If You Don’t Like the View, Change Your Seat
“Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are—northward, southward, eastward, and westward; for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever.” Genesis 13:14-15
There is something to be said about my Jewish friends and co-workers. They have learned to balance their religious commitments with their personal and business life.
I’ve never heard known one of them to feel guilty about prospering or criticizing those that do.
There are whole doctrines and preachers who condemn wealth and the pursuit of it.
I don’t want to analyze the whys to these observations. I would simply like for you to take a seat as you read some anecdotes [historical accounts] that should stimulate you to operate within your spiritual inheritance on a whole other level.
God’s blessings is not something we simply seek, but are a direct response to our relationship with Him. He blesses us as a father gives gifts to his children. And, the children of the father transfer their “blessing” [inheritance] to the next generation. Meaning, the inheritance is bestowed upon bloodline.
“A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children.” Proverbs 13:22
Adam and Eve didn’t receive an assignment; they received an inheritance.
Inheritance: property passing at the owner’s death to the heir or those entitled to succeed; legacy.
The Earth being God’s property was transferred to Adam and Eve for control and soveriegn authority.
As it was in the beginning; so it must also be today.
In the natural you can know your heritage through your bloodline. But there is another bloodline; Christ Jesus who has transplanted us into Abraham’s lineage. Not just in spirit but also in “title deed”.
And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them became a partaker of the root and fatness of the olive tree. Romans 11:17
To the degree that you demand from your title deed, so also you shall receive.
If the fullness of the Earth is the Lord; then so it is also yours. See, this is why I started with my Jewish brethern; some who are messianic Jews and others that are not.
From Heavenly places, the Angels of the Lord see Paris, see Egypt and see Japan.
There is nothing that hides from them. In like manner nothing hides from you.
Having said all of that: Can you see the length, depth and width of your inheritance? I didn’t say want, wish or dream.
- You have a huge harvest. You won’t harvest it until you plant it.
- Bountifulness is all around you. It won’t come until you call it.
- Abundance has your name on it. You won’t have it until you take it.
Today, commit to never settle for crumbs. Pull up your seat to your Father’s table and dine.
