THEME: GOD OUR FATHER
“For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.”
-Like a father who corrects his children seeking the best to come out of them, our Heavenly Father corrects the ones He loves and scourges every son whom He receives (Hebrews 12:6). If then we have received the chastening of our Father as His beloved children, let us not despise the chastening of the Lord and not be discouraged when we are rebuked by Him. King Saul was ordered by the Lord to go and attack Amalek and destroy everyone and everything that they have. Saul did as the Lord commanded but spared the king Agag and the best of their livestock to sacrifice them to God. But God rejected him saying that obedience is better that sacrifice, rebellion is a sin of witchcraft and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry (1 Samuel 15:1-23). Unlike king Saul, Jesus was obedient to God our Father unto death on the cross and accomplished His mission in the redemption of the world. Let us therefore not suppress the truth in wickedness but be diligent by seeking His will in righteousness through faith. God has made known to us His will throughout the scriptures, divine revelations and His Holy Spirit who dwells in us and not in buildings made by human hands. Let us then put away all forms of evil and maintain a clean conscience for which we have been called and will be justified through grace. God has given us His Spirit who lives in us and gives us life, and if we are led by the Spirit of God we are children of God as we cry Abba Father. By this then we are dead to sin and alive in righteousness through sonship, as the son does what He sees the Father do. If then we are children of the King, are kings and priests and are called to rule on the earth as we dwell in love. Further, that we have been given the gift of eternal life from God our Father and will inherit His heavenly kingdom, and live with Him forever.
Thank You Abba Father for this far that You brought us and for the gift of eternal life through Your beloved Son Jesus Christ. Only know our thoughts and hearts desires, answer all our prayers and hearts desires according to Your divine will. Your justice is pure and true in all the earth, judge us severely and correct us ruthlessly, so that we may serve You more perfectly. Fill us with Your wisdom and discernment, grace and truth, humility and forgiveness, faith and wise council, love and compassion, knowledge and understanding, favor and the fear of You that we may see Your face now and at the end of time. Justify us through our faith in You and may we benefit from the grace which we have to receive through Your beloved Son Jesus Christ. Help us to overcome the world with Your love Lord. Help us to bear much more fruit with the gifts that You have entrusted to us Your children. Help us to be committed to the purpose for which You have called us and run the race by which You have called us with diligence. Help us to finish our course in truth and in accordance all You have written in our books in heaven. May Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven dear Father. May the blessings of Abraham overtake us and our descendants according to Your divine purposes. Thank You for Your love which You have poured into our hearts through Your Holy Spirit. Thank You for You have justified us through Your Son Jesus Christ and have made us Your children and joint heirs with Him. Lead us Holy Spirit in all things and help us to seek You always and see You for who You are. Thank You for Your gift eternal life and for the Helper in our hearts Who will raise us up at the last day and we will rejoice with You forever and ever. Amen
