The Inheritance Is Already Yours - June 5th 2024

“ …that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me” (Acts 26:18 KJV).

 

Every child of God is born into an incorruptible inheritance in Christ. There’s an inheritance for you. The Apostle Paul refers to it in Ephesians 3:8 as unsearchable riches: “…the unending (boundless, fathomless, incalculable, and exhaustless) riches of Christ [wealth which no human being could have searched out]” (AMPC).


If this is true, and thank God it is, why then are there many people who are struggling in life when they ought to be living in God’s abundant blessings? It’s because of their ignorance of God’s truths. God said in Hosea 4:6, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge….” 


No wonder Paul said in Acts 20:32, “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.” The inheritance is already yours; but through study and meditation on the Word, you enjoy that which is already yours in Christ. 


Everything that God has placed in this world is not for the angels or Himself but for us! If it is true, why should a Christian labour endlessly just to get something which belongs to him in Christ? Something is wrong.


The Bible says He’s already blessed us with ALL spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 1:3). God already did everything He needed to do about the salvation, health and prosperity of every man, woman, boy and girl on the face of earth. Now, He wants everyone to live in blessings and enjoy their inheritance. 


2 Peter 1:3 says, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness….” Can you now see that there’s no need for you to struggle in life? You’ve been brought into a life of manifold blessings. 


The Bible says, “Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits…” (Psalm 68:19). Psalm 18:19 says, “He brought me forth also into a large place….” That’s the place of honour, wealth and great glory; your place of inheritance in Christ where you prosper and all your needs are met. The inheritance is already yours; so wake up and enjoy that which belongs to you in Christ. 


PRAYER/CONFESSION

"Dear Father, I rejoice in the unsearchable riches that are mine through the Lord Jesus Christ. Today, I declare my faith in your Word and walk in the fullness of the incorruptible inheritance I have in Him. I function from the place of blessing and abundance in Christ; the place of honour, wealth and great glory, where all my needs are met in your supply system, in Jesus' Name. Amen."
