It is a privilege to be a child of God, the desire of God is that every man He created should be His children but the right to become a child is only given to those who accept the love of God.
It is a pity that many children of God suffers like a fatherless children, because they don’t know their right, in Hosea 4:6 God said “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. God really want His people to live an enviable life on earth, but it can never be possible except His people know their right in Him.
According to Hosea 4:6, the lack of knowledge is responsible for the destruction of God’s people, therefore as a child of God, if you don’t want to suffer like a fatherless children, you must embrace the knowledge of God. Another thing you need to know is that, before you can know your right in God, you must know His will.
Most of the time, when we talk about the will of God, people used to narrow it down to the area of marriage and some other aspect of life, brethren it goes beyond that. God want to be communicating with His children concerning His will everyday but the problem of man is the lack of knowledge, God is a spirit John 4:24, you can only connect or relate with God through your spirit, but some children of God are not being sensitive to receive from God as it ought to be. In Job 33:14 For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. Any man that is not spiritually connected to God cannot receive from Him.
Before you can receive from God, you need to be open to the spirit of God, Ezekiel 2:2 ………And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me”, another thing you need to do aside from being open up to the spirit, is to know the Word of God, this can be done by reading the Bible, feeding from the word every day to hear from Him, for edification and to build your spirit. You also need good teachings from anointed ministers of God and be conversant with fasting and prayers.
Here, it must be emphasized that prayer is a means for children of God to claim their right from Him but if you pray amiss God will not answers your prayer, James 4:3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. God will never answer your prayers just because you prayed and you are His child, He will only answer you if your prayer is in accordance with His will for your life, therefore you must allow the Spirit of God to help you to pray in accordance with God’s will whenever you want to pray, and do not doubt God so that your prayers will not be hindered James 1:6.
According to Jeremiah 29:11, the thought of God towards you is a thought of peace and not of evil, second peter 1:3 says God has given you all things that pertain to life and godliness, in third John 2 He says Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. He also gave you power over all the enemies John 10:19 and no weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD. Isaiah 54:17.
All these and several other promises are for you in the scriptures, but you need to know them so that you can rebuke the devil whenever he wants to rob you of your rights.
Note this, if you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior, you are not a child of God and you don’t have any right until you do so.
As a child of God, the Lord will never deprive you of any right, but if you lack knowledge, the devil will take advantage of you and subject you to live like a slave, therefore seek for knowledge and the Lord will bless you in Jesus mighty name.
