Do You Know?
The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ… – Romans 8:16–17
When we are saved, the Spirit Himself comes to live inside of us. He begins to show us who we are and what we have become.
One of the things that happens is that He will bear witness with things. We will get a knowing in our spirit that something is wrong, but we don’t know how. We get a knowing that we are supposed to do something.
That knowing is the Holy Spirit nudging in the right direction. In the same, He also causes us to know that we are His children. When the thought comes to us, "How can you call yourself God’s child when you did x, y and z," the Holy Spirit causes us to know that we are His children by the blood of His Son on the Cross.
It is time that we paid attention to those knowings instead of ignore them.
