The Father that Makes Us Heirs


And because we are His children, God has sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, “Abba, Father.” Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are His child, God has made you His heir.

Galatians 4:6-7 (NLT)




The Gospel states we’re forgiven, and we’ve become heirs! In Roman culture, only death could set you free from your title as a slave. Because of Jesus’ death on the cross, you’re set free and now called an heir to the Kingdom of God.


Prayer Practice


Sit in the truth that as an heir, you have the authority of God, the power of God, the wisdom of God, the love of God, and the patience of God.


Spend time in prayer thanking God for giving you:


  • His authority
  • His power
  • His love
  • His wisdom
  • His patience


Ask God to help you better understand your identity in Him! As an heir of God, pray boldly for God’s Kingdom to move in your life and the lives of others. Ask God, and don’t hold back.


Stop operating on your power and strength. Surrender to Him and let His life flow through you.
