“Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.” Romans 8:17, NIV
Today I was complaining to Adonai about certain situations which appear unjust to me. I was telling Him how I would like for Him to intervene and do something about it. After finishing reciting my long list of unjust things, I expected to feel better but Adonai brought to my mind the verse above and He also reminded me of the story of Cinderella, to remind me of who I am (I know it sounds ridiculous, but bear with me!)
Many times I am exactly the same. I forget that my Father is The Master of all the seen and the unseen. I forget that my Father gave me a new name and I was not born to lay humbly in the ashes. I forget that I do not have to obey the lies and demands of the impostor who thinks himself master. I forget that any minute I can exercise my right as an heiress. I take circumstances and things as they come and forget to ask myself if they are my duty as a daughter or if they are only things demanded of me by those who see nothing but a servant in me. I am waiting for “fairy godmothers” to come and transform me into a princess and I act as if I have never been to the King’s Court. I have moments of brilliance when I pretend that this time I believe that I belong to the King’s Court, but my “spell” does not last too long and I wake up back in the ashes. I stay where the enemy sits me, and I remain there forgetting that his place is under my feet. Some things don’t change for the better not because Adonai refuses to fix the situations, but because I forget to exercise my right as an heiress. As oppose to Cinderella though my Father is alive and His kindness does not allow me to act as a servant for too long. He gives me moments when I become lucid, come to my senses and start acting as The King’s daughter that I am. Thank You, Adonai!
