Your inheritance in Christ is eternal. Even when your future looks gloomy, you can trust God to show you the way.
“…Giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light” (Colossians 1:12)
Do you have feel like you don’t have much to look forward to? Even when your future looks bleak, I want to encourage you to not be driven by your feelings. Look up to God and begin to give thanks to God who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. When we adopted our two sons from Brazil, they were qualified by the government to inherit our name and the right to be in our family. Although they had never traveled far from their village, they had a home and family waiting for them. One day near the end of our time in Brazil, Dre said “sometimes it is hard to believe that it is all true.” We had shown him the pictures, but he needed to trust us and follow us to a new land and a new home. In a similar way, God has told you about your inheritance in His Word. But you must trust Him to bring about your future. God qualifies you, entitles you, authorizes you and enables you with great potential of obtaining a full inheritance in Him! You must believe Him to receive from Him.
