Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(1 Kings 1)
“Don’t Let the World Take Your Crown.”
Text: 1 Kings 1:5
“Then Adonijah the son of Haggith exalted himself, saying, “I will be king”; and he prepared for himself chariots and horsemen, and fifty men to run before him.”
The warning “Don’t Let the World Take Your Crown,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning. These words “I will be the king,” were first spoken by satan himself when he said “i will be like the Most High,” as recorded in Isaiah 14:14. he is still trying futilely to take God’s Crown.
Absalom tried to take David’s Crown, Adonijah tried to take Solomon’s Crown, and the world will try to take our Crown too!
We are warned as the Philadelphia Church was warned:
“Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.” (Rev.3:11).
The Greek word for crown here has a “diadema,” which means insignia or rank of authority. This is not a literal crown but military insignia indicating rank of authority; stripes on the sleeve, insignia on the collar or a military uniform.
As Warriors we wear this “diadema” as a crown of authority.
“Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”(Luke 10:19).
We are not to be conformed to this world system:
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”(Rom.12:1-2).
To allow this world system to conform us to their lawlessness is a disgrace to our Commander and King - and a disgrace to the uniform we wear as a Warrior and the insignia we bear of rank and authority in the Kingdom of God.
Don’t Let the World Take Your Crown! Stand fast in Who You Are In Christ. You Are His son, You Are His daughter. Walk like this at all times! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
