But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. (1 Peter 2:9,
"The royal air is here!" Those were news reports several years as Prince Charles and Kate welcomed their first child into the world. The media-both national and international were on the edge of their seats wondering when the big moment would finally arrive. And when it did, every news network and magazine reporter were there to capture it.
Have you ever felt like you weren't as important as the world's definition of royalty? Let me encourage you with some fantastic news. God says you are more important than anything going on in this world! Ladies, you were so important to the Lord that He sent His son to die
for you! In this verse, we're reminded of a few names that God has for us. He calls us a royal priesthood, a chosen people! Did you get that? He chose you! My sister, what is it you're struggling with today? Your identity is only found in one person, one place. Jesus!
Father, I pray for each reader. Help her realize her identity is only found in You. Show her that as special some people may think worldly royalty is, You see her as so much more. In Jesus Name, Amen.
