“Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all, but is under guardians and stewards until the time appointed by the father.” Galatians 4:1-2
I was doing my morning devotional reading through Galatians this morning, and this verse jumped out and seized my attention. The Lord gave me a word to share this morning. How many of us are content to remain children in the Lord? Choosing to remain ignorant of the things of the Spirit and the word of God? How many of us prefer the old man who is a slave to this world, to the new man who is master of all in Christ Jesus? I know for me personally, that the power that is in me from Christ Jesus scares me. I have been afraid to be set apart for him. Seeing it as isolation, instead of the truth, as being made holy in Him. The Lord has been opening my eyes to this limiting belief, and he is setting me free from it. While I am so grateful for the appointed guardians, and stewards in my life, the Lord never intended for me to stay a child under them indefinitely. I have been sensing in the Spirit for a while now the Lord calling me out to operate in the power of the Holy Spirit, through which Christ gifted me with. I wish to encourage you all to go to the Lord to ask him, are you in this season of childhood, and are to remain under the protection of guardians, and stewards? Or is it time for you to step out under the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit to fulfill your God given destiny in Christ? Blessings to you my brothers, and sisters in Christ.
