Galatians 4:7 (KJV); Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are his child, God has made you his heir.
A long time ago, I examined my life and realised that I did not have much to show for the many years that I had spent in employment.
I went to work every week, served my employer diligently and did what I had to do to get things done. However, I could not point to much and testify that this was an addition to my life.
I have known people who after the last day of their work with a certain employer will leave with nothing but that last month’s salary after many years of labour.
During that time of my life, my biological father approached me and said something extremely fundamental and which set me on a course of self-examination and inquiry. He said, in our local dialect, ‘My son, I hope you are not struggling with the spirit of slavery.’
Slavery is a mindset that will always limit how far one progresses in life. Boundaries will always exist to define the scope of a slave’s success and increase in life.
Slavery creates the mindset that one’s primary source of provision is their job, business or if one is a minister, then the offertory bag. Slavery looks at the insufficiencies of the self to define the extent of one’s growth.
That is not what God wills for you as His child. He says you are His seed and not a slave. It means that there must be a mindset shift. The seed of God has an abundance mentality. The seed of God does not look to his job as his source because he knows that no employer can ever pay enough. The seed of God defines his wealth not by his wages but by the inheritance he has in Christ.
You are a seed of God.

GOLDEN NUGGET: The seed of God has an abundance mentality. The seed of God does not look to his job as his source because he knows that no employer can ever pay him enough. The seed of God defines wealth not by his wages but by the inheritance he has in Christ.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for the glorious riches that are my portion in Christ. Thank You because I have been given all things that pertain to life and godliness. I can never lack for all things are mine. I look to You as my provider and source, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
