Therefore take no thought, saying, what shall we eat? Or, what shall we drink? Or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things – Matthew 6:31-32
How comforting, and what a blessing to know that the Almighty God is truly your heavenly Father. This should give you extraordinary confidence and boldness to win every day in life. Think about it: you’re the child of the Monarch of the universe! Now that you’re born again, you’ve been baptized into Christ, and awakened to the fatherhood of God.
In John 15:15 the Lord Jesus, prior to His crucifixion, said to His disciples, “Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.” This signified the kind of relationship He had with them at the time; it was one of friendship.
However, after He was raised from the dead, He said to Mary, “….but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God” (John 20:17). He called them brethren; meaning they have become His brothers, having the same Father. A new relationship had been born by virtue of His death and resurrection; you now belong in God’s family! You’re now a joint-heir with Christ. Hallelujah.
Observe again the inspiring teaching of the Lord Jesus in our opening scripture. He’s saying, “Relax, be at peace, and be full of joy! Refuse to fret over what you’ll eat or drink, what to wear, or where to stay! I know everything you need, and I’ve already made provision for you.”
2 Peter 1:3 lets us know that our heavenly Father has already given us everything we need for life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that has called us to glory and virtue. Refuse to accept poverty, sickness or anything negative in your life. Nothing is too good for you; you’re blessed beyond measure. Be bold to lay hold of your prosperity, health, success, and victory, for they are legitimately yours in Christ.
Constantly meditate on the Word, and it’ll produce in you the right mindset, to function as the true royalty that you are.

Dear Father, I thank you for giving me such an extraordinary life of victory, success, and excellence. I’m prospering and living in the manifestation of your infinite blessings because I’m the King’s kid. I’m a joint-heir with Christ, therefore I walk in the dominion and liberty of the Spirit, enjoying the blessedness of my heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
