Beautiful, Scott. Thanks, and I hope tomorrow is better.
I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end He will stand upon the earth. And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God; I myself will see Him with my own eyes -- I, and not another. How my heart yearns within me! Job19:25-27February 18, 2016 at 12:27 am #99828

oh, dear Boulder ~ I just read this devotion ~~ and may all of us drink in the Magnificence of our place in our Father’s Heart ~~ so awesome ~ ONLY GOD’s created humankind did He declare before the foundations of the world that we are: “SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF THE MOST HIGH GOD” . . how wonderfully and true ~ we are Spirit filled born again blood washed children of God sweetly invited to know God as “Abba” Father . . . . thank You Jesus Christ for Your Great Sacrifice!!
Eph 1:5 Predestinating us unto sonship through Jesus Christ
to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,
Gal 4:6 And because you are sons, God has sent forth the
Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, Abba, Father!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Words of Ministry ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The goal of God”s predestination is sonship. We were
predestinated to be sons of God even before we were created.
This is according to the good pleasure of His will, which is
His purpose. This reveals that God has a will in which is His
good pleasure. We have this sonship by God putting the Spirit
of His Son into us. At the time we believed in the Lord Jesus
and were regenerated, the Spirit of God came into us as the
Spirit of the Son of God.
This is the reason that after regeneration we can easily and
sweetly call, “Abba, Father.” Before we were regenerated, we
could say at most, “O, God, help me.” But after we were
saved, we spontaneously began to cry, with tender, intimate
feeling, “O, Abba, Father.” Without the Spirit, we cannot
cry, “Abba, Father,” so sweetly and intimately. But what a
pleasant, sweet, and comfortable feeling we have when we say
this! This is a strong proof that the Spirit of God is within
us. We have the Spirit of sonship.
