Sons and Daughters

Read: Galatians 4, Psalm 4

Galatians 4:6 says, “Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, 'Abba, Father.' So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God has made you also an heir.”
At the Olympics, you'll notice lots of parents in the stands cheering their children on toward victory. The parents of those athletes are fully engaged physically and emotionally in the event. Many times it's more entertaining to watch the parents than the athletes. Those athletes have no greater fans than their parents.
Romans 8:14–17 says, “…those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by Him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children. Now 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

As our loving Father, God wants us to experience the joy of victory in our life. We are sons and daughters of God. Since we are sons and daughters, He desires for us to fully understand and embrace our position as His children. We must understand that He provides, He protects, and He knows what's best for our life. He wants us to walk in freedom, no longer bound by worry and fear. And He's given us His Spirit, living inside us, so that at any time we can call on our “daddy”.

We do not have a Father who is nervous about our performance or concerned about the outcome of our life. Our Father is not powerless. Not only is He watching, cheering us on, He has entered the game, through His Son Jesus Christ. And oh what a game–changer!

We are more than conquerors through Him who loves us.
