And if we are [His] children, then we are [His] heirs also: heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ [sharing His inheritance with Him]; only we must share His suffering if we are to share His glory.
Did you know once you are born again you are an heir of God and a joint heir with Jesus? What does this mean exactly? Well it means you now have ownership to all that God has ownership of. This is important to understand because far to many believers are still being deceived in taking ownership of something that does not belong to them instead of taking ownership of what does. Let me explain.
Anything that the Bible says we are redeemed and liberated from is no longer something we should take ownership of. Satan is a deceiver, and what he continually tries to do is to get believers to accept ownership of what actually belongs to him and not to us. The things that do not belong to God we need to stop falling for the deception of owning as ours, and the things that do belong to God we need to realize that is what we now have ownership of.
For example when a believer refers to a sickness, or any part of the curse that came as a result man’s sin as theirs, they are allowing those things to manifest in their life. When someone says, “My diabetes, my cancer, I’m broke, I’m afraid, I’m worthless, etc”, they are taking ownership of something that is not God’s and therefore not theirs. Stop taking ownership through your words of that which does not belong to God. Instead, ask yourself, “Does this belong to God?” If it doesn’t, don’t accept it as yours. Instead claim what is yours based on what belongs to God. It will change your life.
