Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

But I have said to you, “You shall inherit their land, and I will give it to you to possess, a land flowing with milk and honey.” I am the Lord your God, who has separated you from the peoples. – Lev 20:24

The Israelites didn’t need to fight for their inheritance in God; they simply needed to 1) receive and 2) possess it. If that was true under the Old Covenant, how much more true is it under our New Covenant with God through Jesus Christ!

For an outline of your inheritance in God through Jesus Christ, take a look at Deuteronomy 28. All the blessings Moses describes for God’s “obedient” people (v 2) apply to you, because under the New Covenant, obedience is simply defined as giving your life to Christ and living for Him!

God created you to bless you! If you aren’t experiencing His blessings, it doesn’t mean you need to work for them harder, or try to please Him more; you simply need to get better at 1) receiving and 2) possessing. What you confess is what you will possess; so declare God’s promises out loud over your life and receive them by faith!

God wants you blessed, no matter where you live: financially prosperous, relationally gifted, and spiritually mature. You don’t have to fight for any of it, because He gave it all 2,000 years ago on the Cross!

Prayer:

Father, thank You that my inheritance is a gift. Thank You that I don’t have to work for it. I have freely received every good and perfect thing from Heaven; now help me to pour out into others like my life depends on it!
