Romans 8:16 “The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.”
This morning as I was driving in to work, I felt God wanted me to encourage us all to keep wrestling with this truth until it sinks deep into our hearts. We are children of God!
I know for those that have been in church a long time this is not a new concept but we can’t just let it be an idea. It has to be revelation in our hearts. When we understand the full extent of what it means to be a Child of God. We begin to live out of that revelation. We begin to see things not just from our natural perspective but with the perspective of our heavenly Father. We begin to recognise how our God given passions and gifts could be used for the purposes of God. We also begin to see things with eternity in mind.
So my challenge to us all is to keep striving to understand what it fully means to be a Son and Daughter of the most high God. Keep wrestling with it until it becomes a certainty in your heart. Once there you’ll start to see “Abba Father” in a whole new light.
