13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.
Sonship Through the Spirit
12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. 13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. 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.” 16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, 17 and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.
Father we thank You for the Holy Spirit. We thank You that You have given Him to us so we may hear you clearly and make good decisions. Forgive us for not paying attention to Him or training our children how to obey the Spirit of God inside of them. Show us how to obey and train our children to do the same. Help us pay attention when You are speaking to and through our children. Give us discernment to recognize their gifts and train them by Your Word. Help us disciple our children into the greatness that they are called to. We declare that they will be a generation that will not be moved by the wickedness of the world but be a standard for truth and righteousness. Stir up a spirit of prayer in us that will cause us to function as parents in new levels. Speak to us that we may speak prophetically into our children’s lives and activate what God has already put inside of them. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen!
