Crowned... One Jewel At A Time
1 John 5: 14-15
14|We have courage in God's presence because we are sure that he hears us if we ask him for anything that is according to his will. 15| He hears us when we ask him and since we know this is true, we know also that he gives us what we ask of him.
Kings and Queens, I read these scriptures and they stuck with me. I wrote them in my journal and bookmarked them to come back to review. These scriptures made me realize something about myself.
Verse 14 says we have courage in God's presence because we are sure that he hears us if we ask him for anything that is according to his will.
We have courage in God's presence| It is only in Gods presence is when we have courage, there are times where I get scared of the things that God has called me to do. I get scared because I look at the task before me and I look at it only through the view of my perspective and lens (which is limited), and not through the of God's view and lens which is why I become overwhelmed.
It is only after we have courage is when we become sure (which means to have or be confident) that he hears us if we ask him for anything. Our courage and confidence show that we will trust him.
Now the last part of scripture 14 is really funny because it states that we can have courage in his presence, be sure (confident) that he will hear us if we ask for anything that is according to HIS will, not our will but HIS.
So, King or Queen, you can have all the courage in God's presence in the world, you can be so sure of him but if what you are asking for is not in God's will.
It won't happen!!!!
Now thankfully, the word is not as brutal as mankind or my exclamation points, lol. Verse 15, goes on to say that, he hears us when we ask him and since we know this is true, we know also that he gives us what we ask of him.
Verse 15 reassures us that God does hear, just because he does not give us things that are outside of HIS will does not mean that he does not take the time to listen to us.
He hears us when we ask and since we know that is true since we have confidence and courage in what we are asking, we should also know that we give us what we ask of him as long as it is according to HIS will and not ours.
God always has a way of giving us our hearts desires, it may not be the way we want it to be, or look the way we want it to look but it, in the end, you will GET CROWNED
Getting crowned is the art of receiving the jewels of your heart desires, your crown will have big jewels, small jewels and will tell the story of how each one of those jewels represented your journey of being created, covered and carried according to God's will, your crown would serve as the display of living Romans 8:28, which states:
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose
Kings and Queens continue to have courage, continue to have confidence, continue to ask, seek and knock, continue to trust that it will all work out and continue to stay crowned.
Know that your jewels of knowledge and wisdom are apart of your legacy, it's not about you. It's about you being the willing vessel to use the jewels of knowledge and wisdom to crown this world.
Lets crown this world, one jewel at a time.
