Papa, You’ve set me free from any chain that tries to bind me

Father, how perfect Your timing always is, especially when it came to Your sending Jesus! “When the time arrived, long ago, that was set by You, You sent Your Son, born among us of a woman, born under the conditions of the law so that He might redeem those of us who have been kidnapped by the law…” By that entrance into human history, we have been set free to experience our rightful heritage.
Thanks for Your assurance that I am fully adopted as Your own daughter, because You sent the Spirit of Your Son into my life crying out, “Papa! Father!” How wonderful to have this privilege of intimate conversation with You! How assuring it is to know that I’m no longer a slave to the law, but am a child of grace. Because I’m Your child, I am also an heir, with complete access to the inheritance You have in store. Bring joy to my heart this day as I considers how deeply You love me and as I anticipate the Day I get to meet You face to face, crawl upon Your lap and be held next to Your heart.
Thank You, Papa, for all You’ve done! Let nothing else be my utmost desire except to follow You. Keep shaping me to be just like Jesus. Amen.
