Then you will be a beautiful crown in the hand of the Lord, a royal crown in the hand of your God. Isaiah 62:3 (GW)
Let's imagine with me for a short while. You made a glamorous appearance at the coronation of a new king. All the royal family members, country leaders, high priest and essential members of the house gathered to witness yet eagerly awaiting to celebrate with the new king. You could hear the loud applause and singing of the crowd outside the majestic castle.
Finally, the appointed time arrived — the crowning of the new king. He was summoned to kneel before the Prophet of the Land and to receive his destiny. Shortly after the prayer, oil poured over his head. The Prophet of the Land places you on the new king; indeed, he now has you on his head. Yes, you are the Crown.
The king didn't kneel before anyone but the Crown. Here I'm proposing that the Crown is the official symbol of highest authority upon God's appointment. It's a symbol to represent Him—righteousness and justice, virtuous, glorious and all-powerful. You are a beautiful crown in the hand of the Lord, a royal crown in the hand of your God.
You are being chosen as a crown in God's hand-carry enormous responsibility and accountability before God and the world, besides your nation and people. Yet this is a predestined position, a role assigned to bring forth God's Kingdom mandate. When the appointed time comes, deep within your soul would rise with a sense of godly fear, humble heart and mature character. God, the Father and your King appointed you for one reason that He believes in you. He knows you well enough, more than you know yourself. Thus, trust in Him that the Lord Almighty will use you and His grace flows through you. Let others call you a blessed child of God. Let their lips sing praise to your God and King.

Let us pray:
Dear God, I may not comprehend the big picture of being a crown. Yet I would gladly submit my will to Your lordship. May Your will be my hand. Teach me to be a good representative of You. Let my words be few; let my character be a testimonial of Your holiness, graciousness, mercy, wisdom and compassion. I pray for Your Holy Spirit to place a Kingdom tune into my heart and soul. That in times of pressure, I would sing and draw comfort within Your presence. In Jesus' name. Amen!
