Devotional for August 1, 2017 – “God’s Inheritance

Earlier this year, I learned that I was named in someone’s will. This gentleman was someone whom I pastored. Because of this connection, he named me in his will. And he desired that some of the money be used to further God’s kingdom. So, once I receive this money in the next couple of months, some of this money will be used to fund Legacy Ministries.

Most, if not all, people are pleased when they are named as one who will receive part of an inheritance.

Much has been said about what we who are believers have and will inherit because of our faith and becoming adopted sons and daughters of God. But have you ever thought that that whole inheritance thing with God is a two-way street?

Paul says in Ephesians 1:18, “…so that you may know…what is the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.”

Remember, inheritances are valuable. Have you ever considered the fact that you are part of God’s inheritance? And that His inheritance is quite valuable to Him, just like any inheritance you receive is valuable to you? What does that say about your intrinsic worth and value? What does that say about how God views and sees you?

It says that you are extremely valuable to Him! And what a position to be in!

So, the next time you don’t feel very valuable to God, the next time Satan or one of his minions try to convince you that you just aren’t valuable, remind yourself, remind that evil spirit that you are extremely valuable to God because you are part of the inheritance that God is receiving. And God has placed an extremely high value on his inheritance.

Bask in that reality.

Relish that position.

Allow it to wash over you, renewing you and energizing your spirit, soul, mind, and body.

You are an inheritance.
