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
When the Apostle Paul said in the scripture above that the Word of God is able “to give you an inheritance,” he wasn’t talking about making an inheritance yours. You already have an inheritance in Christ Jesus: “In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will” (Ephesians 1:11).
Colossians 1:12 also lets us know that the Father has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light. Thus there‘s an inheritance for the saints. What the Word of God does is to deliver that inheritance into your hands. If the inheritance didn’t belong to you in the first place, the Word wouldn’t be able to deliver it into your hands.
Often times, there’re rebel-holders of authority—Satan and his cohorts—who try to stop us from taking possession of that which belongs to us. But by standing your ground on the Word, you take possession. Hallelujah! You refuse to shift grounds and allow anyone talk you out of your inheritance.
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 begin to relate with and enjoy all that God has made available to you in Christ Jesus.
