I'm A Child of God

But as many as received him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name:
John 1:12 KJV
Previously, we said that because you are born again, God has given you power to become His son. We also attempted to establish that the fact that a person has this God given power doesn’t mean he or she will use it and in reality there are many born again persons that do not use this power thereby not walking in their authority as  sons of God.
How do you use this Power?
First and foremost, you have to walk in the conviction and conscious knowledge that you are a child of God; that God is your father and that your father cares for you.
You have to live in the knowledge that God watches jealously over you and that even the hair on your head are numbered by your father in heaven…He cares for you.
One important fact that differentiates sons from slaves is that a true son knows His father. Anyone could know about his Father but a true son doesn’t just know about his father, he knows his father.
I want you to know that God wants you to know Him. He does not just want you to know about Him; His Power, His love, no. God almighty wants to have a personal relationship with you.
It is a process…
This happens as you grow in the spirit; as you get to know God more and more. As you pray/talk to Him, He also talks to you; He talks to you through the Bible (He is talking to you right now through this Devotional). He talks to you in your spirit.
Because your father in heaven watches over every detail of your life, you will then be careful to make sure every detail of your life is lived in a way that is pleasing to Him. You have to go around with a God consciousness; a consciousness that God watches and watches over you and nothing can happen to you by accident. You have to live your life with a consciousness to want to please this Father who loves you so much.
