A WONDERFUL INHERITANCE (PART III)
”How we praise God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every blessing in heaven because we belong to Christ”. (Eph 1 : 3 TLB)
The Lord himself 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!” (Psalm 16: 5-6 TLB)
Have you given your life to Christ? If yes. Then God has blessed you with every blessing in heaven. The greatest thing anyone can be is to be like Christ, the Son of the Most High God. Everything man lost in Eden when Adam sinned has been restored through Jesus Christ. In law, there are two ways to qualify for an inheritance; either by birth or by adoption. When you are born again, you are born into the rights, priviledges and benefits of the new relationship. Apostle John says:
”He came unto his own and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1 : 11-12 KJV). Take note of the word ”Sons”. Children go for toys, but Sons go for inheritance. Let’s further examine some components of our wonderful inheritance:
An heir of eternal life (1 John 5:11-12)
Blessed coming in and going out (Deut. 28:6)
Blessed with all spiritual blessings (Eph. 1:3)
Healed by His stripes (1 Peter 2:24)
Power and authority over the enemy (Luke 10:19)
Above only and never beneath (Deut 28:13)
More than a conqueror (Romans 8: 37)
Establishing God’s Word here on earth (Matthew 16:19)
An overcomer by the Blood of the Lamb (Rev. 12:11)
Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world (1 John 4:4)
Each of the components above call for special celebration. Go ahead and celebrate. What you celebrate is what gets magnified in your life.
P R A Y E R
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you so much for blessing me with all spiritual blessings in heaven. I celebrate your loving-kindness towards me. Let your face always beam with joy as you look down at me in Jesus Name. Amen.
D E C L A R A T I O N
May you possess your full inheritance here and hereafter in Jesus Name. May you not settle for toys in Jesus Name. Amen.
