Understanding Your Sonship Connection is the Key to Living in God’s Fulfilling Love Daily
Rest and Contentment
Freedom from Counterfeit Affections and False Comforts
Connection to the Joy of the Lord as Your Strength
Sonship means my interaction with God is turned on. I’m connected to His love for me and open to anything He wants to say to me. However, if I’m not careful, I find myself disconnected from this place. Let me explain how this happens to me and what I do about it.
How to Have Creative Flow
My life is filled with projects, many of which are creative in nature. Writing newsletters, blog posts, and getting together teaching outlines all require my heart be on-line, open to the flow of God’s love and creativity.
But probably like most of you, there are days where inspiration and creativity seems blocked. It’s as if a gigantic wall is in front of me and I can’t get over it. I feel blocked, distracted, and antsy. This is farthest thing from being at rest and content.
On these types of days, controlling my flesh is difficult. It wants food, it wants to shop, it wants to just goof off and do nothing at all. Desires for false comforts surround and inundate me.
Now to be honest, there are times I’ve been working hard for days and I simply just need a break. This is true for both the mind and body. Too many days in a row working out hard at the gym can actually hinder growth of your muscles. But this is not always the case.
I need to discern if I just need a break, or if my heart has gone “offline.”
What do I mean when I say my heart has gone “offline?” This is when I am no longer “connected” to God’s love and joy. I become consumed more with me — my wants, my needs.
It’s when I need some time alone with God to figure out what’s happening in my heart to cause me to feel this way.
Some reasons might be:
I’m irritated with someone or feeling slighted by them. If so, I need to to work through that in prayer.
I’m feeling some overwhelm of all that’s on my plate. If so, I need to break things down to the step in front of me. I need to reaffirm my faith that God is right on time with His plan for my life.
I’m feeling powerless. If so, I need to discern why and talk to God about it.
I feel God is upset with me. If so, I need to check for lies about God’s nature I may be believing. Then look to see if there is any guilt or unforgiveness I’m holding on to, and if so, I simply need to repent or forgive.
With the hindrances out of the way, I can re-connect back to sonship and get “online” again. My heart is returns once more to being open to God, to His voice, His love, and His joy over me.
By reestablishing this Sonship Connection, I again walk in the knowledge of being a favored son (or daughter) of the Most High God.
