Memorise: And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. Revelation 1:6
Read: 1st Samuel 16:1; 11-13; Bible in one year: Jeremiah 37:11-39:18, Acts 22:30-23:11
Prior to the anointing of David as king of
in 1st Samuel 16:11-13, he was ordinary like any other person. But
after the anointing came on him, he received supernatural grace to accomplish
great things for God. The choice of David was neither an accident nor a
coincidence. In 1st Samuel 13:14, the Bible says this concerning
“….the LORD hath sought him a man after his own heart…”
This reveals that there was a solemn search that led God to David in the wilderness. Also, in 1st Samuel 16:7, God said:
“… for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.”
It is therefore clear that qualification for divine royalty strictly depends on the condition of a person’s heart towards God.
Divine royalty puts a fellow in the position of authority over all circumstances of life. At the command of a ‘divine royal’ sicknesses, poverty, failure and the demons behind them must bow. The authority, responsibilities and honour attached to divine royalty suggest that a heart focused on God is necessary to be eligible for such high honour and glory. The title “Divine Royalty” is therefore strictly reserved for born-again and sanctified children of God. To this end, Daniel 7:18 reveals that the saints of God shall take and possess the kingdom forever and ever.
“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:”
1st Peter 2:9
One thing is sure: a person can only manifest the status of divine royalty if and only if the anointing continues to rest upon him or her. We must note that there are things divine royals cannot do and certain types of relationships they cannot keep. 1st Corinthians 10:23 says,
“All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.”
As you begin to live according to the high standard of heaven in agreement with the Word of God, may the anointing for divine royalty fall upon you today in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
You are a divine royal and a member of God’s royal priesthood; as for grace to live up to expectation today.
