“For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.” (Romans 8:19 KJV)
Where are the real “sons of God?” The original Greek text renders the word “manifestation” as uncovering. In other words, every believer with the Holy Spirit in them is a “son of God” whether they be male or female because “son” is general term that means child, but they must learn who they are according to scripture in order for their true identity to be uncovered. When a child of God is uncovered then they can begin to do as Jesus Christ did when he walked the earth of whom Acts 10:38 declares,“how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.”
When you know who you really are in God and what you are supposed to do, then you can stop wasting time and do some real good in the earth. You would have thought that Jesus’ disciples knew his true nature, but after he calmed the storm in Luke 8:22-25 they asked each other,“What manner of man is this! for he commandeth even the winds and water, and they obey him.” They evidently had no idea what an uncovered son of God was capable of and it blew their minds to see the supernatural power of God work through a flesh and blood person to control the weather like that. That same power is available to work through you, too. Jesus even said in John 14:12,“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.” That’s right! You are anointed to heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons and even control the weather, but you must have faith in God to make all things possible. (see Matthew 19:26; Mark 9:23, 10:27 and Luke 18:27)
Today let your faith rise to a level that makes the supernatural possible in your life on a daily basis. As you grow in your understanding of God’s word you will begin to operate as a child of God. Miracles, signs and wonders will become commonplace in your life. You will begin to go about doing good and healing all those that are oppressed by the devil it doesn’t matter if they are at the mall, your job, or even an entire hospital ward. You are a child of God and it’s time to awaken to your birthright. Arise, oh child of God! Arise!
