We Are Heirs With No Fear

Being heirs with Christ, we have been given a Spirit of power, we are more than conquerors, we no longer have a spirit of fear and bondage.

Romans 8 v 15....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"........

Notice how this scripture is written. The first time the word spirit is spelled out with a little s, because it is of no significance, fear is no longer relevant, fear has no hold on you any longer, because notice the next time the word spirit is spelled out, (Spirit) that is because it is the Holy Spirit the word is talking about, and He will intercede to the Father when we cry out for help. He will put the spirit of fear under our feet, we have the authority to step on the neck of fear and trample that spirit under our feet. AMEN!

Romans 8 v 16-17a....The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ.......

While reading in my bible, there was a word focus on the word adoption. We are adopted unto God through Christ Jesus.

Greek word for adoption is huiothesia...huios meaning son, and thesis meaning placement.
It is a legal term that in this context indicates that believers have been given the full privileges of sonship in God's family. Concurrent with this placement into sonship, God places the Spirit of His Son into our hearts so that we become, in effect, His natural born children. As such, we are not just "adopted" (in the sense the word now conveys) but genuinely "begotten" by God, God makes children of men into children of God. Opposite than what He did with Jesus. Jesus being the son of God, became Son of Man.

So the next time the world tries to throw something at you, and cause fear to rise up in you, stop and remember that you are a Son of God and there is no such thing as fear in you. You just cry out to your Father and He will give you the strength and the power to trample that fear under your feet. HALLELUJAH! You have the rights to the Kingdom, you are of Royalty, you are God's child and when you get this into your spirit the Spirit Man (the Holy Spirit within you) will rise up in you and the enemy will have to bow down to God and can not harm you.

Now wouldn't you rather walk through life knowing that God is on your side and you are protected from the enemy instead of walking in fear from the things of this world, the things that are happening all around you. Don't you want to say like that song, "you can't touch this". Because in fact when you have the Holy Spirit living inside of you and you have faith in God's word then you can say, "you can't touch this" and say it with confidence. AMEN!
