Scripture: 1 John 3:19-21
1 John 3:19-21 says, “And by this we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure (persuade) our hearts before Him. For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God.” There it is. To move forward in the eternal purpose it is essential that we have confidence before God by faith through Christ to demonstrate to principalities that they don’t rule. How do we get the confidence? That is what coming into harmony and union with our Sonship Gifts will do! Paul through the revelation of the Holy Spirit penned powerful truths which when pursued and grasped will have life-changing impact. These truths came through waiting on God and developing intimacy with Him. For us it will involve more than merely studying the Sonship Gifts. It will involve connecting with truth in our spirit. It calls for commitment! That is what God did for Paul and He is no respecter of persons. He will do it for us! We’re on the right track. This is serious and it is connected to our eternal fruit. Our adoption may well be the key to understanding and receiving our position as sons and daughters of the Most High God. Adoption is becoming a focal point of what is going on with the Sonship Gifts. This may well be the transformational issue! I sense that the great power of these gifts has been missed by much of the church. God often hides truth in plain sight in order for us to discover it by seeking Him and by the power of the Holy Spirit. Jeremiah 29:13 says, “And you will seek me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.” Our progress in this journey may very well depend on our diligence and determination! We are in the process of doing that right now. Are we wholeheartedly contending for God’s best?
