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.
The startling thing about Abraham was that he lived like a New Testament believer, even though he lived right at the start of the Old Testament times.
His life played out before the law of Moses was even given. God took him from an environment of idol worship and taught him to live by faith in Him. It is for that reason that Abraham is called the father of all who believe.
It is amazing to see the scope of what God promised to Abraham, and to us as his descendants: that the whole world is ours!
Have we even begun to get hold of this truth?
How big is your world right now? What are you thinking about accomplishing?
If your sole concern is your rent and your boyfriend then your world is small. If everything for you is wrapped up in you and your children, or the way you look, or how much money you make, you are aiming far short of your inheritance.
You realize how small your world is when you come to understand that there is more to life than you know. If your greatest aspiration is to be married and own your house, it is time to start dreaming about stuff that is so big it will intimidate you. Why? Because the whole world is ours!
God did not go to such great lengths so as to release His blessing into our lives just so that we would have enough to pay our bills, it is about nations and people groups. It is about the Spanish speaking peoples and the oriental peoples. It is about going to the ends of the Earth.
The thing that God has called us to is BIG! That means that whatever you set out to do with your life, it is supposed to be on a big scale. For instance if it is owning your own company that you dream of, then it should be one that dominates the entire planet!
How can your life be anything but significant? Nothing is restrained from you. You are an heir of the world!
Confess it over your life today, “My life is about something BIG; I am an heir of the world!”
