Day 9

Walk in Intimacy

For you did not receive the spirit of slavery leading again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself bears witness to our spirit that we are God’s children.

– Romans 8:15-16 NET –

Fear of punishment for the penalty of sin enslaves and isolates, but perfect love – the love of Christ – drives out fear. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom (2 Corinthians 3:17)! The Holy Spirit has adopted you into God’s own family. Hear the voice of the Spirit within you confirming this amazing Truth. Welcome to His family – His household – His flock! Behold the intimacy and access we now have through Jesus to our heavenly Father – our Abba – our Daddy. See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God (1 John 3:1)! You are His. Like a child running to sit in his father’s lap, draw near with confidence and boldness to the throne of grace (Hebrews 4:16)

This is who you are.
