When we were born again, everything changed in our lives. We look the same, circumstances may feel the same, but friend... Everything changed! It indeed is a beautiful exchange. However, the finite mind can't understand the totality of the cross, but through the Spirit, the loveliness of the finished work is unveiled. We have an inheritance, beloved. The question is, what will we do now that we possess the Promise?
We are God's offspring with unlimited access to Him, just like Adam and Eve. Yet, our position is one greater than them, for the Spirit of the Lord lives in us. However, the law of God has never changed; that is the law of faith. What I mean is how we access all God has for us.
An important reminder👉🏾 heirs neither strive nor toil; instead, they simply receive what rightfully belongs to them, based on the merit of another; and for us, the one who has given us everything is Christ Jesus our Lord.
In the Garden, God gave Adam and Eve dominion over everything, yet, they allowed the enemy to usurp them - trading their glorious position for a lie. May this never be said of us! The problem wasn't ever about what God said; instead, it was whether they believed what God said and His heart of goodness towards them. Friends, the enemy’s tactics haven't changed😉.
Fast forward ⏩ There was a divine reset at the cross. Jesus canceled everything the enemy did! Now we get to live in light of what happened on the cross. His resurrection power lives in us ✝️. We live in the world but are not of it! This is so important because sometimes the children of God forget, attempting to operate the way they did before often because it is familiar and visible. As God's kids, we walk by faith to walk in the fullness of Christ's actions. In Him, we have access to every spiritual blessing (Ephesians 1v3). Only by continuous communion with Him can we remember to utilize the proper currency exchange~that of faith.

Remember 👉🏾 God's greatest blessing is made effective through faith and our confession. God has generously provided us the means to walk in the finished work of Jesus Christ! Friends, it is by faith and through our confession, that the power of God is released in our lives.
Until next time, Faith It🦋
