Sunday, we celebrated our beautiful mother's who have made an impact in our lives. Pastor Hadsell brought forth an encouraging word, which you can check out here.
In Sunday's Sermon, three identifiers of royalty were given.
Members of the family have a couple things in common: they are related by blood, and they have the same last name.
In numerous passages of Scripture, we are told that we have been bought with a price: the blood of Jesus. Because of this, when we accept Him as our Savior, our inheritance is switched to that of the Kingdom of God.
Ephesians 1:4 says the following: "For He chose us in Him BEFORE the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight. In love He PREDESTINED us to be ADOPTED as His sons through Jesus Christ. In accordance with His pleasure and will."
Before He created the heavens and the earth, He chose YOU. Every single part of you.
Are you getting this incredible truth? It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, what family you were born into--He has already chosen you, BEFORE creation
1 Peter 2:9 adds a greater truth:
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.
So not only are you chosen, but you’re chosen ROYALTY. Throw that in the devil’s face. HA! So, darling. When the enemy tells you that you’re not chosen. You stand up and tell him “My Daddy God says I’m chosen. Not only that, but I am chosen royalty.” and you straighten your tiara, stand taller and walk away like a boss. You don’t let anyone tell you what you’re not when God tells you what you are.
As the truth of your pedigree settles deep within you, your pursuits will change. They will move from merely surviving the day-to-day to purposeful, intentional Kingdom influence and living.
In the Kingdom, royals pursue two things relentlessly:
Throne Room audience with the King and Protective Warfare.
Worship changes when you know you're royal. When you get in His presence, something rises up in you and says "I want to know you more." When you learn to worship as a royal, the atmosphere around you changes. Hunger for Him. He births this in you.. you don't have to try and find it. Begin to worship the King. Do things that express your passion and reverence while you worship Him.
When you're a royal, your pedigree sets you in line for something greater than you've ever imagined: HIS PRESENCE.
Once you get into the presence of the King, you will want to go back.
It is a natural part of a mother's make-up to pick up a sword and protect those whom she loves most. When you come into His presence, He will arm you with His sword. Once you're armed well, you'll be protective over your family. You'll tell the enemy "not on my watch, you will not have anything if mine in Jesus name." They enemy cannot stand against men and women who say "no!!"
What you pursue identifies who you are. Matthew 6:33
Pursue anointing. Pursue kingdom. Pursue His heart. Everything will be added. He will take care of you.
There is royal power. Wake up to it royal women of God. There's anointing available for you. Matthew 16:19. Keys give you access. They unlock things that need to be unlocked and they lock things that need to be locked.
Pastor finished the sermon by speaking a prophetic word over women, which you can access here.
