All Things Are Yours

Written by Oma Okwara

"And if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ" Romans 8 :17

"Fear not, little flock, for it is the father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom" Luke 12:32

"He has given unto us all things that pertain to life and to godliness" 2 Peter 1:3

" ..... Everything belongs to you, and you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God." 1 Cor 3: 22-23

Ever imagined a son walk into his mother's kitchen, seeing all the well prepared dishes ready to
be taken by anybody who cares but still goes hungry for not having food to eat? Or a prince, whose father is very wealthy and influential, with many servants at his service all having whatever they want whenever they want and even some extras to give out to some friends, yet this prince cannot in his father's house have his needs met (a prodigal son, you may say). Error! The preacher calls it. Princes on foot and slaves on horses back. Eccl 10:5-7

God has given you everything you need.Scripture says that you are an heir of God and joint-heir with Christ. In other words, you have the same priviledges as Christ, you share equally in his
inheritance. A man may have the key to a house without knowing it and he therefore remains outside. He is bound to remain there for as much as he is ignorant of his access into the house. It is the knowledge of who you are in Christ that breaks every limitation in your environment. Understand your place in Christ, everything you need, no matter what it is, has been made
available to you. Christ was made poor so that you through his poverty will become rich. You are complete in him. God calls forth things that are not as though they they were, and you having his nature can also do likewise for you were created in God's Image (Gen 1: 26 "Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like ourselves...." )

All that's required is that you really believe and don't doubt in your heart. He that did not spare his only son but gave him up for all; how will he not freely give you all things? He has made all things for his pleasure, and also for your own pleasure even as his. Arise therefore and tap into the provisions that are there for you. Begin to reign and live as a king because it's your birthright.
