The King's Daughter (Part VI the Conclusion Our Power and Influence)

Source

In Part I of this series we learned that God's original purpose and intent for us as women has not changed since the Garden of Paradise. He still wills for us to be powerful and persuasive under His authority as it was in the beginning.

Part II of this series revealed God's view of us as precious valuable creatures.

Part III involved our part and detailed our obligation to listen to Him and value what He says.

In Part IV we tackled those spheres of influence "our fathers house and our own people" that may have played a role in preventing us from seeing an accurate perspective of God and ourselves.

Part V We took an in depth look at worship and how who and what we worship really determines the esteem we receive and experience.

Our conclusion to this series will address the benefits of being a beloved, powerful, and influential daughter of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

"And the daughter (citizens) of Tyre will come with a tribute; The rich among the people will seek your presence "

In terms of the Gospel that drew us near to God and saved us, Benson commentary makes this note

"the Tyrians..before many others, were to be converted to Christ."

The Lord Jesus displayed in us will attract others to follow Him too.

When they heard about all he was doing, many people came to him from Judea, Jerusalem, Idumea, and the regions across the Jordan and around Tyre and Sidon ~ Mark 3:8

Now that we have heard the truth, believed the truth, walked in the truth, and experienced the truth we become transformed in our thinking, behaving, and reacting...

But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. ~ II Corinthians 3:18

Consciousness of His love is now a part of us producing new habits of living and inviting new experiences as well as new relationships. Love and confidence are attractive qualities. Most of the world is looking for them in a lot of lost dead end ways or at least trying to pretend externally they have them and these genuine qualities can only be found in fellowship with Christ as our Lord, which introduces the plan of salvation that we have experienced, He wishes us to share with all.

"The royal daughter is all glorious within the palace; Her clothing is woven with gold."

Now we can see our beauty and so can everyone else because what was once dead and dormant in us is now been resurrected and being reflected to those around us. Our garments of shame have been replaced

I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, My soul shall be joyful in my God; For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. ~ Isaiah 61:10

The word Woven means worked into a shape of artistry. It also means elaborately embellished like the setting of a gem. Isaiah 62:2 says that we are a royal diadem (jeweled crown) in the hand of our God, not in our own hands, not in the hands of our husbands, our children, our bosses, or our friends. Only in God's hands will we find our beauty.

For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. ~ Ephesians 2:10

“But now, O Lord, You are our Father; we are the clay, and You our potter; and all we are the work of Your hand.” (Isaiah 64:8)

The NIV says that her gown is interwoven with gold. Gold in the Bible is reflective of God's divine nature and character in us that is interwoven us through faith by trial. As we begin to spend time in the King's chambers beholding His beauty and basking in His love we will drop our fig leaves of shame and put on the robe that is woven with His nature and qualities as we choose with each trial and circumstance to trust Him.

One thing I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple. ~ Psalm 27:4

This verse in our study also says that we are now all glorious within. This Hebrew word for glory Kavod means to be weighty in terms of having substance and value. His forgiveness, His redemption, His healing, and His love have filled us on the inside and given our lives great meaning, substance and value.

"She shall be brought to the King in robes of many colors; The virgins, her companions who follow her, shall be brought to You. With gladness and rejoicing they

We as women are influential by nature. Influence is a powerful force that can be used for good or bad and we see many examples of this in the female personalities exhibited in scriptures.

As the crooked places get made straight and the rough places are made smooth hopefully those who have not known Him but have witnessed the good work He is doing in us will desire to see the King too and will be brought unto Him.

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, ~ Matthew 28:19

We will not discover the reality of the heights and depths of God's love for us by consulting friends, husbands, or our experiences. God will not compete with our other lovers. We will only truly realize this truth by spending time with the King, believing what He says, and behaving in His truth.

In conclusion it is my hope and prayer that women will step into a relationship with their savior God and be delivered from everything that has stood in the way of them fulfilling the powerful and influential purpose God has for them, whether that obstacle was and is personal sin or the effects of sin from another.

There is no life situation, event, circumstance, sin, or regret that can trump the love that God has for us. As soon as we realize this we are set free.

He Loves Me

Petals from a daisy flower

Plucked from it's own stigma

Beheld in childlike wonder

And pondering the enigma


With the tossing of the petals

That say He loves me so

In spite of graceless blunders

And the awkwardness I show


He knows my faults and failures

Deficiencies and blame

Yet with the toss of every petal

The message is the same

"He loves me"

Tamarajo: To me as well as to God, there is no distinction between man or woman for we are all created in His Image that of spirit and love.

Amen Dave, I think men and women in their proper function in relationship with God make a complete picture of unity and love. I seriously believe this was the intention of the male female relationship, to be a reflection of that magnificent love.

Blessed by your visit and comment.

What a great series, Tamarajo! I pray you have opportunities to share this with other women in various formats. Women need to understand how Jesus did come and elevate the value and worth of a woman...not supress it. God bless!

Tamarajo 5 years ago from Southern Minnesota Author

Thank You His daughter. That is so true that Jesus came and elevated the value and worth of women. He came to restore His original intentions for her.

I wasted so much of my life fighting to gain that sense of value in so many unproductive and even destructive ways until I discovered that this could only be realized in one way and in one person and that is from God alone.

Thank you for reading the series. I have been blessed by your visits and commentary along the way.

Great hub with great thoughts to live by. Truly God's love is awesome and this love alone should satisfy us. There will be no greater than God's love, our completeness is in this love alone. This love alone never fades even our youth has already faded. This love alone is ever true and faithful even everyone else has forsaken us.We should find our perfect security only in God's love. Thank you for sharing these timeless truths here at Hubpages. Blessings to you and your family always. Best regards.

Thank you Cristina. He is God and there is no other that can satisfy. There was a time in my life that I looked to relationships for all that I needed. It wasn't until I surrendered to Him that I finally found what I was looking for.

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughtful comment.

Very nice series Tamara - and as you put at the end: "There is no life situation, event, circumstance, sin, or regret that can trump the love that God has for us. As soon as we realize this we are set free." - AMEN

I have also always liked the verse about the Potter's clay which is an excellent example of how we are continually molded into more perfection through the grace of our Lord.

Another favorite is the "Virtuous Woman" from Proverbs 31, showing how such a crucial role is played by women in a loving relationship with their partner. Be blessed always... Rev.Ted

Tamarajo 5 years ago from Southern Minnesota Author

Thank you Rev Ted. I used to view the proverbs 31 in view of how far it seemed I was from that but I see it so differently now as in being molded as you say into perfection. It is now something to look forward as in what I will be like as He works in me.

I appreciate your visit and thoughtful comment.
