And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified – Acts 20:32
The Word of God is able to deliver an inheritance to you. This is why study and meditation on the Word is of utmost importance to the believer. Colossians 1:12-13 says, “Giving thanks unto the Father, which HATH MADE us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son.”
God has qualified you to be a partaker of the inheritance of the saints in light, so you see, there’s an inheritance for you in Christ Jesus. You couldn’t qualify for it by yourself, but He qualified you by Christ Jesus, for a glorious heritage. Something else to note is that He delivered you from the power of darkness, and translated you into the Kingdom of His dear Son.
Darkness represents evil powers, demons, devils and their works. But He delivered you from them all; He didn’t say it’ll happen if you prayed hard enough; He’s already done it. All He expects of you is to respond to His Word, and walk in the blessings of all He’s done for you in Christ.
The Bible says through knowledge—revelation knowledge—shall the just be delivered into their inheritance (Proverbs11:9). As you study and meditate on the Word, not only will you discover your inheritance in Christ, you’ll also be able to relate with, and enjoy, all that God has made available to you in Him. Live in your inheritance in Christ.
Celebrate it. Celebrating your inheritance and all that Christ has done for you is one way of silencing the devil. As you give thanks to God for the things He’s done for you in Christ Jesus: your salvation, divine health, prosperity, peace, and His life in you, you’re celebrating your inheritance in Him.

Confession (Faith’s Proclamation)
I’m a child of God, and a joint heir with Christ. The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places, and I have a goodly heritage. I’m conscious of my glorious heritage in Christ, and through meditation on the Word, and fellowship with the Spirit, I get to know more and enjoy my inheritance in Christ. Alleluia!
