Privilege of sonship

Download Today's Audio☞
Ephesians 1:18 (KJV) The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints
Felicia accepted the Lord Jesus but did not know and appreciate the benefit and privilege of being a child of God. As far as she was concerned, every human being is a child of God, so she did not see anything special in the fact that she had received the power to become a child of God because of her faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:12).

She traveled for her friend's wedding in the company of some other friends and one of them was a believer who understood her privileges as a child of God. They were using GPS to locate the village where the wedding was to be held. As soon as they got to the village, it started raining very heavily, and they needed to be able to ask around to find their way to the exact venue in the village.

Gloria, who was a believer aware of her privileges and rights as a child of God, prayed to God as if she knew God was listening to her. She then wound down the car glass and spoke to the rain to cease. In less than two minutes, the very heavy rain ceased completely. It was nothing short of a miracle. It was too obvious that the reason that rain stopped was that Gloria prayed. Everyone in the car was surprised.

When Felicia asked Gloria how she could do that, Gloria responded by saying “it is because I am a child of God and I walk in my sonship”. From that day, Felicia started seeking to understand her privileges as a child of God.

One of the most important things about appropriating something that you have is knowing first of all that you have it and understanding its function. Many believers do not understand that becoming sons of God is the most powerful thing that can happen to them practically. They do not realize that the reason why the Lord Jesus could do many of the mighty things He did was because He was the Son of God. We have the privilege of also becoming sons of God after the likeness of Jesus Christ (our firstborn). Sons have inheritances. We have been called to inherit the kingdom of God.

Go into today remembering that because you are a child of God (if Jesus is now your Lord) and God hears you when you pray. Thank the Lord for the Love He has given unto us that we should be called the sons of God.

Prayer: Ask the Lord to help you understand and walk in the power of your sonship.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
