And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
1 Samuel 16:1, 11-13
1 And the LORD said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons.
11 And Samuel said unto Jesse, Are here all thy children? And he said, There remaineth yet the youngest, and, behold, he keepeth the sheep. And Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and fetch him: for we will not sit down till he come hither.
12 And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he.
13 Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.
Prior to the anointing of David as king of Israel in 1 Samuel 16:11-13, he was ordinary like any other person. But after the anointing came on him, he received supernatural grace to accomplish great things for God. The choice of David was neither an accident nor a coincidence. In 1 Samuel 13:14, the Bible says this concerning him:
“….the LORD hath sought him a man after his own heart…”
This reveals that there was a solemn search that led God to David in the wilderness. Also, in 1 Samuel 16:7, God said:
“…for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.”
It is therefore clear that qualification for divine royalty strictly depends on the condition of a person’s heart towards God.
Divine royalty puts a fellow in the position of authority over all circumstances of life. At the command of a ‘divine royal’, sicknesses, poverty, failure and the demons behind them must bow. The authority, responsibilities and honour attached to divine royalty suggest that a heart focused on God is necessary to be eligible for such high honour and glory. The title “Divine Royalty” is therefore strictly reserved for born-again and sanctified children of God. To this end, Daniel 7:18 reveals that the saints of God shall take and possess the kingdom forever and ever.
“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:”
1 Peter 2:9
One thing is sure: a person can only manifest the status of divine royalty if and only if the anointing continues to rest upon him or her. We must note that there are things divine royals cannot do and certain types of relationships they cannot keep. 1 Corinthians 10:23 says,
“All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.”
As you begin to live according to the high standard of heaven in agreement with the Word of God, may the anointing for divine royalty fall upon you today in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
You are a divine royal and a member of God’s royal priesthood; ask for grace to live up to expectation today.
