When does Prince William stop being royal? At what point will Princess Caroline of Monaco be considered a normal citizen? Right. Never. So why do you do that to yourself?
Why do you, a beloved son or daughter of God, an inheritor of his kingdom, relinquish your royalty when life doesn’t go as expected? You have complete access to the throne of God. But when you mess up, instead of running to your father for help and healing, you disinherit yourself from his grace, and sentence yourself to isolation in a spiritual and emotional prison.
Every day you choose to live your inheritance in loving humility, joyful confidence, and overflowing grace, your Father the King is building you into a brilliant and powerful son or daughter.
Stay in his love. Thrive in your identity.
“May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light” (Colossians 1:11-12).
