Up until now in this 30-day journey into the Father’s heart, we’ve been focusing on who he really is as our Divine Daddy. Now we’re going to shift to who we are to him. What does it mean to be God’s children by adoption?
Discovering this can help you make the transition to seeing Father God as a Divine Daddy who chose to adopt you because you are so very, very important to him (instead of seeing him through the lens of your experiences with humans). You are more precious to Father God than you know. He is more actively reaching out to you than you realize.
I wish I could sit down with you face to face and lead you through an inner healing. However, it’s impossible to do it through a book that’s written for all kinds of different people with all kinds of different father-wounds. This book, when read in its entirety, is designed to be a process of inner healing that slowly unfolds within you like a blossoming flower. If you’ve not been doing the prescribed spiritual exercises, you’re cheating yourself of this opportunity; go back and start over to receive all that the Father longs to give to you.
In this day of the journey into the Father’s heart, we’re going to build your confidence in how good he is to you by helping you see yourself through his eyes.
“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 8:14-17 NIV)
Day 13 on the journey includes:
- Divine Courage
