WE ARE GOD’S CHILDREN WHO INHERIT ALL HIS PROMISES
“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in His holy people, and His incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength He exerted when He raised Christ from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly realms.” — Ephesians 1:18-20
Three wonderful promises of God given to all believers are found in this passage… His hope, His riches and His power. He has chosen us in His love to be His children, pure and righteous in His sight through His Son Jesus Christ. We are called to be His holy people. What a blessed calling!
God has called us to a hope in Him… in His salvation… and the reward of eternal life with Him. His hope is not like the hope of the world. It is not a hope without basis. Hope in God is confident expectation that He will bring to pass all that He has promised… a hope based on the character of God that is both trustworthy and unchanging.
God promises us His riches… His inheritance. We are heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ. We are rich in all that Christ won for us on the cross… victory over death… forgiveness of sins… holiness in God’s eyes. We inherit all the blessings of God, both now and for eternity. What an awesome privilege!
God gives us His mighty power through the Holy Spirit. We are strong in the Lord. His miraculous power, the power that raised Jesus from the dead, resides in us! God assures us that we can do the impossible through this power of Christ. We have the victory in Him.
Allow these promises of God to fill your heart with the certainty of His deep love for you.
