(Refuse The Beggarly Life)
TO THE BIBLE: Romans 8:16-17
“The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.”
God’s promise to bless Abraham and make Him great wasn’t just to Abraham alone but to his seed after him. God made a covenant with Abraham and through that covenant; He willed the whole world to him and his seed. Understand that the seed referred to here isn’t Isaac, Abraham’s physical descendant, but to Christ: “Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” who is Christ” (Galatians 3:16).
God was looking beyond Abraham’s physical children; He was looking at Christ. Then the same chapter tells us, “…If you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:29). Thus, we’re the seed of Abraham and by extension, the possessors of all things. All the promises God made to Abraham, by which he became the possessor of all things are fulfilled in us! That means you also have become the possessor of heaven and earth like Abraham. No wonder the Apostle Paul looked at the new creation and came to one conclusion: “…all things are yours” (1 Corinthians 3:21).
Refuse to live a beggarly life; live from the mountain top. When you pray, you no longer have to cry to God, asking Him to bless or help you! There’s really no reason to ask Him for anything for yourself anymore because as His heir, the whole world belongs to you. You’re the possessor of all things. Let this mindset control the way you live.
Galatians 3:9; Galatians 4:6-7
I refuse to beg and I refuse to lack, because I’m an heir of God and a joint heir with Christ. I have dominion and influence in the Name of Jesus! I’m making progress, moving forward, waxing greater and greater by the day, because I’m blessed with faithful Abraham.
