Childlike Dependence

| Vicky Bentley’s Blog

Romans 8:14-17: For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by Whom we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of God, 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 with Him.
It is the child’s privilege to be set free from fear, worry, care, doubt.
Every turn of life, the Holy Spirit is undertaking for us.
He is in us, guarding, growing, and guiding us on to glory.
A child is not to fear being disowned.
Blood lines cannot be changed or broken….
sadly in this life they are denied….
but the Spirit residing in you cannot deny Himself!
To enjoy His tender mercies, we must allow the whole of our lives to be governed by the Spirit of adoption within us.
Only then will we be free from the self imposed prison of legalism and all the fear it brings.
Today is the day for us to surrender absolute control to the Holy Spirit,
so that we can live in childlike dependence upon our Faithful Father.
