DAY 11 FRIDAY: DECEMBER 2020

TAKE YOUR HERITAGE BY FORCE IN LIFE!

And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force (Matthew 11:12).

Every Christian is a rightful citizen of the kingdom of God in life. As a rightful citizen of God’s kingdom, you are the apparent heir of the kingdom in life. Therefore, you are expected to take your heritage by force in life. In the opening text, the Bible tells us that from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God wants him to take his heritage by force in the Holy Spirit. Do not fold your arms and allow the devil to take what belongs to you in life. Hence, it is absolutely the will of God for a Christian to be fully armed with God’s Word and rightfully take his heritage by force in life forever.

Even though Jesus Christ came to give us victory; we need to fight the good fight of faith in order to obtain the victory in Christ Jesus. That is why Apostle Paul said in 1 Timothy 6:12 thus, “Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.” Therefore, whenever a Christian learns to fight the good fight of faith, directly or indirectly he is taking his heritage by force through Christ Jesus in life. Christian race is a battle of warfare and not fanfare in life; therefore, he is expected to stand his ground in faith and take his heritage by force in Christ Jesus. A life that is devoid of spiritual warfare and battle is absolutely a life that is fully caged without divine manifestation in life forever.

Jesus Christ took away your infirmities (1 Peter 2:24); your poverty (2 Corinthians 8:9) and your death (2 Corinthians 5:15). But you need to rise as a Christian to take your heritage by force in life. God has already done and put in place everything necessary for your freedom and victory in Christ Jesus. Therefore, you should never live a life of defeat and fear. The Bible tells us thus in life, “…for all things are yours.” (1 Corinthians 3:21). In fact, it is only when a Christian fight the good fight of faith and takes his heritage by force that all things will truly be his in life through Christ Jesus. Therefore, a life without spiritual warfare and battle is absolutely a life that is full of deceits and divided attentions in life forever.

Daily Tip: A Christian should not be ignorant of his rights and privileges in Christ. He should therefore rise and take his heritage by force in life forever. Shalom!
