Set Your Focus On The Word - November 16th 2023

“And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified” (Acts 20:32 KJV).

 

Did you notice that the Bible doesn't tell you to build yourself with the word; it says the word will build you. So, all you have to do is digest the Word; have it inside you so that you can talk it and live it. The Bible says, "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.." (Colossians 3:16).


Not only is the Word able to build you up, it's able to give you an inheritance. Maybe your friend got a large inheritance from his grandfather that made him rich, but you didn't quite get anything from yours; it makes no difference. Your inheritance in Christ supersedes and outclasses any inheritance you could ever get in this world.


As an heir of God and a joint-heir with Christ, you're the inheritor of everything God owns, which includes the whole world. Psalm 24:1 says, "The earth is the LORDS' , and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein." in Haggai 2:8, He said, "The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts."


Also, read Psalm 50:10-12; the Lord said, "For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine... for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof." This should give you an idea of your inheritance in Christ.


The inheritance was given to you in Christ Jesus the moment you were born again. You were given all things that pertain to life and godliness. But Satan, being a rebel, may try to cheat you out of God's best. Stand your ground and keep your focus on the Word of God. Every so often, declare, "I'm what God says I am, and I have what God says I have. The whole world is mine. Glory to God!"


PRAYER/CONFESSION

"Dear Father, your Word is my guide, my strength and my inheritance. I grow and flourish in every area of my life; I'm built up and strengthened by the word. Thank you for the power and glory of your word in my life, in Jesus' Name. Amen. "
