Introduction: What is the “I Am the Daughter of a King” Bible Verse and Why Does it Matter?

If you read this and don’t feel your heart move, something is not working. A young woman, a Christian, at an atheist conference was moved to tears. I am not one for being moved, but this one made me cry the first time I read it… This is the only thing I’ve ever seen where an atheist and a Christian can agree on the power of scripture… You may have read other Bible verses, but you will never read anything like this one. It is a Bible verse that an atheist challenged Christians to live up to.
Why? Because we have a common enemy and every single one of us has a farm to prune, so that we can bear more fruit. -Damien
The story behind the “I Am the Daughter of a King Bible Verse”: “In 2007, I was speaking at an atheist conference in Texas. I had prayed before going on stage, asking God to help me be clear. I was about to speak about the evidence for Jesus when a man in his 70’s stood up and asked me a very simple question: “If there is so much evidence for God, why don’t more people believe?”

How to Live with High Value

But this is the one that says “You are valuable. You are loved. You are my daughter”. And it makes a difference in the way you live because you hear it again and again and again, at the best and worst times of your life. And when you hear it again and again and again, you start living it out.

You learn how to live with high value when you become the daughter of a king. It’s not something that stays in your head but is alive in your heart and shows up in your actions because you believe it to be true. You see yourself as valuable. You put your needs above other people’s expectations. You treat yourself with respect and kindness, even when others don’t. You protect yourself from people, places and things that are negative and destructive. You stand up for what you believe in when no one else will. And when you believe it to be true, you start living it out.

The Importance of High Status in Different Cultures

I have been challenged over the years about how I could understand the importance of such a verse in Christ’s life when people are struggling for food, for clothing, for the basic necessities of life. I am trying to understand how Christ could say, “You are valuable. You are loved. You are my daughter”. . . . We need to understand that God loves us as individuals. If I had been born into royalty, it would not have changed God’s desire to love me as an individual. When Jesus healed the woman with the issue of blood, he did not ask her about her heritage or her status. He said, “Daughter, be of good comfort; your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”
“You are valuable. You are loved. You are my daughter” is an instruction to a daughter to allow herself to be loved. It is an instruction, not only to the individual who experiences being valued as a princess, but also to the culture at large that provides her with her values, beliefs and expectations. It is an instruction of love and acceptance for all people of all cultures who desire to be accepted into God’s family and value as his children whose relationship with him should be based on mutual respect.

What Makes People Think Higher Status?

In the next few weeks I will go into more detail on the WHY of high value and why the “daughter of a king” Bible verse is important. For now, let me just say that when I was invited to speak at an atheist conference, I was inspired by this verse to talk about WHY religion matters, and in my case, it is because it puts high value on us. When you know that you are valuable, how could you not say it, so that others will hear it? When you know that your life matters, how could you not communicate that through your speech, actions, etc.?
Maybe this is the first time in your life you’ve thought about how you were raised and what that means for you. Maybe it’s the first time in your life you’ve been made to feel valuable. Or maybe your values are different than mine and for me I don’t need religion. But you do. I hope this will help you to see how important it is to put high value on yourself and that it doesn’t matter what you were taught as long as you are now thinking of your true worth.
“You will know the truth and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32
