Devotions for After 40 Days of Prayer & Fasting – Day 43

Day 43 Sons of God

Daily Prayer: “Jesus I want to know you more intimately. I want to experience the fullness of your Holy Spirit and power in my life. I want you to use me to impact this world for you!”

Read focus passage Galatians 4:4-7. As you read, let the joy of being raised with Christ hit you: you are a son and an heir!

Read out loud the focus verse for today: Galatians 4:6 “Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father” Repeat this verse over and over to yourself today.

Meditate today: “God sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts… who calls out, “Abba Father.”  Through the Spirit of Christ in you, you have come into a new kind of intimate relationship with God whereby He is your “Abba Father” and you are His son.       

Spend 30+ min in prayer in the morning worshiping and rejoicing in all that it means to you that God has made you one of His own sons (or daughters) and made you an heir to His kingdom. Do this at other times during the day as well. Weep at the foot of the cross in thanksgiving to God and Christ for all they did for you to have such a relationship with God. Newly commit yourself to spending devoted time to cultivating an intimate “Abba Father” relationship with Him each day. Claim the promise of your “full rights” as a son to go forth in your mission to save others.

Closing prayer: “Holy Lord Jesus, thank you for raising me up with you to be a son of God. Now as I step out of 40 days of prayer and fasting, use me to change the world.”
