The Crown Of Glory And Honor

Reading from the Book of Psalm 8:4-6

 4What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
 5For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
 6Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet.

Even though the Bible says we have been crowned with God's favor and excellence, often we do not act as though we are.  One reason we do not tap into God's blessings is that we do not believe we deserve them.  Another reason is that we have not been taught that the blessings of God can be ours and consequently have not activated our faith in this area.  So, we wander thorough life, taking whatever the devil throws at us without ever resisting him and claiming what is rightfully ours.

You have been singled out by God, Who has placed His crown of glory and honor, or favor and excellence, upon your head.  You may not see your crown, but it is there.  Just like the robe of rightousness in which you are dressed.  You may not see with your physical eyes your robe of rightousness or the crown of God's favor, but they exist in the spiritual realm. We need to remember that the natural man cannot percieve the things of God because they are spiritually discerned.

All things have been placed under our feet by God, Who has given us dominion over all His creation.  Those words do not indicate that we are suppossed to allow our problems or the devil and his demons to intimidate, dominate, and oppress us. If we will recieve by faith the blessing of glory and honor with which the Lord our God has crowned us, not only will our faces shine forth with the glory of the Lord, but we will enjoy respect, esteem, favor, and a good reputation.

Father God, I will praise You with all my heart, and I will tell people about the wonderful things You have done for me. I will rejoice in You and be in high spirits. I will wear the crown of glory and honor, that You have placed on my head, in high esteem! Thank You, Father.
