Filii Dei | Offspring

"The children of the promise are counted as offspring" — Romans 9:8. 



So many promises we made in our life. Also, others promised us many things. We made small and big promises. Actually, every day we promise something to our brothers and sisters. Besides, we make important decisions. Yet, we know very well that we are weak and fragile. The human word can be strong but often it does not last long. On the other hand, the promise of God is everlasting and powerful. If the Lord promises us something, we can be sure that we will receive it. One of such promises tells us that we are children of God. We are heirs and adoptive children to whom "belong the glory, the worship and the promises" (v. 4).  We often forget about our dignity as children of God. Because of our bad experiences in our life, we doubt also God's promises. But it should be our strength to keep the word of God in our hearts and mind. God's promise never fails.

 

Have you received the word of prophecy for your present and future life? Do you still believe that God has a wonderful plan for you? You need to be patient and wait for God's promise to come true. But it will happen for sure. It will become true not because of your good works. You don't need to do anything. Your duty is only to trust in God and be ready when it comes into life. You are to discover the right place and proper time of God the loving Father. He will show you how the Good News fulfills in your life. For every promise of God comes from his eternal love towards you. Respond to him with your loving heart.
