THEME: CHILDREN OF GOD
“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.”
-To really know if we are a child of God is by being led by the Spirit of God. Once we have received Christ in our hearts through salvation, the Holy Spirit dwells in our spirits and witnesses with us that we are children of God. The Holy Spirit leads us in many ways and especially through the scriptures, dreams and visions, divine assistance and through many other manifestations. God also tells us that He disciples the ones He loves and chastens everyone he accepts as His son. We should then endure hardship as discipline for God is treating us as His children. “For what children are not disciplined by their father? If you are not disciplined and everyone undergoes discipline then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all” (Hebrews 12:6-8). Sometimes discipline come at a cost. A cost that teaches us to be bold in God’s training and chastisement in our walk of faith. By making the sacrifice to carry our crosses and follow Jesus without looking back, persecution may come. If then we suffer through this things with Christ, we will receive glorification with Him. Further, if indeed we are children of God; then we are heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ. Through faith in Christ then, we know that we will inherit His eternal Kingdom.
Abba Father thank for choosing us. We love You with all our hearts, minds, souls and strength, thank You for loving us first. We submit our hearts to You Holy Spirit lead us according to Your divine purposes. Without You we lack favor and cannot accomplish anything, shepherd us in all our going out and coming in. May You increase in us as we decrease Holy Spirit; all our hope is in You. Lead us in our various purposes as You have ordained us from everlasting to everlasting as we hope to receive our inheritance as per Your perfect timing. Take control of our lives Abba Father and fill us with Your wise counsel. All creation praises You Lord. All creation gives You praise. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit. Be with us now and forevermore. Amen
