You Already Have It!

What?

I already have it!

YES!

Through adoption by God, you already have it.

Power, authority and freedom from fear.

As an adopted child of God we are adopted into the family of God

and become joint heirs with Jesus Christ.

Romans 8:15

For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear,

but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out

“Abba Father”.

As an adopted child of God,

we have been given the same rights as the Son

and have been given a new name, a new identity in Christ.

Most importantly, through adoption, we

have been given power and authority to overcome

“all the power of the enemy,” (Luke 10:19)

Jesus had authority over everything; to cast out demons,

heal the sick and over disease.

Matthew 28:18, Mark 1:27, Luke 7:7

As joint heirs with Christ, we inherit eternal life,

the authority to speak over our lives in His Name

and receive all that Christ possesses.

Every person is from God, but not all have been

adopted as sons of God.

To receive your inheritance you must receive Jesus

as your Lord and Savior.

Then all that He has is yours!

God Loves Me

GOD Loves me.
God LOVES me.
God Loves ME.
ME!
 
Notice the emphasis.
There is nothing more powerful than the love of God for He is love. Through
Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection we are shown the ultimate love God has for us. 
So in those times where we feel unloved say out loud
God loves me!
 
“Saving us is the greatest and most concrete demonstration of God’s love,
the definitive display of His grace throughout time and eternity”.
 
                                                                                                          David Jeremiah        
 
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
That whoever believes in Him should
not perish but have everlasting life.
 
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors 
through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither 
death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, 
nor things present nor things to come, 
nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, 
shall be able to separate us from the love of God
which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love 
with which He loved us, even when we were dead in 
trespasses, made us alive together with Christ.
In this the love of God was manifested toward us,
that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world,
that we might live through Him.  In this
is love, not that we loved God, but that He love us and 
sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

Contentment

In this day and age contentment is hard to find.  We are bombarded daily with advertisers telling us to buy their product.  Products which will make us younger, prettier, wealthier, and healthier.  We as consumers spend millions on products.  We go into debt, work ourselves into sickness, we need bigger houses and storage to contain our “stuff”, yet nothing works.  Contentment is elusive.

Paul writing to the Philippians in 4:10-13 “for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content”.  At one time Paul had it all.  He came from a wealthy family in Tarsus.  He was a Roman citizen and a man of privilege.  But his life changed dramatically upon his encounter with Jesus. 

After, Paul traveled the country preaching the Gospel.  As he traveled, he relied on others for money, he was jailed, beaten, shipwrecked, arrested again, stoned and finally killed.  Yet, Paul remained content in whatever circumstances he found himself.

Paul was content for he knew who he was in Christ.  We also can know the contentment that comes for Jesus no matter what we have or don’t have.

Joseph Prince stated, “Your standing is wrapped up in Jesus”.

1 Timothy 6:6-8 AMP  [It is, indeed, a source of immense profit, for] godliness accompanied with contentment (that contentment which is a sense of inward sufficiency) is great and abundant gain.  For I brought nothing into the world, and obviously I cannot take anything out of the world; but if I have food and clothing, with these I shall be content (satisfied).

Philippians 4:19  God meets all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
