You are a Princess / Prince!

Today we are talking about Crowns and Glory.

Psalms 8:5 is one of the most commonly quoted scriptures. I am always truly unsettled by this scripture, there seems to be so much ambiguity surrounding it meaning. Maybe that is to keep us searching deeper into God's meaning and not leaning on our own understanding.

"Yet You have made him a little lower than God, And You crown him with glory and majesty!" (NAS)
When we go back and break down the Hebrew meanings of the highlighted words, it is my understanding that what this is possibly saying is this - Elohim, God divinely created us out of Himself to be less than complete apart from Him. Yet he surrounds us, looks upon us.. to help us.. with glory( honor, abundance, riches, dignity, reputation, reverence) and majesty (the price paid or received for a person or thing bought or sold, honor whichh belongs or is shown to due to rank of office which he holds)

This is what He did for Christ, this is what He offers to us. We simply have to understand that when we separate ourselves from our "crown of His help" we are choosing to be crowned by another Kingdom.

I pray that we all accept his "Headship" and allow His Crown to Grace our Heads...even if just for Today! Let us worry about tomorrow, when tomorrow comes.

With Love in Christ,
