With salvation comes a remarkable gift. You are a child of God. And nothing can change that fact.
Galatians 3:26-29 says, "You are all sons through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothes yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for your are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise."
In other words, no matter what your background is, you are an heir.
No matter how lonely you are on this earth, you belong to an eternal family.
No matter how underprivileged you are, hold on to the eternal privilege of being a daughter or son to the King.
And if you feel inferior, lift your head up because your place in God's family is sealed forever.
It doesn't matter how many promises have been broken in your life, this promise will never fail.
No matter what your life looks like here on earth, behold this truth: the promiseland is coming because you belong to Christ.
Behold. Nothing can take you out of the family of God.
This should bring us such comfort and confidence!
Yet, often we live putting such emphasis on the temporary. The eternal truth is that nothing can come between you and the Lord. Nothing can touch you if you are His. The struggles and issues we face here on earth are temporary. We are heirs according to the promise. There is a promiseland!
May this bring you peace and rest and joy! Lift up your eyes to your Maker and breathe it in: You are a child of God. You belong.
