The Light Bulb

So, this morning in my talk with God He sent me to Galatians 4, the chapter is titled "Sonship in Christ". I read it all this morning; prayed about it, recognized that God was talking to me about freedom. As the day progressed and I went to sit in on a group, I continued to think about Galatians. Some of the conversation in the group reminded me of my chapter, in fact it was this verse:
"Doesn't the privilege of intimate conversation with God make it plain that you are not a slave, but a child? And, if you are a child, you're also an heir, with complete access to the inheritance."
Even though God has said this to me many times, I heard it differently today. I have had many intimate conversations with God, but I have not always grasped what a privilege that is. And, in those conversations, as He is telling me to focus on Him, which is so plain and simple, I sometimes am still a slave to other things. Yet, He is right there saying to me, "You are not a slave anymore, You are my child, just focus on me, I have already given you an inheritance, it's yours!"
Ah, the light bulb went on, this morning.  It's not the typical light bulb. It's not like I didn't already know this, believe this, or even live this. God has blessed my life with freedom.  But, I have work to do, we all have connections to make and areas in life that need surrendered. And, today, He put a light bulb in one of those areas, and he did it through Galatians 4 and through a men's group.
Say That Again, Jesus, the intimate communication with You is a privilege, and You have called me and all Your children out of slavery.
