Deeper Day 112: Loophole

Loophole: An ambiguity or inadequacy in the law or a set of rules. 

When God spoke this word to me, I knew in my heart exactly what He was saying. As a follower of Christ, when there is a struggle in the world, even though my family may be affected in different ways we still walk it out abundantly.  We find ourselves being provided for in miraculous ways, both financially and relationally.  We carry a peace so firmly rooted in our core, that the tumultuous ways of the world, while still around us, don’t carry us away.  We (followers of Christ) seem to live in a loophole.

Let that sink in.

I have observed many people walk through very challenging situations, and those who are closely knitted together with the Father are always afforded so much protection, provision, support, etc. it is amazing.  When our family deals with trials we still find ourselves walking in an almost unearthly place through the whole event.  In my heart and mind, I am always certain we will make it through and that better things are coming, and they always do!

God has placed within His people, the DNA of heaven.  We have been grafted into God’s family line, through Christ Jesus, and now we can rest in our Father’s hand.  It’s time again, to remember Who your Daddy is.

Even though you already know what I’m about to write, it bears repeating all throughout our life.

When we accept Jesus as our Savior, we are grafted into the family line of God.

Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus Himself as the chief cornerstone.  In Him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord.  And in Him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by His Holy Spirit.   Ephesians 2:19-22

Prayer Moment:  God, thank You for grafting me into Your family.  Help me to always remember my position in Your house as I walk out the day to day life I lead.  Give me a clearer vision of how You would have me move forward each day.  Help me to step into the authority You have given to me as Your daughter.  Bless me as I learn more about what it truly means to be Your daughter.  Remove all poverty spirit that would threaten to block me from stepping into more of You, in Jesus name.  Give me the wisdom and courage to face each lie that comes to threaten me.  Show me Your truth every day.  Soak me in Your presence every day.  I adore You.  In Jesus name, Amen.

…and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root… Romans 11:17b
