Rank #1: Do You Choose Inheritance or Circumstances?

Podcast cover
Read more

Listen to Today's Devotion

One of the most famous stories in the Bible has to do with inheritance.  The Hebrews had just been delivered from Egyptian captivity.  God led them and Moses to the edge of the promised land and made this offer:  “Send some men to explore the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the Israelites.  From each ancestral tribe send one of its leaders” (Numbers 13:1-2).

God didn’t tell the Israelites to conquer, invade, or secure the land.  No, He told them he was giving it to them.  Their choice was clear–  promises or circumstances?  The circumstances said,  “No way…stay out….there are giants in the land!”  God’s promise said, “The land is yours.  The victory is yours…take it.”

Circumstances say, cower to your fears.  Your inheritance says otherwise:  You are a child of the King.  And because God’s promises are unbreakable our hope is unshakable!

Rank #2: Live Adventurously Expectant

Podcast cover
Read more

Listen to Today's Devotion

As a child of God, this resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life.  It’s adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike, ‘What’s next, Papa?’  God’s Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are.  We know who he is, and we know who we are:  Father and children.  And we know we are going to get an unbelievable inheritance!” (Romans 8:15-17 MSG).

God says, “Hey, Lucado.  You are an heir to the joy of Christ.  Why not ask Jesus to help you?”  “And you, Mr. Without-a-Clue, aren’t you an heir to God’s storehouse of wisdom?  “Mrs. Worrywart, why do you let fears steal your sleep?  Are you not a beneficiary of God’s trust fund?”

Approach God’s throne not as an interloper but as a child of the living and loving God.  Because His promises are unbreakable, our hope is unshakable!

Rank #3: Heirs of God and Co-Heirs With Christ

Podcast cover
Read more

Listen to Today's Devotion

After spending the better part of an hour reciting the woes of my life to my wife, Denalyn interrupted me with a question.  “Is God in this anywhere?”  I hate it when she does that.  What had happened to me?  I was focusing on my resources.  I wasn’t consulting God.  I’d limited my world to my strength, my wisdom, and my power.  No wonder I was in a tailspin!  For such moments God gives this promise:  “We are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ” (Romans 8:17).

The cronies of dismay, gloom and rejection have no answer for the promise of inheritance.  Tell them, the gauge may be bouncing on empty, but I will not run out of fuel.  I’m a child of the living and loving God, and he will help me!”  And because God’s promises are unbreakable our hope is unshakable!

Rank #4: You Have a Spiritual Inheritance

Podcast cover
Read more

Listen to Today's Devotion

Let’s talk about your inheritance!  As a child of God, you have one, you know.  You aren’t merely a slave, servant, or saint of God. No, you have legal right to the family business and fortune of heaven.  The will has been executed.  The courts have been satisfied.  Your spiritual account has been funded.  He “has blessed you with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 1:3).

Need more patience?  It’s yours.  Need more joy?  Request it.  Running low on wisdom?  God has plenty.  You will never exhaust his resources.  At no time does he wave away your prayer with I’m tired, or weary, or depleted.  God is wealthy in love and hope, overflowing in wisdom.

“No one has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him!”  (1 Corinthians 2:9).  Because God’s promises are unbreakable our hope is unshakable!

Rank #5: Our Conflict is With Satan

Podcast cover
Read more

Listen to Today's Devotion

Make no mistake… the devil is a real devil!  Every conflict is a contest with Satan and his forces.  For that reason, the Bible says, “though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.  For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds” (2 Corinthians 10:3-4).

What are these weapons?  Prayer, worship, and Scripture.  When we pray, we engage the power of God against the devil.  When we worship, we do what Satan did not do.  We place God on the throne.  When we pick up the sword of Scripture, we do what Jesus did in the wilderness.  He responded to Satan by proclaiming truth.  And since Satan has a severe allergy to truth, he left Jesus alone.  Satan will not linger long where God is praised and prayers are offered.  And because God’s promises are unbreakable our hope is unshakable!
