As a result of being the child of my father and mother, I've grown up to be the confident woman I am today, knowing that I will be all I aspire to be. There's this unrelenting and unapologetic level of boldness on the inside that comes as a side-effect of knowing the child of whom I am. It's natural. In-born. A feeling that can't be easily unraveled. A result of a deep understanding of who I am.
I say all these, boasting of the earthly parents God gave me. But what about the Giver of life? What about the One who was before time began? The One who fashioned me in my mother's womb and catapulted me into a destiny bigger than I thought I'd ever experience.
"I am, more than anything else, a child of the King."
Know the child of whom you are. You are a child of the king. You are royalty. It doesn't matter what physical family you were born into, because some of you reading this might have had one or two problems while growing up with your family. But you were born into your family for a reason. No, your life is not merely about what you can receive from the world, it's really more about what you can give. Forget how the world has failed you. Push aside thoughts of how someone has limited your progress. Broaden your mindset right now. You were born to bring a gift into this world, a rare innate ability God has placed inside you that, when you find it, nothing (and no one) will be able to stop you.
So, friends, today you should hold your heads up high and walk around with some extra dose of confidence. Because you are a child of the King. The Author of life as you know it. He has given you what it takes to thrive. To succeed. To excel. To beat all the odds. To rise above indignation. To be an outlier. To walk among kings. To thread upon serpents. To be ROYALTY. Now and forever.
