For the promise that he would be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. (Romans 4:13 NKJV)

God promised Abraham that he would be the heir of the world. This promise was made to you too. The verse says, ” For the promise that he would be the heir of the world was not to Abraham or to HIS SEED through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.” So the promise was not just made to Abraham, but to “His Seed” as well, that is, you and I who belong to Christ.

And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. (Galatians 3:29 NKJV)

The Greek word for “world here is kosmos, which means the universe as well as the whole circle of earthly goods, endowments, advantages and pleasures. All these are yours to inherit through the righteousness of faith in Jesus and His finished work of the cross. This righteousness is given to you as a gift from God, so you don’t have to earn it through works.

Beloved, God wants you to be the heir of the world today. So lay hold of your rich inheritance today. Jesus paid for it with His blood! Don’t push it all to the sweet by and by! Enjoy the finished work of Christ.

This is the secret to David’s blessings. He pursued the ark of the covenant and God called him a man after His own heart. Today, you too can be the man or woman after God’s own heart. You can pursue Jesus and bring Him back into the center of your life. Make Jesus the centerpiece of every aspect of your life. The Bible says that where two or three are gathered in His name, He will be there in the midst of them. (Matthew 18:20).

If your marriage is breaking down, let me tell you this, most likely, you are putting your demands on your husband to supply you what only Jesus can give, or you are looking to your wife to give you what you should get only from Jesus. You end up over pressurizing each other. Every marriage needs a “third party.” His name is Jesus. He must be in the midst of every marriage.

Today, you can be the man or woman after God’s own heart by making Jesus the centerpiece of every aspect of your life.

Make Jesus, His finished work, and His grace the center of everything in your life. Make Him the center of your marriage, family, career, and finances, and allow the fullness of His blessings to flow in your life today!
