Recently a dear friend of mine who happens to be a king and a bishop sent me an announcement about a supreme Council of Bishops. I was about to go off in my thinking in a negative direction about all the titles that were listed in this announcement, when the Spirit reminded me of the following passage from the book of Revelation:

“And round about the throne …. I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold. (Revelation 4:4)
The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, (Revelation 4:10)
Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. “(Revelation 4:11)

So, the Spirit asked me, “How could the elders cast their crowns, if they did not first have crowns to cast?”

This is what followed in my reflections:

In the course of our lives we are given crowns by people. Yesterday I was given beautiful crowns (wonderful comments) for my Facebook post on a broken cup.

This morning I was “casting the crowns” that were put on me, before the Lord because it was really an inspiration from him and He deserves the crowns.

So I guess if I would stay in spiritual shape, I must continually exercise by casting crowns before Him. If I’m given a crown, I’m always casting it before Him. So that one day when I’m in His ultimate presence I will know what to do.

Because I have continually practiced casting the crowns, that men have placed on my head, at His feet, then I will know that even the crown that He places on my head needs to be cast at His feet because it was of Him that we have righteousness and glory and honor.

All glory to His mighty name!

(Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. ) (2 Timothy 4:8)
