I Am God’s Child!

Birth Certificate

“For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!””
(Romans 8:15)

You cannot ask for a greater blessing than being adopted by the Lord of Creation.  Being a child brings great privilege.  Everyone knows there is more blessing if you are the child of a king than if you are the child of the homeless guy on the corner. How much more are we blessed being adopted by the Great God of the Bible?  We are talking about being the child of the Lord God of All, The Creator (Gen 1:26), Most High Sovereign over all (Daniel 4:24), The Master (Proverbs 18:10), The God Who Sees (Genesis 16:7), God Almighty (Genesis 17:1), our Helper (Psalm 33:20),  Provider (Genesis 22:1-19), Healer (Jeremiah 19:11),  Shepherd (Psalm 23), the Lord of the Hosts of Armies (Amos 4:13), The God Who Sanctifies (Leviticus 11:44), Our Banner (Exodus 17:8-16), Peace, And the God Who is There.

I feel like I just got the highest promotion of all.  I now have the joy of calling God, my Father.  I pray that you will not live below your privilege.

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
(1Jn 3:1)

Oh, how abundant is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you and worked for those who take refuge in you, in the sight of the children of mankind!
(Psa 31:19)

Life cannot be better for those who are in Christ (Ephesians 1 and 2).  He has blessed us with all spiritual blessing in Christ.
