You Own The World

Sunday, 18 October 2020

All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you (John 16:15).

Nobody ever talked like Jesus. Imagine His audacious words in the verse above! He said, "All things that the Father hath are mine." The beautiful thing is that He's made it so for you too. Romans 8:17 says you're an heir of God, and a joint-heir with Christ. Hallelujah!

In 1 Corinthians 3:21, the Apostle Paul said, "Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours." He went further in the 22nd verse to say the world is yours. How can anyone know this and be in lack or want? Peter understood it and declared, "According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness... (2 Peter 1:3).

If you'd accept, meditate and live by this truth, you wouldn't be intimidated by anything, whether circumstances, powers or government. You'd think big, because you're conscious that the world belongs to you in Christ Jesus.

Interestingly, He didn't say the world belongs to those who live in the "best" countries of the world. Think about it: where was Jesus born? A very small town, in a small country. But from that small country, He dominated the world. He told His disciples, "...be of good cheer; I have overcome the world" (John 16:33). He couldn't be limited by His earthly nativity or geographical location.

Your success or greatness has nothing to do with where you live, where you were born, who your parents are, or the job you do. It's about who you are in Christ. As heirs of the Sovereign God, the Word declares that all things are yours; have this consciousness and live in dominion and self-sufficiency every day.

Confession

God's divine power has given me all things that pertain to life and godliness. I have no lack or want. I'm the seed of Abraham; therefore the world is mine; all things are mine, because I'm an heir of God, and a joint-heir with Christ. Blessed be God!
