"You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor."
Psalm 8:5

When life throws you a curve, you have to have the right perspective. A bad break, a disappointment, a divorce, or a sickness can’t stop you. Keep pressing on in faith, and holding on to hope. God didn’t crown you with favor, and give you a royal robe, so you could go around anchored to doubt, fear, and bitterness. Being hopeful is about your soul being anchored to the right thing. If you’re not anchored to hope, you’ll become anchored to something else. You can become anchored to discouragement and see everything with a tainted perspective.

Everything is sour. I know people who are anchored to bitterness. They’re so focused on who hurt them and what wasn’t fair that bitterness has poisoned their whole lives. You can become anchored to self-pity and go around with a chip on your shoulder, always thinking about how unfair life has been. Being anchored to any of those things is going to keep you from your destiny. It’s time to cut that anchor and come over into hope.

To be crowned is to receive a special award for an achievement, or special talent. In a Beauty Pageant ceremony, when a runner up receives a crown, she is honored, celebrated, and is declared a WINNER. 

We have been declared VICTORIOUS through the blood of Jesus on the Cross.

You and I have been crowned with glory and honor! You have received a reward, and a badge of honor. It’s available to you! Don’t take it for granted.


Father, thank You that You have put a crown of glory and honor on my head by Your grace. Thank You that my hope and faith can be firmly and securely anchored in You. Help me to keep my anchor down and to cut the rope to any anchor that is less than hope. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
