You Have the Right and Authority!
There's a powerful verse in the Bible that says that Jesus is the Light, but the world does not receive Him ... Right after this, the Bible says, “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name” (John 1:12).
This verse is extremely significant in our lives.
“To them He gave the right to become children of God ... ” These words touch me because above all, God wants to make you His child! God cherishes you and desires to take care of you ... yes, of you! And He gives you the right to become His child.
Whatever you dream of becoming or would like to see change in your life, the right to become God’s child is yours!
In this verse, the word for “the right” is the Greek “exousia,” which means power, authority, weight, influence, privilege. It’s your privilege to become God’s child, His heir, as Romans 8:17 affirms. Just as it is to receive the inheritance and even the territories He has reserved for you so that you can exercise the authority and influence God gives you.
Yes, you have the privilege of being a daughter, a son, of the Almighty God!
Today, live like you’re His beloved child!
