There are just some days when in the battle between trying in your own strength and living in the realm of the Spirit you just feel you’re not doing too well.
There are just some days when you just may not feel worthy to be called God’s child. You can’t identify anything that warrants or qualifies you for this amazing position.
So once again … welcome Holy Spirit! Where would we be without Him?!
“Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live. For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to 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 v 12-17)
It has happened. Whether we feel it or not. The adoption scheme that through His mercy and grace brought you into His family and to be that child of God. Who did that? The Holy Spirit did and continues to remind you of this.
Today the Holy Spirit is speaking to you, prompting you, “Go on, call Him Father, call Him Abba.” This personal, intimate, familiar title is given only because of relationship with the Holy Spirit. Call Him Abba prayerfully, worshipfully and in surrender, no matter what is happening in your life. And see what happens!
