79. You are God's son

As I was reading through the New Testament, one thing stood out for me more than most other statements, and that is that we are God's sons. This is a profound statement and one that has the ability to change your life, once you truly understand what this means. Come and allow me to show you a couple of Scriptures:

"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." Romans 8:14, 15

"For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus." Galatians 3:26

"I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the Lord Almighty." 2 Corinthians 6:18

You are God's son. Sit still for a moment and say that aloud to yourself. You are God's son, His heir, created in His image. Do you realise the privilege that you have? Do you realise the infinite wisdom and power that you have available? Sit back and truly realise who you are. You are not just somebody roaming this earth, no, in fact you are royalty walking with God's authority as His son. You are like the son of the richest man on earth, a multi billionaire. People jump and almost stand to attention when you come past. They listen when you speak and they respect you for your standing in society. In the same way you have the authority as God's son to change this world.

Plus remember always that God wants the best for you. Think of a good father here on earth. A good father wants his children to excel, a good father wants his children to be healthy, to be happy, to make the most of their life. A good father will discipline where necessary and will withhold certain things until the child is ripe and ready to receive it. A good father is always there and will protect his child. He will never allow someone to hurt his child unnecessarily. And the same is true of our Father in Heaven. He wants the best for you, He wants you to excel, He wants you to be healthy, to be happy and to be the best 'you' you can be. He will discipline you into growing into His likeness, because He wants you to be a perfect representation of Him. And once you are, the sky is the limit. You can become like your Father. Romans 8:29 tells us that God predestined us to be conformed into the image of His Son. And Jesus was just like His Father. He represented Him in every way. And today this is your chance. God's master plan was that He left His Son's body here on earth to continue with His work. Jesus in effect never left the earth, because He sent His Spirit to live on the inside of us, so that we can be His body.

Stand up in who you are and go and make a difference in this world. Your body might still be part of this world, but your born again spirit is not from this world anymore, but part of God's Kingdom. Therefore go out and bring God's Kingdom into this world and make a difference right there where you are. You are destined for greatness, far above what you can imagine.

Thank you Father that You are a good Father. You want the best for us and You know the best. Thank you that we can be Your sons here on earth. Help us to walk in the fullness of who we are and to exalt You in the process. Thank you Jesus that you opened the way for us, we are eternally grateful. Amen
