Beloved, we Christians should know that we are special people. Though we are in the world but we are not of the world.
We are not sinners or backsliders and do not belong to the world, for a Christian is not a sinner neither is a sinner a Chris-tian.
We are the people of God, people of heaven, though we live in the world but our final abode is heaven. If you can be-lieve in Him today, you also shall have the privile-ge of Sonship, for all that receive Christ by faith become automatically the sons of God by adoption. This is a precious and free privilege.
There are so much to gain and a lot to lose if you pay not heed to this counseling. This is becau-se in the Kingdom of God’ are provision for all good things. You cannot pursue and overcome your enemies if you are not under the banner of the Almighty God or be-long to His Kingdom. Matthew 6:33 says: “But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteous-ness and all these things shall be added unto you.”
If you desire every good thing in this world and want to be in heaven at last, you must seek the Kingdom of God first. The Scripture says, you should seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all good things shall be add-ed unto you. If you have all good things fine, but if you don’t have all, then you must go for them now for they belong to you. What-ever the devil has taken away from you must be retrieved so that you have all round blessing.
Abraham was blessed by God in all things and if God had blessed him in all things and he is the Father of faith and we are his children, then we shall be blessed and our blessing shall provoke unbelievers. We are destined to be prosperous for all things are ours and this prosp-erity should provoke un-believers to worship God because when you have all things; unbelievers around you will envy you and even plead you shou-ld take them to your church.
Ho-nestly from now your prosperity will provoke sin-ners to worship God because if they are better than you, they may not listen to you. If you prea-ch to them, they may acc-use you of trying to make them be like you. Imagine a situation after you have preached a wonderful ser-mon, you then solicit for transport fare.
Such situ-ation makes unbelievers mock Christians. And such a thing could cause unbelievers to hide when-ever you visited for they would assume you have come to disturb them. If that is your portion, to-day, your life cannot re-main the same because God who owns heaven and earth will bless you today in Jesus name.
Psalm 24:1 says: “The earth is of the Lord and the fullness thereof.” God owns everything. He has nothing to do with car, building, husband and wi-fe, employment or what-ever. We are the ones that have need of them. But while we are supposed to enjoy them as children of God, sinners are having them much more than us. That is why God asks us to go after what belong to us so that our joy shall be full. We must there-fore, pursue our bless-ings and recover whatever that belongs to us from the hands of the enemies.
