A WONDERFUL INHERITANCE (Part II)

The Lord himself is my inheritance, my prize. He is my food and drink, my highest joy! He guards all that is mine. He sees that I am given pleasant brooks and meadows as my share! What a wonderful inheritance! I will bless the Lord who counsels me, he gives me wisdom in the night. He tells me what to do. I am always thinking of the Lord; and because he is so near, I never need to stumble or to fall. (Psalm 16: 5-8 TLB)

It takes a heart that is desperately in love with God to truly say ”He is my food and drink, my highest joy!” It is easy to obey God when one is in love with Him. The blessings of obedience are immeasurable (see Deut. 28: 1-14). Let’s meditate further on another set of some components of our wonderful inheritance:

A Son of God (Romans 8:14)

Led by the Spirit of God (Romans 8:14)

Kept in safety whenever I go (Psalm 91:11)

All needs met by Jesus (Philippians 4:19)

He cares for me (I pet 5:7)

Access to strength and power of His might (Eph 6:10)

Can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 3:13)

An heir of God and a joint heir with Jesus (Romans 8:17)

Divine habitation (John 14:23)

Heir to the Blessings of Abraham (Galatians 3:13)

If we fully appreciate who we are in Christ and what we have in him, we will fall in love over and over again with him – That is spiritual maturity. Proclaim it you have a wonderful inheritance in Christ Jesus.

P R A Y E R

Dear Heavenly Father, graciously open my eyes of understanding that I may fully appreciate who I am in Christ and all He has done for me. Grant me the grace to live for Him and be all that you want me to be and accomplish all that you want me to accomplish. May I leave nothing undone that I should do. I thank you for the wonderful inheritance I have in Christ Jesus your dear Son. Amen.

D E C L A R A T I O N

May you have a wonderful encounter with Christ this season in Jesus Name. Amen
