Topic: Enjoy Your Inheritance [Joyce Meyer Devotional 13 March 2020]
In Him we also were made [God’s] heritage . . . and we obtained an inheritance . . . so that we who first hoped in Christ [who first put our confidence in Him have been destined and appointed to] live for the praise of His glory! — Ephesians 1:11-12 (AMPC)
As a believer, did you know that you have a spiritual inheritance? Life presents constant challenges, but you can recognize what’s rightfully yours by placing your confidence in Christ. You don’t have to live on an emotional roller coaster, feeling up one day and down the next. Instead, you can live the way Jesus lived, with a sense of peace and security that comes from knowing who you are and Whose you are.
Until you make the decision to claim and live in your God-given inheritance, the enemy will continue to rob you of what Jesus died to provide for you. So calm down, cheer up, and learn to receive what is yours through Christ—His righteousness, peace, and joy that overcome, even in the middle of confusion and discouragement.
Prayer Starter: Father, please teach me how to live in the righteousness, peace and joy that are mine in Christ. Thank You so much for providing them for me, and for the strength I need to begin to live them out. In Jesus’s Name, amen.
