As we celebrate Father’s Day this Sunday, take some time to reflect on your relationship with your Heavenly Father. Regardless of what your experience has been with your earthly father, God has been and always will be your loving Heavenly Father.
Listen to Galatians 4:6-7. “Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, ‘Abba, Father.’ So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God has made you also an heir.”
Beloved one, be established in your true identity as a son or daughter of your Father with His blessings as His heir. He unveils and reveals to you who you are and affirms to you how He sees you in Christ, your hope of glory. Deep inside, your heavenly Father calls forth your real essence as His beloved son or daughter.
Be blessed with a deep and abiding nature marked by freedom, nobility of birth and character, confident identity, honor, dignity, legal authority, purpose, true personhood, access to your Father, deep intimacy with Him and within His house, and family likeness. In your Father you have His assurance that you are an heir to the rich trust fund laid up for you in His heart.
Paul prayed for his spiritual children in Ephesians 1:17-19. “I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know Him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and His incomparably great power for us who believe.” Be blessed to receive the Spirit of wisdom and revelation.
Be blessed in the name of your glorious Father
who opens the eyes of your heart to know His glorious inheritance in you.
