I have decided to write today on the Platinum Jubilee celebrations of Queen Elizabeth 11’, 70 years on the throne of England. From today the 2nd of June,2022, England celebrates 4 days of honouring and celebrating this achievement.

The Queen ascended the Throne of England on the 6th of February 1952. Her full title is Elizabeth 11, by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom, Canada, and her other realms and territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith.

I think it is an excellent exemplary portrayal of female strength, leadership, and influence. She is 96 years old. And unfortunately, just over a year ago she became a widow.

The number 70 represents completion, wholeness, and the real thing. Seventy has a sacred meaning in scripture that is made up of the factors of two perfect numbers, 7 represents perfection and ten represents completeness and God’s law. Symbolizing perfect spiritual order carried out with all power.

 There is also a correlation between majesty and Jesus Christ. The Bible’s idea of majesty in relation to the messiah is to do with a combination of privilege with responsibility. The bible’s idea of kingship has nothing to do with celebrity but rather complete service and servitude.

The Queen emulates service and duty as she had to resume her duties as Queen at the death of king George vi at the young age of 25.

It has not been an easy reign in any stretch of the imagination. She has reigned during varying tumultuous political, economic, and social world climates. Plus reigned over the various family challenges that each season and generation change have brought to her family.

In the context of being a widow and greatness/grief there is a correlation, in that life and duty must be responded to as we cannot choose our birth position, responsibilities or what challenges are going to be thrown at us.

One thing in destiny is that there is a special dignity in being honoured and elected to sacrifice all to carry out a bestowed role.

There are many things this period of our Queen’s celebration of the 70 years jubilee indicates

  1. How we respond to responsibility and calling is crucial
  2. Resilience and focus are driving forces for success
  3. 100% commitment in duty and faithfulness always prevails

So, are you the lady being challenged by loss, remember the key to your overcoming is based purely on a healthy and positive Mindset, which impacts greatly your perception of current circumstances?

To conclude those of you who are in Christ own the royal identity of Christ, with all its abundant blessings. However, the conditions that come with this are like the Queen’s royal obligations – faithfulness, complete commitment, and obedience. This posture enables you to stand completely in the storms of life. Plus, to complete the race and gain a reward.

Stay well and remember there is always hope after loss.     

Grief continues to evolve! So be encouraged today! Get the help you need as soon as possible.
