Sons and Daughters of God

I am writing this post just for you. Yep! You are that important. As a human being, you have been created with a blueprint not seen. God has fashioned you into a person who is so unique that nobody else on the earth would compare to you. In fact, if you looked throughout history, you wouldn’t be able to find a duplicate of who you are. That’s how important you are to God. Yet, you may not feel that way right now. Maybe you have been through the battle for a long time and don’t see any good thing ahead. Oh, let me show you how to get there. First you need to know you are in the midst of a huge spiritual battle.

Satan has a huge army

God has given each of us a choice to make. We can either chase after the Light of His kingdom in Heaven, or we can serve the darkness of Satan’s realm. It really is that simple. God determined to give us lives that are blessed and filled with hope and joy, but most people refuse to accept the gift. That gift is His Son Jesus Christ. As long as we make Jesus a religion, people will turn away because they don’t want to serve a religion. What’s so interesting to me is that Jesus is surely not a religion but a God who loved us so much, He came to the Earth to save us from ourselves.

But the battle is on and Satan is determined to keep as many for himself as possible. And know this, he has a huge army.

If you have never opened up that heart of yours and let Jesus come in, you don’t have any idea what you are missing. Everything in you might be screaming that this is wrong teaching or telling you to turn away. You really should resist the urge to do that. God loves you and has been with you through all of your trials and hard things. He hasn’t been playing with you, but leading you to His Light; His Son.

Once a person has said, “Jesus, I need You! Come into me and take control of my life…” that life is changed forever. Where they used to be in darkness with a hole in their soul, now the Light of Heaven is in them. For the person who has done this, they soon realize they are like a lamp fully charged walking among the darkness of sin on the earth but it can’t touch them any longer. it’s like walking with a really bright flashlight through a dark house. The darkness has to move away we walk forward. It has no choice.

Maybe you are a Christian today but don’t feel like one that is really walking out your destiny. Let me show you some truths which will help you get going in a new way.

One of the most important truths a Christian should have as they mature is how important they are to God. Yet, that isn’t what I see in the body of Christ. Most of the people I minister to are men and woman with little self-worth. If only they knew how they have been lied to.

Most sons and daughters of God are people who have been lied to

When we open our hearts to Jesus and invite Him in, we become a new creation. New! Please… read that again. You are a new creation. Oh, I want you to get this. You have been bought with a price; Jesus Christ crucified. You are so valuable… There isn’t enough wealth on the planet to cover the cost of Jesus dying for you. From Gods perspective, He allowed His Son to die for you. What price would God pay for you greater than that? There is no price to cover that act of love.

When I minister to others, God has taught me how to look at the impeccable spirit of the person instead of their flesh. What good can come from the flesh? Yet, that is all Satan wants us to look at. There is no profit in looking at the persons sin. Instead, I am always reminded how beautiful their spirit is.

What God has placed in your flesh at the time of your birth is so incredible in design. Think of the real you as being a spirit, a vapor. It just happens to have flesh hanging over it right now. Your spirit has the same shape as your flesh, but the flesh is temporary for now.

You are impeccable in design. Your spirit, the real you is never going to die or get sick. That’s reserved for your flesh. Even more, your flesh is never going to be saved. Your spirit is what gets saved by inviting in Jesus Christ.

Some day your spirit is going to leap out of your flesh

The moment you asked Jesus in and were saved before God, you became His property. As a believer in Christ, one who has the Light of Christ in him, that person also becomes part of Gods household. That person also has complete access to Heaven.

Even more spectacular is that God gives you angels and a host of witnesses who watch your life. Even praying for you. Many believers are taught to turn and run the moment angels are mentioned. Goodness… They are placed around us by God and are very instrumental in what we accomplish in this life. Do we worship them? Of course not. We worship The King God Almighty and His Son Jesus and Holy Spirit. But to turn off your brain when the word angel is mentioned is silly.

As a side note, I always release my angels to go do the word of the Lord I pray for every day. They are waiting to be released to do what they were called to do. Use them.

Psalm 103:20 (NKJV)
20 Bless the LORD, you His angels, Who excel in strength, who do His word, Heeding the voice of His word.

If the angels are heeding the voice of His word and we are His children, and more, we speak His word, realize His angels are performing what we speak when it is the will of God.

Let me give you a better perspective of this.

Galatians 4:1-2 (NKJV)
1 Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all,
2 but is under guardians and stewards until the time appointed by the father.

Think of it this way… You have become an heir to the richest person in the universe. Your inheritance awaits you for some day ahead. Please read this and take it in. I am trying to show you why you should be jumping up and down every day of your life. You should never be walking in gloom or depression. That is reserved for the sinner. You should be so excited about what God has and is doing in your life that nothing would hinder you.

You are royalty to God

1 John 3:1 (NKJV)
1 Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.

It would be my hope that you would memorize this verse. Speak it out daily over your life. “I am a child of God!” Even saying, “Oh, what manner of love the Father has bestowed on me!” Could you imagine what your days would be like if you did this?

Can I give you a hint about being a Christian which should really help you get your life going again? If you begin to speak out words over your life that declare who are, the devil will have to move on. The only catch is you will have to believe it. It is time we change our minds about who we are. We have been lied to long enough.

It’s time to stop listening to the lies

A son or daughter in God doesn’t concern themselves with what is happening on planet Earth. Yes, you still have to live your life among the sinners, but every battle you are facing is already in His hands. Whether it is your finances, your loved ones, your job, your housing situation, let God rule over every part of it. He is much better at taking care of His children then we are.

When you are done reading this, will you go find a mirror? Go stand in front of it and begin to apologize to your flesh for how you have mistreated it. Then begin to remind your flesh who you are in Christ. “I am a son / daughter of God’s” or “I no longer need to worry or fear about my life!”. If you will begin to do this every day, your life will be healed.

Maybe you haven’t given your life to Jesus yet. Could it be you are in a church but have never opened up the doors over your heart and asked Jesus in? You will know it if you have. That hole in your spirit will be gone. That place of longing will be a memory. Jesus fills every gap in our life.

If that’s you.. right now, will you say to Jesus, “Lord, I am a sinner! I have done so many things against you and Heaven. Please forgive me.” You need to mean it. He will know if you are asking with your head or heart. Then take your hands and open the doors over your heart. Really. Just grab the two doors and open them wide and ask Jesus to come in and save your life. He will do it. And you will know that it has happened. If you ask with your head, nothing will change. But when the heart truly yields to God, salvation takes place.

I truly hope this article helps you to become who you were designed to be in Christ. You are so worth it! Leave a comment below and let us know if you gave your life to Christ. We care about you more than you know.

With love for your life,
