I am so excited! I have been working on my first book, “Daughter of the King, Possessing Your Spiritual Inheritance.” We are members of God’s royal family. If you have put your faith in Jesus Christ as your Savior and Lord, you are a the daughter of the King! You are His beloved.
God’s Hidden Jewels!
“And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels”
(Malachi 3:17 King James Version – KJV)
You are God’s jewels! His treasured possession! Somebody special to Him. He has chosen you to be “His treasured possession” (Deuteronomy 7:6). Satan attempted to diminish our value as women, but God has done everything possible to clearly communicate that we are one of His most precious treasures. We were created in His image to be “image bearers” and “carriers of His glory”.
I am not a scholar nor a theologian. I don’t have a degree in Biblical Studies. I’m just an ordinary woman who loves and obeys her Heavenly Father. Our relationship with God makes all the difference in our lives. Our love for Him, our willingness to serve Him, and our dependence upon the Holy Spirit.
Never in my life did I consider writing a book about anything, let alone my faith journey. Just like the disciples said in Acts 4:20, “As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.” In the book I share how the Lord bought me out of my personal Egypt. I also share many of the biblical truths I’ve learned from the Bible, personal experiences, and from many courageous men and women of God the Father used along this journey towards fulfilling the divine calling on my life.
It is God’s desire for you to know Him. The Bible says, people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge. They perish or go astray from the plans and purposes of God without vision. God wants to reveal Himself to you! He knows exactly how to get your attention. He is able to reveal Himself in many ways.
Many of you may have questioned what God’s purpose is for your life. You’ve probably read books, attended seminars and conferences, and taken courses seeking to know what God has purposed for you to do in the earth. But even after you’ve tried all those things, you still may be wondering “what is my purpose?” ‘When is it really going to happen for me?”
This book is written to encourage and strengthen women from all walks of life to find your identity and purpose in Christ Jesus and pursue and fulfill His purpose for you in whatever sphere of influence He has assigned you.
I believe every one of us has a story to tell. Join me on a spiritual journey of faith as I share how God divinely orchestrated my steps to bring me to the place I am today. I have not arrived, but I “press toward the high calling of Christ.”
Throughout history in the Old and New Testament there have been many women who have made a difference in the Kingdom of God. Several women in particular have inspired me over the years. They were women who were obedient to God, exercised their faith and rose above challenges to make a difference in their generation.
They were ordinary women called to do extraordinary things. Women such as Deborah, Ruth, Esther, and many more. Then there are lesser known women like Abigail, Hagar, and a certain woman mentioned in Luke 11:2. Women of faith who made an impact on history. It’s no coincidence that these women are spoken of in the Bible. Their stories and their lives help to influence our faith today.
In my personal journey, what I’ve learned from these women and their stories have helped to propel me forward toward fulfilling my God given purpose. I hope to interweave their stories within my story to share how I have gleaned from their wisdom and faith to persevere along this journey of faith and push beyond obstacles that could have ended my pursuit of the One who created me for His purposes.
Allow me to share with you a little about some of these women. Let’s begin with Eve, “Mother of All Living.” Her story is one of the most famous stories in the Bible. Eve was the first women created by God in His image. She was the wife of Adam, and the mother of Cain and Abel. Genesis 2:15-17 says, God planted a garden in Eden and put the man (Adam) there to work the ground and keep it in order. He commanded Adam, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die. At that time God had not created Eve. Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him” (Genesis 2:18). Eve was deceived by Satan’s lie and disobeyed God and both Adam and Eve were expelled from the garden (Genesis 3:4-6; 23-24). One thing I should note about Eve is that she took responsibility for her sin (Genesis 3:13).
Mary the mother of Jesus modeled an attitude of obedience and trust even when she didn’t understand God’s plan to use her to bring forth His Son. An angel appeared to her one day, announcing she had been chosen to give birth to Jesus (Luke 1:30-33). Can you imagine that? An angel appearing to you telling you that you will have a child when you are not married, nor have you been with a man? Mary submitted herself to God’s will (v. 38), and she faithfully followed Jesus from birth until His death on the cross. Even after the death of Jesus she constantly prayed with other believers for the Spirit in Jerusalem (Acts 1:12-14).
These are just a few of the more notable women whose stories have served as an example to women everywhere. Satan has his best to exploit and degrade women since that fatal day in the garden by changing God’s truth into a lie to mislead women into thinking they are less than who God created them to be. Yet God has an eternal plan to restore the essence of a woman and use His daughters in these last days for His Kingdom purposes. I believe women will be a force to be reckoned with. We can no longer be complacent and allow Satan to destroy our families, our children and our livelihood. Women everywhere are hearing the call of God, coming out of complacency and taking back what Satan has attempted to steal from them.
God’s hidden jewels have a deep love and adoration for Him; they have a reverential awe and profound respect of His majesty and authority. Many of God’s daughters have faithfully served throughout the years with no apparent reward, but your service has not gone unnoticed. There is coming a day when He will act on your behalf. And that day has arrived!
Who are the favored ones whom He calls His “jewels”? Malachi 3:16 tells us, “Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name.”
We are living in the most amazing times regardless of what it looks like. I am in awe of what God is doing in the lives of women everywhere. Rise up daughters of the King and possess what God has already possessed for you.
