You know that having received and accepted Jesus Christ, “…you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are His child, God has made you His heir.” – Galatians 4:7
As in, you are a child of God.
Go ahead and say that to yourself as many times as you want. Put it on repeat.
I am a child of God.
God’s my father, my heavenly father.
I mean, this great God. This awesome God. The Almighty. This unfailing God. This gracious, loving, merciful God. This miracle worker. This God with whom nothing is impossible, who nothing is too hard for, who can do all things and no purpose of His can be thwarted. You are His child.
Just soak in that for a second.
When was the last time you really thought about this truth?
And oh the perks!
“Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.” – God (Isaiah 49:15)
Will He forsake you?
Will He fail you?
Will He not help you?
Does He not have great plans for you?
Doesn’t He know what you need (as in need), won’t He provide according to His riches?
Won’t He guide you?
Won’t He shield you?
Oh, doesn’t He just love you?
Did you see the part where He says He has made you His heir?
“And since we are His children, we are His heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory. But if we are to share His glory, we must also share His suffering. Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory He will reveal to us later.” – Romans 8: 17-18
Child of God, soak in this truth this weekend and always for some encouragement.
