Confidence of Sonship

by Carolyn Hope

So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.” For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children. And since we are his children, we are his heirs. (Romans 8:15-17)

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. (Romans 8:38)

There is no greater security than being a child with loving parents. When I was little, I used to pretend to fall asleep in the car so my Dad would carry me to my room when we got home. I loved the way it felt to be held in his strong arms. There, I knew I was safe and protected. In his arms, nothing could harm me. In his arms, nothing else mattered.

You have a perfect Father who loves you, protects you, and holds you. He adopted you into His family, and His arms are always open to you. Nothing can take you from His embrace. In His arms, nothing and no one can harm you. You can rest in the love of your Father. He’s for you. He’s with you and He loves you for all eternity.
