Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.”
When King Saul saw David take down Goliath with only a slingshot and stone, he stood there in disbelief. How could David fight like a warrior and where did he learn to speak so powerfully against a giant? Where did he get the heroic courage, the leadership, the training? In 1 Samuel 17, when Saul met with David, he asked, “Who is your father?” Saul was perplexed that David’s father could be an ordinary shepherd, not realizing that our greatness, the hero in us, doesn’t come from our natural father.
Here’s the key: You come through your father, but you come from Almighty God. He formed you in your mother’s womb and knows how to cause the gifts He put in you to come out, how to make you shine. Your time is coming. You’re going to accomplish dreams bigger than others imagine. People are going to wonder, “How could you get a college degree, start that business, or lead that company in sales?” What you’re going to accomplish is not going to match where you’ve come from.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that You are not just good, but You are my great Father. Thank You for every good gift that You put in me and for how You are going to cause me to shine. I believe that You are going to accomplish more through my life than I can imagine. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
