1 Peter 1:4
To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
Do you understand the value of your inheritance?
Sometimes the people you trust don’t keep their promises. Estate values diminish. The amount of money you thought would be there had to be used for something else. The stock market determined your net worth to be less than you thought. Kings and kingdoms have passed away and will continue to do so. But these principles do not apply to the Kingdom of God.
Daniel 4:3 How great are His signs, And how mighty His wonders! His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And His dominion is from generation to generation. (New King James Version, NKJV)
You are heir to the throne of God. God’s kingdom will stand throughout eternity. Heaven is what God has promised. Your inheritance will remain pure, untarnished, and reserved for you. Your only responsibility is to keep the faith and believe.
Colossians 1:22-23 yet Christ has now reconciled you [to God] in His physical body through death, in order to present you before the Father holy and blameless and beyond reproach—23 [and He will do this] if you continue in the faith, well-grounded and steadfast, and not shifting away from the [confident] hope [that is a result] of the gospel that you have heard, which was proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which [gospel] I, Paul, was made a minister. (Amplified Bible, AMP)
You demonstrate what you believe through your walk, your worship, and reverential awe of God. The hope of God’s promise being revealed is a powerful weapon against the enemy. Understand who you are and use that understanding to fight victoriously. Always remember, there is no other Father you want to have.
Please agree with me as I pray:
Father, from a natural standpoint, I have no idea what it means to be an heir to a kingdom. But I thank You for teaching me what it means to be Your heir. I accept what You’ve done for me and embrace my inheritance. I kneel before You knowing there is no other family I would rather be a part of. There is nothing in any lineage that is more powerful or that I would want to lay claim to. I only want the blessings and birthright set aside for your children. I know Your kingdom will not pass away. I know You will uphold every word You’ve spoken to me and every promise You’ve given me. I know there is nothing I have done to deserve this honor. I simply say thank You. I know I must mirror in the life I live, the gratitude I speak of. Thank You for reminding me. Thank You for keeping me. I want to live so I can dwell in Your presence forever…
