Have you ever seen a movie about knights bravely fighting for their king and his kingdom? Today, this era of knights is fortunately over, but did you know…
- That a higher Kingdom exists: the Kingdom of God
- That God, as sovereign King, made you heir to His Kingdom.
In fact, Romans 8:17 affirms this truth: “Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ…” (the Bible, NIV)
Have you ever doubted that you are really His heir? Do you think that your current inheritance is more a series of worries, complications, and trials? I understand…I too sometimes go through this.
But remember…before they sinned, Adam and Eve lived in the Garden of Eden, happy and in communion with God. They ruled over all creation and enjoyed all the Creator’s privileges. Unfortunately, with sin, they lost all their privileges. And the consequences of this sin have come down upon all men, on you and me…
But Jesus took the curse in your place, in my place, so that we could “sit together [with God] in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (see Ephesians 2:5-6, NKJV). Jesus paid the price that allows you to once again be an heir of the Kingdom of God today!
So, you’re already seated in heavenly places with the Father. You already have the right to His inheritance! And God, in His grace, gives you the ability to win your battles here on Earth.
I encourage you to pray with me now…“I praise You, God, for making me Your child, Your heir! Give me the strength today to fight the good fight of faith…I reign with You in Jesus Christ! Amen.”
Have a great day at your Father’s side!
