18 Jan - How To Live Like A King And Win

I was watching footage of Denmark's coronation of their King and also the ascension of Princess Mary to take on her role as the first Australian-born Queen. As a result, I started reading about all the rights and responsibilities of royalty and also of the offspring of the new King and Queen and what their new titles meant for everyone. 


Being part of the royal household and a child of a King or Queen has its perks and there are some things royalty simply expects as their rightful birthright and privilege, which got me thinking about how much we expect when we choose to become part of the King of Kings - (God himself, creator of the universe's,) family and household. 


Here’s the amazing truth: when you choose to follow Jesus you belong to His family, and because of that you have bestowed on you all the rights and benefits of a co-heir with Him. Plus he says you have the victory against every power and principality who comes against you.

“Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ"..(Romans 8:17)


Why, because Jesus already defeated your biggest enemy when he died on the Cross at Calvary and rose again. This means everything you face in life Jesus has already defeated and rendered powerless to harm you. You no longer need to pray FOR victory; you can pray FROM victory. You don't have to struggle to be a winner. You already are one!


That simple truth changes our whole position in life. Whatever we face, Jesus has the answer. He's won, so we also have won the battle.  I guess that's why He says to us. "Don't be anxious about anything, pray about everything but as you do rejoice because, hey you may have trouble but don't worry, I've overcome the world and as part of my family, you are royalty and have all of my backing." (My paraphrasing but you get the gest).

Think about that You have the King's backing and His seal upon your life and all the benefits, authority, and privileges that come with that. So you can boldly ask and He'll answer, and you can be joyfully confident because you are an overcomer and more than a conqueror through Jesus. (John 16:33; 1 Peter 2:9; Galatians 4:5-7; Phil 4:6-7; Hebrews 4:16)


The Word says it so we can bank on it and Jesus who said it. He is alert and actively watching over his word - his testament - and it's a legal document that Heaven takes very seriously to fulfil when we take hold of it. (Jeremiah 1:12)


Today I encourage you to think, pray, and act FROM your position of victory. It's your inheritance and rightful birthright as a co-heir of the King of Kings.

For more encouragement, you can also listen to my podcast "Going Deeper" Check out this week's episode on how powerful our words are in shaping our life and listen to "Wordfast" live now.


Prayer: Lord, thank you that I am free, healed, forgiven, prosperous, and victorious because of Jesus and all he has done for me. I walk in that victory and my inheritance as a child of the King today. In Jesus' name Amen.
