You Are Sons And Daughters Of The Father In Heaven
Here is your Daily Devotional Prayer for October 13, 2016 brought to you by The Plough
“Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.” So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.”
Dear Father in heaven, we come before you as your children, longing to be assured through your Spirit that we are and may remain your children. We long to live to the glory of your name under the shelter and guidance of the Lord Jesus in expectation of the great day which shall fulfill all promises made to us. Strengthen us, especially in dark and troubled days. Help us when danger threatens and when evil tries to make headway among us. Deliver us from all evil, for yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Daily Commentary: Until Jesus Christ came to redeem our souls, we were under the bondage of sin. But God the Father, in His infinite love, made us through faith one with the Son. We didn’t deserve this but His Spirit ensures us a share of the resurrection and a place within the family of believers.
His love is a gift of grace received by faith. Which now means we now enjoy the privilege of son-ship. Through a Divine act of the Father. He has taken up His residence in our hearts and gained possession of our wholeness. We are given peace and joy and a spirit of fellowship that only a family could know.
It creates a reverence and obedience in God becoming our Father, Jesus is made our elder Brother and The Holy Spirit becomes our teacher and advocate. What more could we want from being adopted by the Father in Heaven?
