No matter what your age, it's not too late for you to claim this position in God's heart. We are all His daughters! And as a daughter of the King, you are:

  • A joint heir with Jesus (Rom. 8:17)
  • A fellow citizen with the saints (Eph. 2:19)
  • The apple of your Father's eye (Deut. 32:10; Ps. 17:8)
  • Beloved of God (Col. 3:12)
  • Blessed (Deut. 28:1-13; Gal. 3:9)
  • Qualified to share in Jesus' inheritance (Col. 1:12).

Don't allow the enemy to continue to hold you back from all God has for you. Accept your identity and begin to walk in it!

Divine Destiny 

When you do, you will be on the path to fulfilling your destiny. Ephesians 1:4 says that every believer has a divine destiny determined by God from the foundations of the world, "that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love."

And in Ephesians 1:17-19, the apostle Paul identifies another aspect of your calling: "That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe." 

But God also has a specific calling that you and you alone can fulfill. Esther is a good example.

Orphaned as a young girl, she became the ward of her relative Mordecai and was chosen along with many other beautiful young women to go to the palace and prepare to be considered by King Ahasuerus as his next queen. During the selection process, Esther obtained the king's favor, and he "set the royal crown upon her head and made her queen" in place of the former female monarch, Vashti (Esth. 2:17).

After Esther's coronation, Mordecai discovered a plot by the man next in power to the king to destroy their people, the Jews, and he encouraged Esther to appeal to the king in an attempt to save them. "Who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?" he told her. Ultimately, Esther received the king's favor once again and was able to convince him to repeal the decree sentencing the Jews to death. She truly had been called by God and placed in the palace at just the right time for just that purpose.

The Bible contains many other examples of how God uses women. God called Sarah to have Isaac when her womb was barren, to prove once and for all to humanity that "with God nothing will be impossible" (Luke 1:37) and to fulfill His promise to Abraham that he would be the "father of many nations" (Gen. 17:5; see also 12:2).

God called Ruth, a Gentile, to leave her country following the death of her husband and accompany her mother-in-law, Naomi, to Naomi's homeland. Ruth's destiny was to marry Boaz, a wealthy man, and to be the mother of Obed, the great-great-grandfather of Jesus. God called Mary to submit her body, her life and her reputation to give birth to the Son of God, determining by her obedience the destiny of all mankind (Luke 1:31).

You, too, are an important person in the kingdom of God, and you were created for a purpose. This purpose will prevail in your life once you have surrendered yourself completely to His will (Prov. 19:21). When you are walking in it, your speech will bless those around you, your actions will strengthen your relationships, your prayers will move mountains, your character will influence others for Christ and you will bear much fruit as His disciple.
