John 1:12 KJV
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:
If you have made Jesus Christ Lord of your life, you are now one of God’s very own children! You are a part of God’s very own family! You are an heir of God and a joint heir with Christ Jesus (Romans 8:17). God now deals with you as sons and daughters!
Parents, are your children your children when they are obedient and do right? I’m sure any parent would answer yes. Well, are your children still your children when they do wrong and need correction? Are they still your children when they make you want to pull your hair out? Unless you are not a good parent, you answered yes. So, regardless of what your children do, they are still your children. That never changes. Most would agree on this.
Now, let’s look at God and His children. Do you believe you are a better parent than father God? If not, then why do you believe that he loves you and you are His child when you do good, but you question your salvation every time you miss it? People that do this, whether they realize it or not, actually believe that they love their children more than God loves His!
Get it settled in your heart, that if you’ve made Jesus Lord of your life, you are a child of God! You may miss it and he may have to correct you, but that does not change the fact that you are one of His children. This may seem simple, but until you get this revelation, you can never have a healthy relationship with God because you have a very warped view of Him.
Get your view of God from His very own words (bible), not what you think or others have taught you!
Daily Confession: I am a child of God! I am a part of God’s family! He has set His love upon me and nothing can separate me from His love!
