Are You Enjoying Your Inheritance?
// Kenneth W. Hagin
If you are born again, you are an heir of God (Gal. 3:29) and a joint-heir with Jesus Christ
(Rom. 8:17). And you have a glorious inheritance! But are you living like an heir? Ephesians 1:18 says that God has given you the riches of His glory in Christ. This means you have certain rights and privileges in Jesus. But it's up to you to find out what they are. Why is this so important? Because the success of your Christian life is measured (to a great extent) by understanding
who you are in Christ and what you possess in Him—and then by taking advantage of what belongs to you.
How do you find out what belongs to you? The Word of God contains His will and testament, telling you what you have inherited. His promises tell you what your rights and privileges are in Christ. When you receive those promises, you can live in the fullness of your inheritance.
No one will force you to receive your inheritance in Christ, not even God Himself. Of course, He wants you to receive what belongs to you, but He won't come down and force you to receive the riches of His glory in Christ. You've got to take your stand on the Word for what belongs to you.
When the devil walks in and tries to bring his sickness, lack, and trouble, you've got to tell him, "Devil, I am an heir! This belongs to me. In the Name of Jesus, leave now!" Rebuke him and put him in his place. Don't let him take advantage of you.
It's up to you. Will you receive the promises of God? Will you live in the freedom that belongs to you? Make the decision to stand your ground and claim all the wonderful promises that already belong to you today as an heir!
