Today’s 333 Devotional: “Royalty in the Making”
A lion’s majesty speaks to the Lord in his defense and deliverance of His people.
“As a lion roars, and a young lion over his prey (When a multitude of shepherds is summoned against him, He will not be afraid of their voice nor be disturbed by their noise), so the Lord of hosts will come down to fight for Mount Zion and for its hill.” (Isaiah 31:4)
It’s this very quality the Lord says about His Son, Jesus the Messiah.
“Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against His Anointed (Messiah), saying, ‘Let us break their bonds in pieces and cast away their cords from us.’” (Psalm 2:1-3)
Just as the voices of those shepherds didn’t bother the lion, what these kings and rulers say doesn’t bother the Lord. In fact, it says the Lord will laugh at such a display.
He then identifies the Anointed One as the Messiah saying, You are My Son, today I have begotten You … You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.” (Psalm 2:7, 9)
This quality of majesty can also be applied to us, but not in the way some may think. We are not kings and queens ruling over God and His creation, rather we are royalty in the making.
When someone is engaged to a king, they will become queen when the marriage is consummated. The same can be said for someone engaged to a duke, they are a duchess in the making.
We are royalty in the making because we are engaged to Jesus. We are called the bride of Christ, and when that marriage occurs, we will be royalty as well.
The Bible says that when we return with Jesus we will rule and reign with Him (2 Timothy 2:12, Revelation 20:4, Daniel 7:17-18).
