Today’s Inspiration: “In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.” Ephesians 1:11-12 NKJV. Many a times when we pray, we just give our petitions, supplications and cares to the Lord but don’t realise that we need to wait for the Lord to release His word, His blessings and His inheritance unto us. Building our personal prayer altar is to hear what the Lord is speaking through His Holy Spirit, who answers by fire. Hebrews 12:29. Prayer is able to download counsel from the courts of heaven according to God’s will and His Word.
Apostle Paul wrote, “In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.” Ephesians 1:13-14. In all our lives, what God is redeeming is our souls from sin. Sin is the obstruction to God’s divine inheritance. When sin is removed, there is a liberation of our negative behaviours, emotions, thoughts and feelings, breaking all strongholds from the lust of our eyes, lust of our flesh and pride of our life. 1 John 2:16. Prayer is a complete surrender to God’s will which holds His Inheritance. Only a surrendered soul is able to walk in the Spirit, humble, obedient, and teachable. Remember we are God’s special and treasured possession. He is the Potter and we are the Clay.
Prayer: O Lord my God, I surrender my heart and will to you everyday, knowing that I am predestined for your glory according to your will. I believe your have redeemed me from the snare of the fowler and deadly pestilence, to be used as your vessel of honour. Cleanse and sanctify me that I may be your workmanship of love, grace and compassion for many other lost souls out there. With Christ Jesus alone, my breakthrough is on the way and my testimony of Him is opening up new doors in this new season to boast in His Name, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
