5 Truths About Being The Daughter Of A King

I have to admit, lying is not on my list of qualities that I look for in a human being. Honesty, integrity, authenticity, kindness, loyalty would likely make my Top 5. But liar? That doesn’t even make the list!

We all lie to some degree.

Admit it, you lie. We’re all guilty of those little white lies in conversations, like when a girlfriend asks “does my butt look big in these jeans?” I mean, honestly, who would say, “Yes, your butt seriously looks HUGE in those jeans, girl!” The better answer is something like, “You have jeans that look better with that shirt,” or “Maybe you’ll feel more comfortable if you wear a longer sweater on our trip?”

Our entire world has a lying problem.

Our family, friends, coworkers and spouses lie too. And if you have kids at home, you can bet there’s a little liar under your roof!

The occasional stretch of truth is expected in our fallen world, but it’s such a let down when we find out that words from a loved one repeatedly can’t be trusted.

We all know someone who is not trust worthy.

I have a member of my life circle who often struggles telling the truth, pretty much about everything. It’s hard to trust words that come out of their mouth.

It hurts when you can’t trust the people closest to you.

Over the years they have built up a history of falsehood that’s so strong, even when they tell the truth, we look at them with distrust.

Sometimes the big liar in your life is YOU!

Yes, YOU! How often do you look in the mirror and tell yourself you are ugly, fat or stupid?

How many times over the years have you fixated on how much you hate your nose or another body part that just isn’t measuring up to your warped expectations?

Count the number of times you have told yourself that you are defined by the number on the scale or the size of your pants. Too many to count, right?

Those are all lies too. Lies the enemy wants you to focus on instead of embracing beautiful truths about who you are as the daughter of a King.

5 truths about who you are as the daughter of a King

  • You are worth dying for. (John 3:16)
  • You are chosen, holy and dearly loved. (Colossians 3:12)
  • You are redeemed. (Ephesians 1:7)
  • You can survive whatever lemons life throws at you. (Philippians 4:13)
  • You are free from condemnation. (Romans 8:1)

Stop banging up the girl in the mirror and speak God’s truth into your mind and heart!

You are wonderful and marvelous because you are a child of the King! Click To Tweet

What can we do to combat the lies?

Lies are a by-product of living in a fallen world. Lies are part of society, church, the work place and home. We can’t escape them.

So how do we fight back? We pray. We replace the lies with God’s truth. And we do our best to live with integrity as daughters of the King.

  1. This is absolutely beautiful and full of truth. The only way to counter the lies is to replace them with the Truth! Blessings and hugs! <3

    1. You are a treasure my sweet friend. Thank you for offering your wisdom to the world, my wise sage. Love you! 🙂

  2. You are so right, we sometimes lie the most to ourselves. I think if we really believed what God says about us and how much he really loves us, we would quit lying to ourselves.

    1. Yes! It’s so hard to stop lying to ourselves and such a hard thing to cling to His truths in those moments too. So thankful we can memorize His word to safeguard our hearts!

  3. Nicki, hi! There’s something very empowering and freeing in calling LIES exactly what they are … and then choosing to believe the truths about who God says we truly are.

    Good stuff, friend … I leave here encouraged.

  4. Yes I need to replace the lies I tell myself with the truth from God’s word.

  5. It’s always beautiful to hear those word’s “daughter of the King.” It’s such a powerful statement. I don’t think it can ever be said to much!! I most certainly thank you for sharing your heart and truths from the Lord!!

  6. I love that you made a board listing the attributes with their Scripture reference. A great printable!!

  7. Nicki, these are such encouraging truths, and it’s amazing how quickly our circumstances can make us believe otherwise. I love the reminder and challenge to look inward and identify where we are the one giving life to the lies in our own heart.

    1. It really is amazing how it’s easy to forget who we are in Christ Jesus. A battle we all face daily and it’s so nice to know we aren’t doing it alone. 🙂

  8. This is an absolutely beautiful post. I’ve always struggled with lying to myself. It’s just recently that I started to learn and believe God’s truth about me. It’s important to remember (at least for me) to continue to apply these truths daily because each day the enemy tries to attack us and tell us lies. It’s easy to slip back into that way of thinking if you aren’t careful. Thank you so much for sharing these wise words for all of us especially when I need a reminder!

    1. Yes, it is SO EASY to forget these truths. I am in that battle myself. Isn’t it nice to know that we are not alone in this struggle? I love that God allows us to encourage each other on our journeys. 🙂 xoxo

    We have to remember that God cannot lie. So when we are considerate of others feelings, I don’t think that is a lie. We should stop looking at we see and look at hearts like He does. And they are so easily broken, our words are powerful and if we speak for Him we should know what He says, we need to see ourselves as He does.

    1. Amen sister, I don’t know about you but I am so deeply thankful that what God says about us we can take to the bank! 🙂 xoxo
