Daily Verse: Romans 8:1-15.
Key Verse: Romans 8:15: “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.”
When we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we are adopted as children of God replacing our previous status as slaves of sin. Unfortunately there are plenty of believers that are not aware of their new status, they see themselves as common man and not as sons and daughters of King of all kings. As a result, these people do not believe that there is assurance of abundance living that God has provided. Our Father in heaven truly cares and has the desire to be close to us. He wants us to be fully dependent on Him, entrusting our lives through His guidance. God longs to communicate with us daily. If any one of us does not have intimate father and son relationship with God, this is the time for us to return to Him. There is no greater love than the love of our Heavenly Father. If His love surrounds our lives, no matter how big the situation we are facing, we will stand firm, endure and never give up. Acknowledging that we are God’s beloved children, will enable us to overcome the devil’s intimidation to destroy us. Let’s live a life as sons and daughters of God’s kingdom by deploying the right which have been bestowed upon us.
God is rejoicing if His children depend on him fully.
I am rejoicing because I am not a common man, but a child of God’s kingdom.
Proverbs 24:21-22, “My son, fear the Lord and the king; Do not associate with those given to change; For their calamity will rise suddenly, and who knows the run those two can bring?
I will pray so God’s children will live a life in victory.
