So after a long week in Vegas, I am back trying to grind out the word of God.

Being away from my normal routine always makes the time pass slowly. I am glad to be currently at my desk. Let’s dive in to today’s word.

Romans 8
15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba,[e] Father.” 16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.

We have been adopted into the family of God. We are no longer slaves to fear. We have a hope in Christ. We have peace in Christ.

We are no longer slaves to fear. We do not have to worry about anything. We pray, we ask for wisdom, and we make Godly decisions as it pertains to our life. What if we lose our job? The Lord will provide another. What about our health? The Lord will protect me to continue doing the work He has for me! What about raising my children? The Lord will give me wisdom and my children will be blessed by the Spirit. What about fighting with my wife? The Lord will create reconciliation.

A child of God has no place being a slave to fear. We must rely and trust in our Abba Father who has purpose and a plan for us, not to harm us, but to prosper us!
