Descrizione

Abandoned. Left to die. Rescued. Redeemed...
Adoption. Betrayal. Unfailing love...

The King's Daughter: A Story of Redemption traces one of the most beautiful love stories of all time. This collection of short Bible studies searches out the life of the King's Daughter, a familiar figure of Psalm 45. Who is she really? Has she always been the most beautiful ornament in the King's throne room? Will she remain so? Will she turn her back on the One who loved her more than any other, or will she let Him be as a bundle of myrrh about her neck?

From a field to a palace, from disgrace to glory, from shame to restoration: her story reveals not only the magnitude of our redemption but also the chastening hand of a loving Father and the beauty of His everlasting covenant.

Introduction

HAVE YOU EVER HAD THAT uneasy sense about something you were about to do; that little flipping in the pit of your stomach that says, I know this is what I’m supposed to do, but... That was the way I felt when I started preparing this material for the annual ladies’ event at my local church.

Psalm 45:13 has long been a favorite of mine, but when it came time to teach about the King’s Daughter and who she really is, I was in for a big surprise. What I found didn’t exactly match up with what I had expected to find. I was a bit nervous about it at first because I knew with that verse and that topic, most people generally have a preconceived idea about what is to follow. But the further I got into it, the more excited I became about teaching it. In fact, I could hardly wait to teach it!

Two days after the event at our church, I boarded a plane bound for Kenya. While there, the Lord opened the door to hold ladies seminars in various villages—guess what we talked about! As I prepared for each class, the message grew deeper and deeper. By the time I returned to the States, I knew it was something I had to keep sharing. So, this little lesson has gone from a few scratches on a sheet of paper that I was almost afraid to share with anyone, to my own dear friends and sisters at my local church, to the smiling women in Kenya, and now to you.

So, if you don’t have your Bible, a pen, and maybe even a notebook, go grab them—you’ll need them. I hope you enjoy this book, but most of all I hope that it will draw you closer to the King.

Chapter 1 - The Throne Room and Its King

The king’s daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold.

For most Christian women, Psalm 45:13 serves as a constant reminder that our inner person is to be our most beautiful part. It is to be all glorious. But when I started preparing this material and read the passage over and over again, I realized the standard, frequently taught meaning of this verse does not fit the context. I was horrified. I mean, Come on! Everyone knows Psalm 45:13 means we are supposed to be beautiful on the inside because we are the King’s daughters. So how could I teach anything else? But truth and Scriptural accuracy are far more important than accepted, and even commonly taught, opinion. While the analogy is certainly there, the context of the verse is speaking of the King and His throne room.

The word translated within in this verse is used fourteen times in the Old Testament, and every single time it is referring to the interior of some place or structure, never to a person’s heart or inner life. Disappointed? Don’t be. The idea behind the word is that the King’s Daughter is situated, as a queen, on her throne, directly in front of the door so that she, in all her beauty, is the first thing you see as you enter the royal chamber. She is the finest ornament of the throne room; a beautiful, praise-worthy addition to the King’s place of judgment.[1] With that in mind, let us begin our look at this passage by turning our attention, first, to the throne room and its King.

Imagine the scene: A beautiful throne room decked in gold and ivory, woods of the finest nature, fabrics of the richest kind, scroll work, carvings. No matter how vivid your imagination, you cannot out-imagine the beauty and majesty of that room, for it is the seat of The King, the King of kings and Lord of lords.

There He sits, a king that is more beautiful (fairer) than the children of men, who speaks graciously; who wears His sword with true glory and honor. His success is not from tyranny and corruption. There is no need, or place, for such things in His Kingdom. He rides prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness. He is an exceptional warrior, a righteous king, who despises wickedness. God has anointed Him with the oil of gladness. His garments smell of myrrh and aloes and cassia. His presence is a place of joy.

We know this mighty king to be Jesus. We see glimpses of this psalm and the pictures that it draws of our Lord repeated, referenced and quoted over and over throughout Scripture. Here are just a few examples for three passages from Psalm 45:

1. Grace is poured into Thy lips – Psalm 45:2

And all bare Him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said, Is not this Joseph’s son? – Luke 4:22

The word translated as gracious
