Some few weeks ago I was reading an article about royal families around the world. The kind of lifestyles these royals live is full of power, authority, wealth, influence and honor. You will hardly find a royal doing some stuff most people are used to. Just think and reflect about it! They are earthly royals but they don’t have what we have as believers (royalty in God’s kingdom).
To all ladies reading this post, in order to be a Beautiful Queen,it all starts from within you before it manifest on the outside.You have to learn how to talk,think and act like it,even though you are not walking in what you desire yet.Talking out what you want has the power to change everything,in Proverbs 18:21 boldly proclaims that the power of life and death is in the tongue. That means that the words we speak have the power to uplift, change and direct the course of our lives, our feelings and relationships. They also have the power to destroy, mute, hurt and stop us from the life we are intended to have. A situation may look bleak right now, but that doesn’t mean we have to dwell on it and keep on talking about it as it is. You can use the power of your words to direct the change you desire.
The way you talk reflects the content of your heart and it influences the transformation of your heart and mind.
As a King’s daughter, it is imperative you make your speech a priority to truly match your royal identity. God created the world by speaking words. Imagine the life you can create with your words, especially when they are in agreement with God’s Word…………..
This is how the Bible shows us to Think,Speak and live as Queens :-
1.Decree a thing
To decree something is to declare a word with certainty, confidence and boldness as a statement, not a question.In Job 22:28 God’s word clearly states:-You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways.Take an assessment of how you have been talking. Speak truth over yourself instead of lies. How are you talking about your dreams? Speak about them positively and things will start moving in the spirit realm.
2. Be encouraging.
.A Queen uses her words to edify, uplift and encourage people including herself. Her speech is always gracious, peppered with gratitude, joy and highlights. You can’t wish and hope to be in a position of leadership if you don’t speak like a leader. A leader doesn’t get distracted by setbacks, resistance or attacks by talking about them as they are. A Queen helps others see what God has in store for them, what God is doing in a situation and reminds them who they are. A Queen is also gracious to herself. Proverbs 15:1 A soft answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger
3. Be covering
One of the biggest ways I see a change in my heart, is when I refrain from talking about an offense someone inflicted. Let’s be real here!! i think it’s our nature to want other people to be on our side when we have been wronged, so we let other people know about it. But God calls us to a higher leveled response than succumbing to our nature. We have a new nature in Christ, but we have to choose to act in it, for it to become more and more our natural response. A Queen always acts in love and love is trusting, not fearful. Because a Queen trusts God, she is able to cover an offense by not talking about it. Truth be told in Proverbs 17:9 A gossip stirs up division and separates close friends. Sometimes this might be your goal, but it only hurts and stops you from being in union with God.
4. Be silent:
There are so many verses that advise us to be silent and to guard our heart with all diligence. The world teaches us that it’s okay to vent and that we should say what’s on our minds. As a matter of fact, people take to social media to vent to the masses. But it’s destructive, not biblical. As a Queen, you don’t get to just spew out whatever is on your mind, especially when it isn’t positive, constructive or productive. A Queen is wise and guards her mouth with all diligence especially when there isn’t anything good or Godly to say. Proverbs 29:11 says: “A fool gives full vent to his spirit, but a wise man quietly holds it back.”
5.Be genuine and sincere
The easiest way to speak out righteousness is to have a pure and righteous heart. I have found myself praying and contemplating how and what to say to someone in confrontation. One day I finally realized that I was focusing on the byproduct rather than the root. I needed to change the way I saw that person in my heart, I needed to see him/her with love. Once I changed my heart, the words flowed naturally from a place of truth and love. All it takes is prayer and asking God to show you how He sees someone. Colossians 4:6 . Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one. Ephesians 5:4 neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.
6. Be Pure
The lowest form of humor is being crude and perverse which is outright degrading. We are surrounded by so much crude talk every day that it can feel innocent to adapt that kind of language as well. But our King made us for more than that. Why talk about impurity, degrade yourself and others with sick humor when you can be the vessel who ushers purity? Ephesians 4:29 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.1 Peter 3:10 He who would love life And see good days, Let him refrain his tongue from evil, And his lips from speaking deceit.
7. Be Gentle
It’s important to have good timing and a right spirit in our words. Sometimes speaking the truth in love may come at a wrong time for someone else causing friction. If you are meant to confront someone, the Lord will guide you and give you peace on when to handle it. Until you get that peace, stay silent and wait on the Lord. Proverbs 13:3 He who guards his mouth preserves his life,But he who opens wide his lips shall have destruction
Take Note:- A woman who talks like a queen attracts people to her confidence, boldness, faith and kindness.God has deposited within you what it takes to be a QUEEN through your words and the way you speak.
Sis!You Are Special In God’s Eyes.
