do we do that in our spiritual walk? We walk away from our position as God’s Princess and live in the world. We make choices that don’t reflect Jesus Christ at all. We blend in with those who don’t know Him.
Many times when life has gotten tough, instead of believing who I am in Christ, I choose to leave the palace and venture out into the world. Instead of letting Jesus do what He does best and handle my life, I push Him away and get the cup out of the microwave myself. And He stands in the shadows saying,
I just wanted to get it for you, Princess.
WHATEVER you are going through in your life, if you have accepted Christ as your Savior, then you be the one to back up and let your Savior be just that. Your Savior.
And you just be His Princess.
1 Peter 2:9
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
