When my children were babies, they were lovely cuddly bundles of joy loaded with potential. I did most of what they needed for them. From bathing to dressing, walking, cooking and the bathroom too. As they grew older, I begun to reduce what I physically did for them. I stopped changing their diapers cause those were gone. I stopped feeding them, cause now they could get that done on their own. They were now growing from just being children to becoming sons. There is something wrong when a twenty year old still needs diapers, clothing changing and a walker.
God wants us to grow from the children level to a place of sonship. We must mature from needing someone to do all the work for us while we sit around and do baby things. We need to go beyond the milk to the solid food. We must learn to take responsibility, be held accountable and commit ourselves to go through the process and mature into the destiny we have in life. Becoming a son is a process that takes you through the school of hard knocks, the valley of challenges and the temptations of the world. You then stand bold and strong, immovable and unshakable because you are not just a child of God. You are a son.
SCRIPTURE READING: 1 Corinthians 13:11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Loving father, am glad to be called your child. As I learn to take responsibility lord, teach me to be accountable and willing to commit myself to go through this process of maturity into my destiny. Amen
