Dear Child of God,
“For through the Spirit we eagerly await by faith the righteousness for which we hope.”
Galatians 5:5 NIV
“And we believers also groan, even though we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, for we long for our bodies to be released from sin and suffering. We, too, wait with eager hope for the day when God will give us our full rights as his adopted children, including the new bodies he has promised us. We were given this hope when we were saved. (If we already have something, we don’t need to hope for it.”
Romans 8:23-24 NLT
How many times do you think the Lord looks at us and says, “Don’t you know who you are?” Next time you doubt yourself or you are feeling discouraged, remember who you are. Remember your true identity. Remember where your eternal citizenship lies. Reflect on how your Heavenly Father refers to you; daughter, son, child, friend, love, disciple, servant of the of the Most High. This is your identity. Nothing less. Remember who are. We do not have to wait to be seen this way in the eyes of Lord. We do not have wait to be carriers of the Spirit. We are already are all of those things. We are already citizens of Heaven. The earth is just a stop on our way to our eternal home.
Enjoy the blessings of the Lord this weekend and reflect on each of these truths, friend!
1 Timothy 4:12
