“Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!” 1 John 3:1
“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:” John 1:12
““I will be a Father to you,
And you shall be My sons and daughters,
Says the Lord Almighty.”” 2 Corinthians 6:18
I was going through a pretty hard little season of my life when the Lord stopped me in my tracks and spoke this to my heart by His Holy Spirit who indwells His followers.
“YOU ARE MY DAUGHTER, MY CHILD, MY SERVANT, MINE FOREVER. MEDITATE ON THIS,” He said.
Friend, the Lord ONLY and ALWAYS speaks in line with the Bible. Anything we hear that does not line up with the Bible is NOT from Him. I knew immediately this was from the Lord because I have learned to recognize His voice and study the Bible daily so am able to discern what is from the Lord and what is not.
Those who turn from their sins and believe in Christ as Lord who died on the cross to pay our sin penalty and was raised from the dead, truly turning to God and His ways and enduring until the end (Mt. 24:13), are His forever. His children. His servants. FOREVER.
The Lord wanted me in the thick of my trial to meditate on the fact I am His forever. His daughter. His child. His servant. Forevermore.
If you have committed your life to the Lord Jesus Christ, you are His child and servant forevermore! Led to meditate on this? I most assuredly am!
What an astoundingly precious and beautiful promise we can meditate on even as we walk through the trials of this life!
