Testing, Testing 123… Are You Ready to Be Queen?

The Queen is the beneficiary of her King’s love, and the gift of salvation; being washed in the blood of the Lamb Who died on Calvary gives life eternal. What then does the Queen do with this privilege to be free from the stains of sin? Surely, she steps forward to do the work she was created to do.

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do

Ephesians 2:10

A Queen relies on her King for guidance and direction; she is committed to making things happen; she is not afraid to take on the challenge to:

…be the change she wants to see in the world.

Mahatma Ghandi

In reflecting on The Queen Life, are you prepared to put on your crown, ascend your throne and facilitate change? Within the boldness of a Queen; there lies the power and provision to do all that she has to do. The King Himself will provide all that she needs; it is written:

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:19

The world needs all that you are; and all that you will become by the grace of God. Do you sense that there is a special work for you to do? I believe that you do.

And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”

Esther 4:14



Dear Heavenly Father,

Search my heart and test my motives to determine how ready I am to answer Your call. I want to be ready to serve You in spirit and in truth. I want to live The Queen Life; I know that it comes with the responsibility to trust and obey You, so I rely totally on Your love, grace and power to direct me in the way I am to go so I can fulfill my purpose.

Testing, Testing, 123…I’m ready to be QUEEN!!!

In Jesus’s Name I pray – Amen
