The Stunning Crown

Look what happens when the Holy Spirit comes inside of you.

Isaiah 62:3-4

The Message (MSG)

“You’ll be a stunning crown in the palm of God’s hand, 
   a jeweled gold cup held high in the hand of your God.
No more will anyone call you Rejected, 
   and your country will no more be called Ruined.
You’ll be called Hephzibah (My Delight), 
   and your land Beulah (Married),
Because God delights in you 
   and your land will be like a wedding celebration.
For as a young man marries his virgin bride, 
   so your builder marries you,
And as a bridegroom is happy in his bride, 
   so your God is happy with you.”

  • A crown is a symbol of power and authority. A crown is often coveted by someone who is in competition striving for winning the price. It is beautiful, shining  and full of great value. That is what this verse is saying about YOU. You… (Insert your name) will be a stunning crown in the palm of God’s hand.  That means he would hold his palm out and SEE you… How awesome… of a thought.  You will be like a jeweled gold  cup held high in a place of honor and delighted by God.
  • There will be no memories of the old life, of the rejections, deceptions, past hurts, etc…Your life will be rebuilt, even if it’s in ruins.
  • The name Hephzibah or Hafzbah expresses a very clear idea. Since the same root hafz means “guarding” or “taking care of,” all words from this root suggest the idea of “safeguarding,” and therefore the name Hephzibah means not only someone who evokes delight, but also “one who is guarded,” a “protected one.”
  • Beulah means “married.” When God changes a name in the Bible, it conveys transformation, a second chance, and a new beginning.
  • You will be always enjoying,no matter of the circumstances. Marriage is a life transformation event, one of the greatest memories people have. The bride has now a provider, protector and carer.

    This is so beautiful To receive the Holy Spirit is a beautiful thing. I love the comparison between a bridegroom and his virgin bride. When woman gets married it’s the best day of her life and she doesn’t forget it. And receiving the Holy Spirit is even much more wonderful than that day.
    Why wouldn’t you want to be a ‘stunning crown’ because that’s what you become when God is inside of you.

    How wonderful is for us to be in God’s hands! From the moment that we receive the Holly Spirit and God holds us in His hands, we become so precious, so priceless. Why worry with silly things? When we are in God’s palm He protects us with His fingers and He transforms us by polishing us. This is what happens when we give ourselves to God and trust in him and ask him ” Here I am, please pick me up- hold me!”. This is the moment that He gives us His Spirit…this is the moment when He reaches out His palm and hold us.Then we become stunning and beautiful crowns.

      Dear Joana,

      That’s exacly what the Holy Spirit does. He makes the desolate and ruined lives to be like a beautiful garden, a true delight.
      God Bless you.

    The comparison of a stunning crown says a lot. It is not just a crown. When someone wears a crown you do not need to be told they have authority the crown speaks loud enough that they are authority. And the more beautiful and stunning it is the more you say wow that is outstanding who are they and who do they represent. This goes to show that when we have the Holy Spirit we have to seek to be stunning crowns not just crowns. So when you have the Holy Spirit you do not need to tell people they will say why is this person so different and the fruits will speak louder as they are part of the stunning crown. I CHOOSE to continue seeking to be a stunning crown always as my best will never be good enough because He went all the way for me in obedience to His Father.
