Do you know you’ve received of the Lord? Many people wish to leave their possessions to their loved ones to be heirs after their passing. In the same way, Christ left us an important inheritance that we can enjoy during our time in the earth. This article will provide you with more information about this important inheritance left by Jesus Christ Our inheritance in Christ.
Peace I give to you. My peace I leave with you. Not as the world provides, but as I give you. Do not let your heart become worried, and don’t be afraid. John 14:27 (NKJV)
Don’t be worried about anything however, in everything through prayer and supplication, in gratitude, let your needs be known to God as well as the peace of God that is greater than comprehension, will protect your thoughts and your hearts with Jesus Christ Jesus — Philippians 4:16-7 (NKJV)
Christ when He left, declared His peace to us. This is the peace He experienced while He was asleep in the boat as the an engulfing storm was taking place (Mark 4:36-41) and when He was walking through the water (Matthew 14:25-33) and also when soldiers came to detain Jesus during His arrest at Gethsemane (Matthew 26:47-55). Jesus also exhibited this peace at the burial of Lazarus (John 11:38-44) and in many other scriptures.
The peace of Jesus Christ (His inheritance to us) is all you require to get through the turmoil of life without becoming even a little agitated. He is the God of peace and it is in only Him will you find peace. In this life, you’ll encounter hardship but Christ has promised you peace that He will “be of good cheer” because He has conquered the world. John 16:33.
This is the type of peace that , when other say there’s a casting-down then you’ll be declaring that there is a lifting up. When Jesus was subjected to persecution until his crucifixion, Pharisees were celebrating the fact that His death was near however, Christ enjoyed peace knowing that He was sure that there would win for Him at the final. When senior priests and the elders of the house were accusing Him and Pilate inquired about Him due to them He didn’t say any question. He was so peaceful that the governor was amazed (Matthew 27:12-14).
This is the type of peace Christ gave us to ensure our inheritance so that we could be able to defeat the devils that surround us and reap the benefits of our salvation. From His peace-filled heart has Jesus granted us this peace, since no one can offer what they do not have.
Specifics of this inheritance John 14:27 Philippians 4:7
- It’s distinct from world’s type of peace.
Peace in the world is subject to positive results or situations and therefore susceptible to change. When things are going well peace will prevail, however when things go bad, peace is gone.
But that isn’t the situation when it comes to Christ’s peace. This inheritance ensures that you’ll be able to rest in peace, whether it’s sunny or rainy no matter what the situation is good or not. This will make the Christian person a conqueror, since all things will be for your benefit according to Romans 8:28. You’ll be smiling and carrying your shoulders and head high, even though fire might be burning in the mountains due to God’s peace. God within you.
- It transcends all comprehension
Peace of God transcends human reason and comprehension, it is the work of God. It isn’t explained in any way, no matter what. It’s only the fingers of God and therefore cannot be altered or duplicated. It is only available through grace through Christ and it’s your rightful inheritance as an infant of God.
When Jesus got up from his sleep and ordered that the wind be peaceful yet, the disciples could not comprehend His peace, and the authority He had commanded the wind as well as the sea. They followed Him Mark 4:36-41. You don’t have to be able to comprehend it, just accept it with faith.
- It protects your mind and heart
Proverbs 4 verse 23 tells us that the concerns of life are a matter of the heart, so the heart must be protected with the utmost care. Also, Paul says that in Philippians 4:7 that all we require is the security of God to protect our minds and hearts.
The mind is where you find wisdom and wrong advice, once it is absorbed into your mind, can affect your judgment and eventually your actions. The consequences of committing a wrong act could be expensive. With God’s peace God in your life your heart and mind are shielded from the evil elements and your life as well as your destiny are secured.
Triggers of this inheritance Hebrews 11:6, Philippians 6:6-7
This inheritance is accessed through faith. It was yours since the moment you committed all your heart to Christ You just need to seek it out and accept it through faith, belief to God as well as His son through whom peace is brought to you, and faith in that peace from God.
When you understand the person you are in Christ What do you think God declares about you and what is yours in Christ your faith will grow. Faith in God makes the words of God to be real and tangible in your daily life — Hebrews 11:1
- Prayer and prayer and
The Bible tells us to pray for what we want to receive an inheritance. Matthew 7:7-8. Thus, you should make a request for your inheritance in Christ by prayer and you will get it. In prayer and supplications, you are in harmony with the Prince of Peace and therefore, His peace will rub off onto you.
The Bible says that in 1 Samuel 1:12-18, Hannah went to prayer with a sad heart, however she returned to her prayer with a smile that was not more sorrowful. Eli told her to “go in peace” and the peace of God was granted to Hannah.
A heart of gratitude to God is always peaceful. It states, “God I believe you and your word, and I believe that everything will work out for me, no matter what the situation is saying presently”.
The Thanksgiving holiday recognizes the good work God has accomplished and also anticipates more positive things to come. It brings peace to your heart.
King David was an obedient man and, despite the conflicts that surrounded him and the wars that surrounded him, the tranquility of God in him saved the King from all wars — Psalm 92. Psalm 23:2, 4.
The obstacles to its manifestation Philippians 4:6-7 Philippians 4:6-7
This is a sign that there is lacking confidence in God and when one is not a believer in God, peace won’t be accessible. Anxiety tells God, “I don’t know what you are doing and I don’t trust you to handle this issue well”. Anxiety hinders your access to God’s voice. God and therefore no advice from God to bring you peace can be received.
Christ declared that you must not allow your heart to become worried because He hasn’t given His peace to you. Unresting thoughts keep God’s peace. God from your life. The two cannot coexist within you. So, you must choose peace and get rid of anxiety. Be awestruck by God in all of your being. Don’t depend on your own wisdom. All your choices should be apprehensive of Him for He is the only one who can guide your steps – Proverbs 3:5-6
Another obstacle is fear. it’s the opposite of faith. Faith draws God and all He has to offer, while fear draws Satan and all that it offers. Therefore, fear blocks this inheritance from manifesting into your life.
Jesus told us to not worry about your heart His peace is waiting to you. Fear can cause a lot of suffering (1 John 4:18) and they do not promote peace. Fear can open the way for the enemy to take more from you, however God’s peace God gives you the strength to face any obstacle.
- Incompleteness of the word of God
Faith is based on listening to the words that is spoken by God (Romans 10:17) and if faith brings peace, then a lack or lack of faith and the Word of God can hinder the inheritorship of the Lord. Understanding the things that God spoke about your situation or issue in the Scriptures is sure to bring peace of mind.
If you accept the Scriptures as God’s word for them (1 Thessalonians 2:13), the peace of God will be infused into you. All that were recorded in the Bible were intended to be learned by us by patience and the comfort of the scriptures we could gain faith – Romans 15:4. So the lack of a sufficient information from God in this regard will keep God’s peace God from manifesting in your life.
