“Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours” (1 Corinthians 3:21).
By boldly declaring, “All things are yours,” the Apostle Paul, by the Spirit of God is letting us know that God has given us the key to the whole world! In other words, we have access to all the vast resources of the earth. In Psalm 24:1, the Bible says, “The earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” If God, who is the Monarch of the universe, is your heavenly Father, it means you’re His heir and all that He owns belongs to you. Thus, there’s no need asking or begging Him for anything since you’re His heir.
So the question is: what are those things you think you’re in need of in your life? Once you identify them, instead of asking, just claim them. Instead of asking God to bless you, understand that God isn’t going to bless you any more than He’s already done. He’s already blessed you with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus (Ephesians1: 3). Thus instead of asking for blessings, you ought to manifest blessings!
You need to live daily with the consciousness that nothing is impossible or too difficult for you to get! David understood this and said “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want....” There’s no lack to the child of God. You’re the possessor of all things, for you’re the seed of Abraham: “And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:29). All things have been made available to you in Christ, reach out by faith today and begin to enjoy your inheritance.
Dear Father, I thank you for opening my eyes to the reality that all things are mine. I refuse to lack any good thing, knowing that the Lord is my shepherd, and I’ve been blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places, in Christ Jesus. Thank you Father for bringing me into a large place of abundance, where I prosper and all my needs are met, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
