You will be a glorious crown in the LORD’s hand, and a royal diadem in the palm of your God. You will no longer be called Deserted, and your land will not be Desolate; instead, you will be called My Delight is in Her, and your land will be married.
Have you ever felt rejected, used, and deserted by the world? Have you ever felt abandoned and despised? As a widow, I dare say most of us have at some point. The world will use you for its own purpose and then disregard you because that is how the Devil operates, and he is the ruler of the earthly realm. Such a fate is exactly what Jerusalem experienced when she was taken captive, but God eventually restored her because she was – and still is – His.
You are His, too. In fact, our identity in Christ stems from the fact that we belong to Him. Because we are His, He will claim us for His own, where we will be displayed as a glorious crown and a royal diadem. While the world may have rejected you, God will exalt you, and His favor will shine upon you. Like a trophy wife, you will sparkle and shine in His hand!
We must remember, however, that such exalting is God’s work to do. Our works will never bring us the approval we so desperately need. We already have God’s approval, and He will display it in due time. He will restore all the broken and ruined places in us and make us valuable in His hand. The key is just remaining in His hand and allowing Him to do the work.
You are not rejected; you are loved and accepted by God the Father. You are not desolate or alone; you are in relationship with Jesus Christ, who lives today in resurrection power. You are not unwanted and despised; you are married to the King of Kings. Your worth is found as His possession. You are His, and He will eventually display your value for the world to see.
Have a blessed day!
