You Have Every Thing Because The Lord Is Your Inheritance



(You Have Every Thing Because The Lord Is Your Inheritance)

TO THE BIBLE Genesis 15:1,

“After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a
vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great


The underlined words spoken by God to Abraham in our opening
verse reminds of what He said later to Aaron in Numbers 18:20: “…I am your
portion and your inheritance among the children of Israel.” We understand from
the Scriptures that the Lord apportioned inheritance to the different tribes of
Israel except for the Levites, to whom He said, “I am your inheritance.”

How rich can you get when the Lord is your inheritance? How
glorious would your life be? Psalm 24:1 says, “The earth is the Lord’s, and all
its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein.” Since this is true, then
the earth and everything in it belongs to you because you’re His heir. Paul
understood this and said, “…all things are yours” (1 Corinthians 3:21).

Now you can understand why your prayer times shouldn’t be
spent asking God for things for yourself. What do you want to ask of one who’s
already given you everything, including Himself? You have Christ, and Christ is
everything. This truth should change your mentality and life forever. Is it
strength you require? The Bible says He’s your strength! Therefore, testify
like the Psalmist, “…The LORD is the strength of my life…” (Psalm 27:1).

Is it wisdom you think you need? The Bible says Christ is
your wisdom (1 Corinthians 1:30). You’ve been granted all that you require for
life and godliness; you’ve been launched into a life of glory, excellence and
superabundance. No wonder the Psalmist exclaimed, “The lines have fallen to me
in pleasant places; Yes, I have a good inheritance” (Psalm 16:6). All things
are yours!

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who
has blessed me with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. I’ve
been granted all that I require for life and godliness, and I bless my world
with the unsearchable riches of Christ and His Gospel that I bear, in Jesus’
Name. Amen.
