|All Things Are Yours: Pastor Anita Oyakhilome by mabell: 6:00pm On Dec 24, 2010|
Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours; Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours; and ye are Christ’s and Christ is God’s (1 Corinthians 3:21-23).
God didn’t create you to suffer and struggle through life. Some people suffer and settle for the lesser things in life too quickly. Some have thought it wrong to live well and look good. They have the notion that it’s better to live in poverty and go to heaven. Living in poverty, sickness and defeat has nothing to do with going to heaven; in fact, that’s inconsistent with the Gospel. However, living in health, dominion, and in God’s provision is the fulfillment of the Gospel.
God didn’t plan a miserable life for you. His Word, apart from showing you His will for your life, also reveals your inheritance in Christ. 2 Corinthians 8:9 declares, “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.” Jesus became poor, that we might become rich. So all you’ve got to do to enjoy the life of prosperity He’s brought you into is to live in His Word!
In Isaiah 1:19, God said, “if ye be willing and obedient, ye shalt eat of the good of the land:” The Living Bible puts it this way: “if you will only let me help you, if you will only obey, I will make you rich.” Your submission to God’s Word as final authority in your life is the key to living in your inheritance in Christ and enjoying life to the full. That’s what empowers angels to act on your behalf and commit riches to you. God has already bestowed all the treasures of heaven on you. He’s given you all things to enjoy, not in the sweet by-and-by, but TODAY!
