Max Lucado WeekDay Devotionals for Wednesday 19th, February 2020 – HEIRS OF GOD AND CO-HEIRS WITH CHRIST

HEIRS OF GOD AND CO-HEIRS WITH CHRIST

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!
