YOUR HERITAGE IS TO REIGN
“For if by one man’s offense death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ”. Romans 5:17 KJV
Our heritage is to reign in life. We have received the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness to reign in life. It is your covenant heritage as a son to reign over the circumstances of your life. You are born of God. You have overcome them because you are of God and the Greater one lives in you. The Greater one lives in you; therefore, you shall overcome every challenge.
Why are you anxious about what to eat and what to drink? The Lord said that is how Gentiles worry. But you are not a Gentile. You are a son of God! According to the book of Isaiah 54:17: “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.” (KJV)
In Christ, you have been empowered to condemn any tongue that rises in judgment against you. When last did you condemn the thing that rose against you? When last did you condemn what the enemy is throwing at you? Notice that the scripture says this is the heritage of the servants of God, and our righteousness is of Him. This scripture is in the Old Testament. If servants have heritage, can you imagine what heritage sons have? If servants can open their mouths and they say this cannot stand and God says that is it, what about a son?
Take your place as a son and begin to reign. Exercise your authority in Christ. In Christ, you are a son! You must understand your sonship. Don’t operate under the aegis of a servant. There is glory coming out of you. The enemy will not quench your light. Stop thinking low. You are far above. Something unusual and something powerful will break out in your life and I will hear your testimony In Jesus’ name.
