TAKE YOUR INHERITANCE
(The Word Delivers Your Inheritance To You)
TO THE BIBLE Acts 20:32
“So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.”
As Christians, we’re born of the Word (1 Peter 2:23); the Word gave birth to us; therefore, our lives can only be built and sustained by the Word. From the moment you made Jesus the Lord of your life, the building process began; the Word builds you spiritually, mentally, physically, financially, and in all areas of life. Furthermore, the Word is able to “give” you an inheritance among all those that are sanctified. This is quite an interesting thought in Acts 20:32. The Spirit of God, through the Apostle Paul, wrote this to the Church. Why would He say this to Christians who already have an inheritance in Christ Jesus?
First, understand that He wasn’t talking about the ownership of the inheritance; rather, he was talking about the inheritance being delivered into your hands. For example, you might be the rightful owner of inheritance, e.g., a house, and never be able to get into it, perhaps because of legal processes due to difficult individuals claiming ownership of the same property. In the same way, though all things are legally yours in Christ Jesus, there’re rebel holders of authority—satan and his cohorts—who often try to sway God’s people from enjoying their inheritance.
The Word of God is able to literally deliver your inheritance into your hands, to enjoy, irrespective of the activities of the adversary. If you’d constantly meditate on the Word, not only will you be built for success, excellence and the victorious life, the Word will also deliver into your hands that which is rightfully yours in Christ. So, open up your appetite for the Word. Bombard your mind with Scriptures until you’re completely inundated, and you’re configured to think from the Word’s perspective only.
Doers—Not Hearers Only
Therefore lay aside all filthiness and [a]overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
15 Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all.
16 Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.
Dear Father, with faith, meekness, and gladness, I receive your engrafted Word, which builds me up and continually delivers to me what belongs to me in Christ. Your Word is effectual in me today, producing in me what it talks about, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
