'who i am in christ'
Heirs of God
The richest inheritance known to man waits for us. People drag around all of yesterday's doubts, disappointments, and disasters and splash them with an unending list of 'What-if's.' What if I won the Lotto and all my financial worries evaporated?' 'What if I went from disabled to healed?' 'What if I moved from unwanted to wildly loved?' Ironically, all the while, we live lives as the heirs of God.
Better than any financial windfall, better than any worldly riches that make things look better than they are, better than any cosmetic treatment that extends the illusion that we can deny our age, we are already richer than we can imagine as heirs to the kingdom. God's urging us to lean forward towards our inheritance and not look back. He's calling us to stretch, even strain, to reach for Him.
I'm reminded to fully live in victory! Rising above my circumstances, living in the abundance of God's blessings. Letting go of discouragement stemming from satan's lies. My greatest victories are in front of me. God is leading me to my eternal endowment. His guarantee will keep my life goals, my vision, and my legacy front and center, fully focused on what can happen versus what can't.
"Jesus, in the moment of feeling the weight of the world, help shift my focus to what's ahead. Help me soak in the many ways I'm blessed and with it, feel my troubles evaporate. I love you Jesus, Amen!"
Romans 8:17 (ERV)
"...we will get the blessings God has for his people. He will give us all that he has given Christ."
Galatians 3:29 (GW)
"If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's descendants and heirs, as God promised.
Titus 3:7 (CJB)
"He did it so that by his grace we might come to be considered righteous by God and become heirs, with the certain hope of eternal life."
