“Now that we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts. And his Spirit tells us that God is our Father. You are no longer slaves. You are God’s children, and you will be given what he has promised.” (Galatians 4: 6-7, Contemporary English Version)
You are free and you know it! Listen to your heart within. While it may seem at times convincing that material conditions and circumstances are binding you, limiting your life, there is Truth within you denying this and calling you forth to true freedom and joy.
We are not slaves to sense or to world’s beliefs about us or about what life should be. We are children of God. He is our Father and our Mother and we are destined for greatness, for a conscious awareness and expression of God’s own intention for us—peace, joy, being the very living proof of His kingdom here and now.
God is Truth and Love. His promise to us is not iffy or conditional. This promise truly is that we be what He caused to be. This genuine identity is not merely something to eventually become, to aspire to, to hope for. It is the reality of things, a promise that is a guarantee, the very present fact of who you are and how you are: free! God’s family are not slaves; they are not born into bondage and hardship and an endless struggle for liberty. God’s ideas—you and me—are His children, His own unlimited nature expressed; always have been, always will be, and are right now. That’s a promise!
