“All who follow the leading of God’s Spirit are God’s own sons. Nor are you meant to relapse into the old slavish attitude of fear—you have been adopted into the very family circle of God and you can say with a full heart, ‘Father, my Father.’” (Romans 8: 14-15, JB Phillips New Testament)
Remember who you are. You are the child of God. You have a permanent position in this divine family, joined together naturally by this conscious acceptance of your heritage. We have agreed to the Truth of our birth. We have chosen to be true to ourselves as the very offspring of goodness, of light, of Spirit, and of Love.
This awareness of our relationship with the divine Source of All makes us fearless and free. We know that we have full admission into that family circle of God, where we absolutely belong. It is our true place and our real nature to be children of all that is right and good and limitless, and to express those qualities easily and with authority. We carry forth the name of Christ within us; we are the children of God’s Love.
So, don’t be tempted to even try to be who you are not. Don’t agree to fearfulness and doubt and self-criticism and resentment. Don’t ever for a moment think that you are alone or abandoned or without love. You are God’s own and you can’t change that. You can with a full heart turn to God and know Him to be your Father, your Mother, the One Who made you and Who tenderly and powerfully loves you always and right now.
