“For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out “Abba, Father.”” Rom 8:15

We’ve all seen it in the playground and some of us have said it… ”My dad’s better than your dad!”. Paul reminds us here that as followers of Jesus, our dad trumps everything else and as such we no longer have to live our lives in fear.

It is good to remind ourselves who we are in God. There are so many things that can make us fearful; the threat of terrorism, the safety of our children, the fear of rejection and judgement. When you fear something, it is like a chain that wraps around your hands and feet.

Fear can have a profound effect on how you view the world and how you chose to live your life. Making decision from a place of fear is never a good idea. Someone once said, ‘fear has killed more dreams than failure ever did’.

What decisions face you today or over the next week? You do not need to make these from a place of fear but God wants you to make them as His child who He loves perfectly.

You are God’s child, He loves you intimately and remember, your dad is bigger than all things!
