"For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus" (Gal 3:26)

There are certain ivy league universities or blue chip companies if you join them you have arrived! For example, students of Oxford or Harvard University; staff of Meta or Amazon company, walk about with a certain sense of pride for being part of the "le creme da la creme"- the best of the best!

Closer home it is not by any surprise why someone occasionally bumps into cars bearing stickers of famous schools. Long having left these schools the alumni share their connection with a badge of honour!

But do you see the same happening too with children of God! Humility aside; a child of God is a special citizen on this earth! For we have "been bought with the precious blood of Christ’s death"  (I Peter 1:19). A child of God has all "his sins forgiven and cleansed from all unrighteousness" (I John 1:9). He has a "the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of his return..."  (2 Tim 4:8).

When you have gathered in all this shouldn't you as a child of God walk with a certain spring in your walk too! Shouldn't you exhibit a certain joy and confidence which the world cannot comprehend! For after all as a child of God you know Christ has said, "I have given you authority over all the power of the enemy, and you can walk among snakes and scorpions and crush them. Nothing will injure you" (Luke 10:19).

So, today, if there is anyone who has the right to walk with a certain spring and share a certain joyful smile, no matter what, it is you the child of God!

Prayer today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, what a privilege to know I am a child of God created in your image with a great future, because of faith in Jesus, for which I am thankful, this I pray in Jesus’s name.

    “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God”- (Philippians 4:6).

    Perhaps you have heard of a certain old magical trade known as mind reading. According to this trade which has been around for millenniums and has its share of tricksters, mind readers are able to discern thought patterns of individuals before they even utter a word. There are places in the world where this, as expected, is a lucrative occupation, with practitioners, often crafty magicians, demanding hefty fees, just to tell thoughts of others.

    As Christians, of course, we have an all knowing God, who has said, “Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him”  ( Mathew 6:8). Further, our Lord has pointed out, “And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words” ( Mathew 6:7). As Christians when we come to God, we do so with full confidence, that He already knows our needs and will meet them according to his glorious riches in heaven.

    Of particular interest for us here is that while God perfectly knows our needs before we even dare utter a single word, still it is incumbent upon us to make our requests known to Him. A parent may have long noticed a child has a need for a new pair of shoes; but it is another dimension, when the child does come out and share aloud that his pair is worn out, hurting and is quite in need of a new one. The parent takes notice, especially when the matter is presented with such conviction and urgency. This is why Hannah cried out to God for a child ( 1 Samuel 1:9-18).

    In our relationship with God, as the Apostle Paul advises us, it is not just enough to assume and let matters be, that after all God knows all our needs, but we too bear a responsibility to make our requests known to Him. Once we are done with that, we let God do  His part, allowing “the peace of God, which transcends all understanding” ( Philippians 4:7) to flood us.
    So, today, do not hold back your needs from the Almighty God. He has paved the way to walk to Him through His son Jesus Christ, to present your case, bear out your heart’s desire, and let Him do His part!

    Prayer today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, today I rise to make my requests known to you, knowing you have heard me even before I utter a single word, assured that you will meet each and every one of my needs, according to your glorious riches in heaven!
