For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. (Romans 14:11 KJV).
A prince as long as he is unaware that he is heir to the throne will behave like a mere servant. When the time comes when it is revealed to him that he is a prince imagine how it will feel for him to know that he served as servant to those who he was not meant to be ruled by.
We are the children of God and we are joint heirs with Christ. As long as we are truly unaware of this fact we will continue to be worse than servants to the issues of this world being controlled by the elements and our own lustful needs and desires.
When we regain our sense of identity as children of God , as joint heirs with Christ, as the heirs of promise, waiting in line to rule; our whole perspective changes. We are no longer controlled by the issues of life; what we will eat, what we will wear, where we will lay our heads. We will know what is ours by legal and divine right and we will demand it and possess it. If we are not in possession of it yet, it is often just a matter of time. We do not have to beg for it, it is ours. God knows how to reveal the way to access his provisions which are laid in store for his children.
I cannot imagine Prince William or Prince Harry begging for a place to live and food to eat. It is unthinkable.
Begging for something which is yours does not feel good. No matter how humble and loving you are, you can only bear to beg for something which is yours for a short time.
You beg because; You do not know it is yours, You haven’t paid the price for it, You have abandoned it and it has been reclaimed by someone else, You’ve lost the prove of the evidence that it is yours.
All the above is not true when it comes to a child of God who knows his or her identity.
‘Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will’ (Ephesians 1:3, 5, 6, 11 KJV).
It was decided long ago that you will rule, that you are blessed, that you will be the child of the most high God through Jesus Christ. The price for you has been paid. You are destined for the throne, to rule with him. There is greatness in you and its source is God himself. He made you for this purpose. You are his.
It is imperative therefore that you do not live like a servant or a slave to sin, as one who has to be forced to comply with his master’s wishes and has no future or inheritance or promise of sonship. We were made by God for God and while you live, your life must be submitted to him (God). That is the only way to prove that you understand and know who you are Him. There are no grey areas. You are either submitted to God or you are submitted to the evil one. We all submit to something even if we are unaware of this fact.
God will not beg for your submission to him. Whether you submit or not, you are his. He made you. The question is will you submit now as a son or daughter of God with a promise and an inheritance which is sure? Or will you submit later as a servant of the evil one having forfeited your access to sonship and having allowed yourself to be ruled and ravaged by the enemy of your soul who has deceived and robbed you what God had for you?
One way or another, we all will bow to our maker. How you do it, my friend that is your choice.
‘For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else. I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the Lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right. Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the Lord? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me. Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear’. (Isaiah 45:18, 19, 21-23 KJV)
