Transitioning from Servants to Sons- A Word by Robert Murphy

on

“The earth is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God.” Romans
8:19. For far too long many of us have operated in a mindset of a servant
and not as a son. This has caused us to move with no power and little
change in our communities. For us to see change and impact our cities we
must think like sons and daughters of the Father.

When we look at scripture we see a big difference in the way servants
function compared to sons. Servants are led by their desires and wants,
while sons are led by the Spirit of God (Romans 8:14). In Proverbs 29:19,
Solomon writes that a servant will not be corrected by words; for though he
understood he will not answer. But he tells his son in Proverbs 3:11, “to
despise not the chastening of the Lord; neither be weary of his
correction.” Let me go a little deeper because I want us to be walking in
our true identity…

Servants don’t walk in fresh revelation!

Jesus tells his disciples in John 15:15, “Henceforth I call you not
servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord forth: but I have
called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my father I have
made known unto you.” Do you see what Jesus is telling us? That servants
don’t know what the Father is doing. Sons know what the Father is doing.
Jesus tells us as much in John 5:17, “Jesus therefore answered and said
unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of
himself, but what he seeth the Father doing: for what things soever he
doeth, these the Son also doeth in like manner.” As long as we keep walking
in the mindset of a servant and not sons we won’t have the revelation to
change our cities.

How do I know if I’m walking in the mindset of a servant or a son?

Let’s look at the story of the prodigal son. You can find this story in
Luke 15. Both the sons showed characteristics of a servant, and not a son.
First we will look at the younger son.

  1. The younger son said give me what is mine. Servants will always be
    focused on me! While sons will look to please the Father, how can I
    help someone else.
  2. He wasted it all away. Servants, because they don’t pay the price
    themselves, will waste away what is given to them. A son will look to
    see how he can invest it and bring increase.
  3. Servants have no vision for the future. They are just living for this
    moment.

  1. He was angry and jealous of his brother getting a party. Servant
    mindset will get mad and jealous when something good happens to someone
    else.
  2. He was quick to point out what he had done, that he had never left.
    Servants will tell you all the great things they’ve done. They want you
    to know. They are very prideful.
  3. Lastly, the older son never realized that everything in the house was
    his. His vision was on what everyone else was doing, making sure no one
    got more than him. He failed to realize he could ask for anything. It
    was all his!

Sons have inheritance, servants do not.

Sons, in scripture, always received an inheritance with the oldest
receiving a double portion. In 2 kings 2 it comes time for Elijah to be
taken up to Heaven. The sons of the prophets come to Elisha to tell him
that his master was going to be taken away from him. They do this twice,
and both times Elisha tells them to be quiet. When time comes for Elijah to
be taken up he asks Elisha what he can do for him? Elisha’s reply was,
“Give me a double portion of your spirit.” Elijah tells him that he had
asked a hard thing, never the less, if he saw him as he was being taken up
he could have it! When Elijah is taken up by the whirlwind to heaven Elisha
cries, “My father, my father” and picks up his mantle and receives the
double portion. One important thing to learn from this story is that the
sons of the prophets were all trained by Elijah too, but Elisha was the
only one who received the double portion. You see the sons of the prophets
referred to Elijah as a master, not a father. Because of this, they
received the award of a servant, not that of a son. Elisha saw him as a
Father and received the inheritance.

It’s time that the sons begin to manifest on the Earth, but to do so we
have to change our mindsets. Your destiny awaits, let’s step into it.
