Introduction

Experiences inspired this article from my journey of discovering the eternal love of God that set me free. This particular piece will discuss how God considers His daughters precious and valuable.

These lessons were written and arranged for a women's conference that our church hosted.

This study centers on the following portion of Scripture.

Kings’ daughters are among Your honorable women; At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir. Listen, O daughter, Consider and incline your ear; Forget your own people also, and your father’s house; So the King will greatly desire your beauty; Because He is your Lord, worship Him. And the daughter of Tyre will come with a gift; The rich among the people will seek your favor. The royal daughter is all glorious within the palace Her clothing is woven with gold. 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 shall be brought; They shall enter the King’s palace.

— Psalm 45:9-15

One of the most significant challenges of women sometimes is to believe that they are loved. Many of us have spent a good portion of our lives attempting to convince ourselves that we are truly loved through the dramatics of our relationships.

I have concluded on this leg of my journey that true eternal, everlasting love can only realize through a relationship with our Father in Heaven through His Son Jesus Christ.

Some of us have entered into that relationship but have not truly comprehended our positions as King's Daughters and have not truly captured the emotional depth of His love. This understanding is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning this.

. . . that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
— Ephesians 3:17

This lesson will address the benefits of being a beloved, powerful, and influential daughter of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

A Gospel Transformation

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

— Psalm 45:12

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 believed, walked, 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

The consciousness of His love becomes 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 many lost dead-end ways or at least trying to pretend externally they have them. 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 it with everyone.

Clothed In His Righteousness

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

— Psalm 45:13

Now we can see our beauty, and so can everyone else. Because what was once dead and dormant in us is now resurrected and being reflected. Our garments of shame are 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 reflects God's divine nature and character in us that is interwoven with 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, redemption, healing, and love have filled us on the inside and given our lives significant meaning, substance, and value.

Brought Before the King

"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 shall be brought to You."

— Psalm 45:14

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 God 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, I hope and pray that women will step into a relationship with their Savior God. And in that relationship, they will 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 a 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"
