I thought since it’s “Mother Day” I would write about something more precise today.
God is your Father and you are His daughter. But what does it mean to be a daughter of God? Why is being a daughter of God significant? Does your life reflect your identity as God’s daughter?
Throughout scripture God demonstrates that He clearly loves His Children- those He has both created and￼ called.
It is a enormous honor for us to be considered daughters of God. No other creature in the universe has this opportunity. We are His children, His daughters.
As His child you are the unique right to go before Him and ask for anything we need. As His beloved daughters, we can be assured that we are welcome in His presence at any time.
Regardless of the situations we may find ourselves in, God opens His arms and allows us to approach His throne and bring before Him whatever concerns us in that moment
Just as a good earthly father invites his children to come to Him with their hurts and sorrows, so our Heavenly Father invites us, His beloved daughters, to lay our burdens down at His feet.
What It Means To Be A Daughter Of God?
It means you are deeply loved, beautifully cherished, and truly belong. It means you are His, and you have all the benefits of being His. It means your loved, recklessly, relentlessly, and redemptively.
As A Daughter Of God, You Are Loved By Him.
The Apostle John writes about this amazing love the Father has for us and how it’s demonstrated by he fact that He calls us His children. But more than that God demonstrated His incredible love for us by sending His Son to walk our roads and live a sinless life that we could not. He ultimately gave His Son as a sacrifice on our behalf.
John 3:16,says “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Som, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.”
As A Daughter Of God, You Belong To Him
One of my favorite books in the Bible is Hosea. In it God illustrates His love for His people through the life of the prophet.
At the time, Israel had wandered far from God’s call. And much of Hosea is spent describing God’s pain over the sinful and wicked ways of His people.
In the first chapter. Hosea’s wife bore a third child. Go’s commanded then to name their son Lo-ammi, which means “not my people.”
This was to demonstrate that He would no longer call Israel His people.
But in verse 10, God promises that in the future, then would be called “children of the living God.”
No matter what we have done, when we come to Christ we become daughters of living God.
We are no longer considered “not His people,” but through the Cross, we are declared His children and we belong to Him.
In fact, more that 40 times in Scripture you can read God’s beautiful declaration that we are His. The original verses are spoke over the nation of Israel, and through Christ’s sacrifice we are a,k welcomed as His own.
To be considered not simply friends of God, but daughters and heirs is a high honor indeed.
When the world seeks to drag us down and such the hope out of our hearts, we can be reminded that the One who created and sustains the Universe calls us His daughters. His children, His heirs.
