Queenly Principle #1 – REST IN QUIETNESS & CONFIDENCE
Scripture Focus: Isaiah 30:15 – For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: “In returning and rest shall ye be saved, in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength; but ye would not.
This means that a Queens does not work and toil in her mind, pouring over the last 24 hours, the words spoken, all of the events leading up to, every subtle nuance of every conversation, email and text message and so forth. No! All of this equals WORK. It is not rest.
To rest in Christ means to take your concerns, your heartbreak, your wounds and your pain to God first. It means prayer. It means crying it out. It means allowing yourself to feel the pain and moving through it with God alone.
Queenly Principle #2 – REMAIN SEATED MENTALLY
Scripture Focus: Ephesians 2:6 – and he raised us up with him and SEATED us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus and Colossians 3:1-2 – Therefore, if you have been raised with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, SEATED at the right hand of God.
As a Queen, you are in an ELEVATED position in Christ. Your life is hidden in Christ and you are seated in power and position with HIM. You can’t afford to step down from your position and behave like a common girl enslaved and entangled in her emotions. As a Queen seated in Christ, my heart and my mind must follow my position as a Queen connected to my Source.
This means we are not running around will-nilly in our minds – the “monkey mind”. We quiet and still our minds to hear the voice of God by remaining seated.
Queenly Principle #3 – RECEIVE REVELATION & HEALING
Scripture Focus: Healing Scripture – Psalm 147:3 (GNT) He heals the broken-hearted and bandages their wounds. Revelation Scripture – Ephesians 1: 17-18 (GNT) ….and ask the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, to give you the Spirit, who will make you wise and reveal God to you, so that you will know him. 18
If we remain at rest and seated in Christ we will position ourselves for optimal growth and healing. Hard seasons have the greatest potential for significant personal growth and development if we steward the season wisely and not waste our emotional and mental energy stuck in the pain. Queens ask God and themselves hard questions and wait to receive the revelation. Queens are self-aware and intentional to learn the lessons and receive revelations
Queenly Principle #4 – REIGN & RULE
Scripture Focus: Romans 5:17 – For if by one man’s offense death reigned by one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness shall REIGN in life by One, Jesus Christ.
The Queen who knows who she is and her POSITION. She reigns and rules in life, in dominion fully aware that she has the POWER to change her CONDITION. Catch that! If you know your Position, you can change your Condition. Stop looking at the Condition and remember your Position, Queens! We are here to Reign and RULE in life.
