Immediately after Jesus was born, He and his family were forced to flee to Egypt to
escape the wrath of King Herod. How was their trip financed? Through the gifts that had
been brought by the wise men: The valuable gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Whatever
was needed to fulfill His destiny, Jesus received it. As a joint- heir with Christ, all of
your needs will be provided to enable you to fulfill your divine destiny.
Jesus became the supreme sacrifice through which we are reconciled and restored into
fellowship with the Father. Through His blood, you have entered into a New Covenant by
which you have been made a joint-heir with Jesus:
The Spirit Himself (thus) testifies together with our own spirit, (assuring us) that
we are children of God. And if we are (His) children, then we are (His) heirs also:
heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ-sharing His inheritance with Him ...
(Romans 8:16-17, AMP)
As a joint-heir with Jesus Christ, you are not limited by the resources of this world. You
have direct access to the Father and all that He has belongs to you. You do not need to
rely upon your own limited resources to accomplish your divine mandate to spread the
gospel to the world because you have unlimited access to the resources of heaven.
What is your inheritance in Christ? It is all you need to meet your personal needs and to
do your part in extending God's Kingdom. The Bible declares, "But my God shall supply
all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:19). All
means exactly that: All. Everything you need--not the "name it and claim it" idea of
confessing mansions, expensive cars, and jewels--but your needs. That is your
inheritance through Jesus Christ. Your supernatural resources are not just financial
blessings. All the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are in Christ (Colossians 2:2-3).
You are enriched in Him in all things (1 Corinthians 1:5-6). The Bible declares, "Already
you have all you want! Already you have become rich!" ...(1 Corinthians 4:8, NIV). The
tremendous spiritual power Jesus has given you is something that cannot be purchased
And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles' hands the Holy Ghost
was given, he offered them money, Saying, Give me also this power, that on
whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost. But Peter said unto him,
Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be
purchased with money. Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart
is not right in the sight of God. (Acts 8:18-22)
Through your covenant relationship with God which Christ made possible, there is total
provision for every need in your life--salvation, protection, health, peace, deliverance,
power, security, and finances. In addition, God has given you spiritual gifts, talents, and
abilities to accomplish your divine destiny. Indeed, you are very rich!
