You have a wonderful destiny in God to fulfill. You have been uniquely created for a purpose in life that will bring great fulfillment to you.
- It will always be beyond our abilities to reach.
- We will have warfare, even giants to fight, in order to get there.
- We will need to develop skills we don’t currently have.
- And we will need a stronger faith.
Sonship inheritance is a huge key to receiving these needed resources and to fulfilling our destiny.
I define sonship as how we rightly relate to God and to the people He places in our lives.
Unique and Colorful Packages
I shared a message recently explaining my own challenge with sonship. My main obstacle with it was that I had no model from my earthly father. My sonship inheritance from him was actually negative life skills. The relationship I had with him was based on fear not love, so I had to learn the skills of sonship.
One of the difficulties I walked through in learning these skills was that the spiritual fathers and mothers God had placed in my life through the years came in unique and colorful packages. Typically they:
- Came in different packages than I expected.
- Imparted to me different gifts than I expected.
Yet these mentors always imparted just what I needed to take the next step. But I had to look past the packaging and appearances of them, stop judging what I thought they did or didn’t have for me, and simply receive what God wanted to give me through them.
There were certainly times I wanted to drop out of some of these relationships, but by God’s grace, I didn’t. Looking back I was always grateful I didn’t. If I would have, I would have missed some vitally important things God wanted to impart to me. Many things that were true keys to life.
I want to encourage you today to keep pursuing sonship. Work through any hurt that may stand in the way or any judgements you have developed, because the Body of Christ and the world need your contribution! God has called you for a specific purpose and destiny, a Sonship Inheritance, that only you can fulfill!
