RHEMA FOR LIVING OFM, DAILY DEVOTIONAL GUIDE FROM THE DESK OF GOD’S SERVANT REV (DR) LIZZY JOHNSON SULEMAN.
FRIDAY, 8TH MAY 2020.
BIBLE READING: PSALM 22:24.
TOPIC: WAKE UP! GROW UP!
TEXT: “Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all” Galatians 4:1.
You have an all encompassing inheritance in Christ, but are not entitled to all of it until you grow up. When you remain as a child, you are not different from a servant because a child cannot manage his affairs, a child needs people to reason and do things for him.
Just as no man commits his will into the hands of a child, for someone has to be in charge of it until the specified age of maturity by the father, so also, you are yet to possess all of your inheritance in Christ because you have not grown to the age of maturity to be fully in control. Though an heir, but limited, though an heir but irresponsible.
What brings you to maturity is knowledge. The Bible says, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32. Desire knowledge, search the Word of God, fill your being with it and grow into your inheritance. It is time for your manifestation as the sons of God. “For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.” Romans 8:19.
My Father, My Father, as I pray now, I receive fresh zeal for the knowledge of Your Word.
