Restoring of sons and daughters in 2019 "For though ye have ten thousand instructors (teachers) in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you (you have become children) through the gospel." ~ 1 Corinthians 4:15 This past week, I heard something that really struck me: "Teachers birth followers. Fathers (and mothers) birth sons and daughters." In 2019, there has been a burden of the Lord released for sons and daughters. About four weeks ago during midnight prayer, I heard the Lord speak the phrase "sons and daughters" as we waited on the Lord in prayer. At that moment, I had no more than those three words "sons and daughters," and so I begin to declare just those three words on the prayer call. What I believe is that this year we will watch the Lord perform signs and wonders through the identity of the sons and daughters that transforms generations, nations, and prepares for the coming of Christ. Since I heard this phrase a few weeks ago, Holy Spirit has brought greater revelation of what is on the Father's heart concerning sons and daughters.
My prayer is that we receive the burden of the Lord for sons and daughters, that we embrace the restoration of the identity of sonship (daughterhood) to a loving Father, and that the Father continues to reveal His heart to those who are His eternal sons and daughters.
