POWER FOR SONSHIP 2

image

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION  

John 1:12

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:

KJV

Further Study Ps 82:1-8, Gal 4:1-7

Yesterday, 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 a person has this God given power doesn’t mean he or she will utilize it and in reality there are many born again persons who do not use this power so they do not walk 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(see Matt 10:30)…He cares for you.

The Holy Spirit is very important in this process, unless you are filled with the spirit, you cannot actualize your full potential as a son. We shall  explain more on this topic tomorrow.

As you grow in the spirit; you get to know God more and more because your walk with God is essentially spiritual. You grow in the spirit by feeding and exercising your spirit man: you feed on the word of God, breathe the spiritual air of God’s presence by constant ‘passive’ prayer (a constant link you have to heaven where you are always communicating with God e.g. in the bus, on the street, everywhere…), exercise your spirit’s muscles and build up yourself with active fervent prayers (see Jude: 20, James 5:16). As you pray/talk to God, He also talks to you; He talks to you through the Bible (He is talking to you right now through this Devotional).

Go into today knowing that because your father in heaven watches over every detail of your life, you should be careful to make sure your life is lived in a way that pleases  Him all the time. You have to go around with a God consciousness; a consciousness that God watches over you and that nothing can happen to you by accident.

Prayer: Thank you heavenly father for speaking your word of life to me. I pray you help me walk with a consciousness of your presence and never again with a sin consciousness. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
