We’ve all heard the phrase a gazillion times, “You are a child of God.” Have we not? If not… the Bible tells us that we are children of God. GOD. The creator of every single thing. Of the universe, the trees that we need for life, the cells that make up our own bodies. We are His children.
I was reading through my various devotions this morning, and for the very first time, this phrase stopped me. It made my heart jump. I am a child of God. Say that to your heart and soul this day. I am a child of God. Let it really sink in. Let your mind wander in the love that knowledge provides.
The same power that raises people from the dead, that created the entirety of life, that casts out demons and forgives sin, is the very power that made each of us. The very power we have running through our souls. Perhaps this goes back to the relationship Jesus had with his Twelve. He taught them. He showed them. He gave them His power. They doubted… and they SAW IT ALL. If they doubted, how on earth can we have the faith to move mountains and change lives and heal? Maybe I just found my answer, because we are really and truly God’s kids. He loves us. He calls us all to be His Light on this earth, His hands and feet.
I know there are so many of us who have grown up with dads who didn’t really take the time to be a part of our lives, who were too busy pouring out their souls into their jobs instead of being an involved and loving dad, but that is ok. We have an eternal Father. He calls us by name. He calls us His children. He calls us. He chose us. He knows us. He made us. By the same power that made the stars, the sun, the ocean, the sand, the seeds that grow into what we need to survive on this earth.
I don’t think I will ever pass over the phrase, ” I am a child of God,” the same way ever again.
Till next time!
