“But when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law. God sent him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children. And because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, “Abba, Father.” Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are his child, God has made you his heir.”
Galatians 4:4-7 NLT
We are son's and daughters of the most high God and the right to be called his children (our righteousness) will never end, no matter what we say or do. If you know how God sees you and know your position with him than your actions will naturally change.
Faith is simply trusting in God.
This trust flows out of us with ease when we walk in the truth of whose we are.
You expect your days to be good.
No matter how hard the season may be, if God is for us then who or what can be against us (Rom 8:31)? If you knew that God was your loving father and he wants you to have a wonderful life, wouldn't you naturally expect your days to be amazingly blessed (John 10:10 Amp)?
When you walk in this truth you treat others differently.
This is a big one. How we see the people in our lives changes as we get a revelation of God as our father and his love for us. I myself am finding that what people do or say about me is holding less and less importance to me. Also because each person is valued by God it means that I should too and that's not such a chore when you realize that you are just as valued.
This week I want you to meditate (mull over) on the fact that you (if you've received Christ as your personal lord and savior) are his precious child. It doesn't matter how troubled our day may be because we are loved by the King of Kings, the Most High God and he is bigger than anything we might face. If you do do this, I think you'll be amazed at the changes you'll begin to see in your life and actions
Have a blessed day,
