We are sons of God – Devotional prayer for Lent #day 20. We have been made God’s child, and we are to act like one, not as if we do not have a mighty Father ready to fight for us.
Prayer for Today
“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” (Matthew 6:24)
Most Christians do not know their power and where it comes from. The day you decided to follow Christ, you became a child of God. Jesus said we are not called servants anymore. The time of being a servant is gone, and the transformation has occurred through Christ Jesus.
John 15:15 “ I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.”

To be a servant means to be enslaved, which is not what God wants for us. In another place in the scriptures, we were opened to the word of God that we have been made children. 1 John 3:2 “Now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.”
Now that we are sons, why should we be beaten down by everyday life situations when we have someone who can help us solve all these problems without leaving anyone behind.
When you pray, why do you pray like you are begging or like you know your prayer will not be answered? You are children of God, and you should talk to Him like our Father; he will respond to us as a Father. He doesn’t disappoint. We must let people know that we have a great God who loves us.
If we show this to the world, they will want to serve our God and have the feeling of God being a Father.

Lord, I accept you are my Father. I want to thank you for calling your child not a servant. Lord, you have made me have access to you. I know you are powerful to take care of my needs as my Father. I rely on you, Lord, to provide for all my needs. Lord, let people see that you love me. Amen.
