If you are born again, you are an heir of God (Gal. 3:29) and a joint-heir with Jesus Christ (Rom. 8:17). You have a glorious inheritance! But are you living like an heir?
Ephesians 1:18 says that God has given you the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints. That means you have certain rights and privileges in Jesus. But it’s up to you to find out what they are. Why is this so important? Because the success of your Christian life is measured (to a great extent) by understanding who you are in Christ and what you possess in Him—and then by taking advantage of what belongs to you.
How do you find out what belongs to you? The Bible contains the details of what you have inherited. God’s promises tell you your rights and privileges in Christ. When you receive those promises, you can live in the fullness of your inheritance.
No one, not even God, will force you to receive what you’ve inherited in Christ. Of course, your Heavenly Father wants you to enjoy what belongs to you. But He won’t make you receive the riches of His glorious inheritance. You must take a stand on His Word to possess them.
When the devil tries to bring sickness, lack, and trouble, say, “I am an heir of God! Health, provision, and peace belong to me. Devil, in the Name of Jesus, leave now!” Rebuke him and put him in his place. Don’t let him take advantage of you.
It’s up to you. Will you receive what God has promised you? Will you live in the freedom that is yours? Make the decision to stand your ground and claim all the wonderful blessings that you already have as your inheritance!
This issue of The Word of Faith will help you learn to enjoy all that God has for you. Don’t miss a single page! And be sure to share your favorite quotes with us on social media. Just #RhemaWOF.
