We have an Entitlement

The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein. (Psalm 24:1)

It is God who created the earth and everything in it. Those of us who have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and saviour have been adopted into the family of God. And I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty.” (2 Corinthians 6:18)

As dear children of God we ask him for what we need to supply all of our needs according to his riches in glory through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19) God says that he owns everything and when he created us he gave us dominion and authority over everything.

Satan took that authority when he caused Adam and Eve to fall into sin. But then Jesus Christ came to earth, died and rose again and took back from the devil the keys of death and hell. Christ’s death, burial and resurrection signalled our redemption to God. The word redeemed is to gain or regain possession of something in exchange for payment. Through Jesus Christ we regained the authority given to Adam before the fall.

Just before Jesus ascended into heaven he called his disciples and told them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. (Matthew 28:18) Christ then delegated that power and authority to us. That is the story of our redemption to God. And with that redemption comes authority to decree a thing and it shall be established. (Job 22:28)

Do not let the enemy bombard you with fear, guilt and doubt. Change your language and your expectations of what God can do in your life. God will grant you the desires of your heart. Search yourself and ensure that your desires line up with God’s will and purpose. You develop an understanding of his will through the study and understanding of the word. As long as your desire is not birthed through envy and covetousness and it lines up with the word of God then it will be granted unto you.

Ask God for what you want. Stand on his word and on his promises and continue to decree what you want to be established. We are not beggars; it is our entitlement.

A.P.-Y.
