A son, a daughter and an heir of God

And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father.” Therefore, you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. Galatians 4:6-7

Have you ever been questioned about your relationship with God regarding your health? Or even had the questions pop up in your head like, “If you are a Christian, why are you sick? If your heavenly Father is so wonderful, why do you have so many problems? Doesn’t your God help you, His child?”
 
And if you’ve been tempted to ask, “God, I am your child. Why is this happening to me?” Friends, you need to know that Jesus knows exactly how you feel because 2,000 years ago, the devil played the same trick on Him with these words. “If You are the Son of God…” (Matthew 4:3). You see, the devil’s intention was to make Jesus doubt His Sonship, and the devil wants to do the same thing to you today.

The enemy wants to destroy the Spirit of sonship in you and in the body of believers. He knows that once you really believe that you are a son of God, something powerful happens. You begin to live life as “an heir to God through Christ.”
 
As a son or daughter and an heir to God, you inherit all the blessings of God which Jesus died to give you, including salvation, healing, provision, wholeness, favor, intimacy with God and answered prayers. And Jesus rose from the dead to make sure that what He died to give you, you get. He is alive today to enforce this rich, blood bought inheritance in your life.

Friends, you are an heir of God through Christ. This means that you are joint heirs with Jesus (Romans 8:17). So, His inheritance is your inheritance too. What is provision when you are an heir of God? He owns every beast in the forest and the cattle on a thousand hills (Psalms 50:10).
 
 All the diamonds and gold came from Him. What is happening when you are an heir of God? He is your creator and the very breath of your life. Friends, enjoy every bit of your inheritance in Christ, not because you deserve it, but because it was paid for by Jesus’ blood. Praise the Lord. How blessed we are because we are in Christ. Hallelujah.
