How can we tell the rea from the fake today? We have so many ways to duplicate something and make it look like it is real, when in reality it is a copy of the original at best. In Ephesians 1:13 we are told that we are sealed by the Holy Spirit at our conversion, and when that happens we are truly apart of God’s Kingdom. When God gives us His holy Spirit, it is as if He stamps us with a seal that reads, “This person belongs to me and is an authentic citizen of My Divine Kingdom, and a member of My Divine Family. The Spirit is the proof to Satan at his accusation before the throne that we belong to God. Why is this important? This seal is the proof that we belong to God. It is not based on our good works, it is not even based on the families that we are born into, or the churches we attend. What validates our authenticity is the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives. That is what makes us different from those who have no relationship with God. We are not different in our own strength, we are different because of the strength of the Lord in us through the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit. This enables us to rest in the Power of God during the trials of life, and keeps us humble when we find ourselves overwhelmed with the blessings of God. Today, find your peace with God through the truths of the Word of God.
