Do you fully understand your power?
"For those who are led by the spirit of GOD are the children of GOD. The spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the spirit you recieved brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry "Abba, Father." The spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are GOD's children. Now then if we are children, then we are heirs---heirs of GOD and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory." - Romans 8:14-17
Lets go on record to say this is my first devotional! I am so excited guys, GOD is constantly whispering things into my spirit and as directed I will share. First off let me say welcome family; to my brothers and sisters in Christ already and brothers and sisters soon to believe. Have you ever encountered someone or yourself felt powerless? A feeling of lack, "who am I," " nothing will ever change," "I was born this way," "I wish I had what they had...." a spirit of defeat, deppression and sorrow? Well I am here to tell you all of the above are simply lies! The oppening scripture leads with "For those who are led by the spirit of GOD are the children of GOD." -Romans 8:14 Wrap your minds around that! It continues to verse 17 saying " Now then if we are children, then we are heirs--- heirs of GOD and co-heirs with Christ..."- Romans 8:17 GOD, the unfailing, never changing, immesurable, holy GOD who made everything that exists is our father!!!!! Hallelujah! GOD who " In the beginning... created the heavens and the earth."- Genesis 1:1 GOD who said "Let there be light ," and there was light"- Genesis 1:3 is our father!!! We are literally miniature versions of him, the holy spirit, and Jesus Christ as they are one. Once you believe that to be true, the world is literally yours! The world was made for us to rule it, as kings and queens do their kingdoms. We have so much power within us, it just has to be tapped into. Any dream you have, any circumstances you are faced with approach each boldy knowing that "in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us." - Romans 8:37 With that said GOD is sovereign and will do things when and how HE wants to... However he is NOT a liar. If he has given you a vision to see, seize it! Use all gifts he has given to you to prepare yourself and when the season comes reap!!! Try not to faint lol... The first step to living as an heir is understanding the hierarchy. A hierchy is: the system of which people or groups are ranked one above the other according to status or authority. Keyword AUTHORITY. Imagine If as a child in your fathers house in the natural you have dinner guests come over who you don't know. Would you expect them to come into your home and rule it as if it were theirs? All in the fridge, yelling at your brothers to go to bed, lol sounds crazy right? Would even a fish tell a fisherman get on my hook? No, because there is a hierchy set in place. You are set above angels, all the animals in the world, all the forces of darkness etc because your father is THAT DUDE!!! Look at life as a big faith/charachter building workshop, or even a gym where anything "in your way" is there to strengthen you so that you can be in the best mental and physical shape possible to glorify GOD! I put "in your way" in parentheses because the bible says "And we know that all things work together for the good of them that love GOD, AND who have been called according to his purpose.!"-Romans 8:28 simply put, if you love your father GOD all things are working together for YOUR GOOD. We only see puzzle pieces in life, and sometimes come from broken or dysfunctional families in the natural... Even this is a part of GOD's plan. He knew you before you were born because he created you as spirit and sent you for such a time and a place. Put your faith to work and TRUST him! Use your authority!!! The best way to understand your power and how to use it is to get interested in knowing your father and his word. AKA read your bible! Even if you don't understand everything yet. As children we will never understand everything, but we will get familiar with the customs and ways of our dad who has all authority and we will learn how to emulate him. I personally don't just want to look like him... nah, I want to walk like him, talk like him, love like him be a light for him and actually use my power! I am POWERFUL! YOU ARE POWERFUL! Get into it!
Prayer: I am a child of GOD! A memeber of his body, destined for greatness. I can do all things through my father Christ who strengthens and edifies me. There is a plan for my life and I have POWER given to me by GOD! I am an heir! I have rule over all things and circumstances that my father has placed under my command. He will never fail me and I will glorify and trust in him! Amen.
