Verse Of The Day: I pray that the faith you share with us may deepen your understanding of every blessing that belongs to you in Christ – Philemon 1:6. (NET).
LISTEN: “Knowledge is power, but ignorance is the mother of destruction” they say. Of what use is your sonship if you don’t know your father’s inheritances that rightly belongs to you? Nobody delights to be cheated out of his or her rightful inheritance. Your inheritance is your right: similarly, there are blessings already procured by our LORD Jesus for us. Unfortunately, most Christians don’t know what they own in Christ Jesus.
The words of Apostle Paul in Philemon 1:6, to Philemon a beloved brother in Christ is that the faith Philemon shares with the Apostles and the entire believers may deepen his understanding of every blessing that belongs to him in Christ. In the same way, the faith we have in Christ is designed to deepen our understanding of things that He has purchased for us through his blood. To obtain and enjoy the blessings we have in Christ, we must make our words to line up with the word of God. If God’s word says you are healed, begin to say the same thing, I’m healed (Exodus 15: 26). If God’s word says, you are blessed, begin to confess your blessing ( Ephesians 1 : 3 ). If God’s word says you are redeemed and favoured, begin to confess same from today ( Romans 8:33 ).
Always say, LORD, I believe your word on what you say I am, and what you say I will be.
Father in heaven, from today, help me to line up my words with your word, and to access my already procured inheritances in Christ Jesus, amen.
Reflection : Those who constantly say what God said about them will receive what God promised them.
