Topic: Your Heritage Is Blessed [TREM Devotional 15 January 2019]
“Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” (Genesis 1:28 NKJV)
In the book of Genesis, God said: “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion ……” (Genesis 1:26 NKJV) And in verse 28, the scripture declares that” God blessed them”
Child of God, your heritage is blessed! Blessing is your birthright! You don’t struggle for it! The believer doesn’t struggle to be blessed. It is something you have been endowed with. Just like someone can be born into royalty and whether he likes it or not, they will call him a prince or princess because it’s a birthright. I want to tell you if you have Jesus Christ as the Lord of your life, you are blessed.
In Christ, God’s verdict concerning you is that you are blessed. That is your heritage! It is your birthright! You are not cursed! The devil is a liar! Don’t believe his lies. Whoever tells you that you are cursed is lying to you. You are blessed. And because you are blessed some things must happen for you. Lines are fallen unto you in pleasant places because you have a goodly heritage. If you go to the marketplace, you must prosper because you have a blessed heritage. Your heritage is a heritage of success. You can’t fail. Your blessed heritage is something that God has settled before you were born.
You don’t work for it! All you need to do is to find out your heritage. Why was Isaac blessed? The blessing of Abraham! He was blessed because he was the son of Abraham. Why was Jacob blessed? Because he was born into the family of the blessed! Never forget this. In Christ, you have been born into the family of the blessed. It is not about what you have done, but about whose you are.
