Good Morning, Blogger Friends:

This morning I had so much to say that my editors had to redirect me.  Their comment was that it was like reading “War and Peace”.  Well, I got the hint and I am rewriting, but for today I just wanted to check in with you and tell you that God is alive and well and He is still waiting to meet with you as we discussed in one of my first blogs (Isaiah 30:18).

What I was impressed with the most of my time with Him this morning is that we have an inheritance of which many of His people are not even aware.  It’s like inheriting a million dollars from someone and never going to collect it. Have you ever thought about what it means to be “joint heirs” with Jesus? (Romans 8:17)

Some of you may have been fortunate enough to benefit from an inheritance some family member left you in their will.  You actually collected it and so, that makes it easier for you to understand.  It is a gift that is handed down from someone who cared enough about you to want you to have it.

Some of you may have been cheated out of an inheritance in some way.  Perhaps your family member did not make it clear what they wanted you to have and so someone else is enjoying what was rightfully yours.   You, too, may be able to comprehend my topic today.  You are not enjoying your gift!

Let me just say, God has a will and He has made it clear who He wants to inherit what.  Many of us have not been diligent to read the document which would tell us clearly what He wants us to have from Him and that, of course, is His written Word!

Let me challenge you today to look up this scripture in Romans 8 and then read Jeremiah 30, 31 and 32 as well.  We will talk more about this in days to come.  Joint Heirs with Jesus!!!  So, all the Father had for Him is for us too??  Wow! Or, in scriptural terms, Selah, stop and think calmly about that!

Meanwhile, I am praying that the Son is shining into your life wherever you are and you are experiencing the warmth of His love for you today!  Better yet, I hope you are taking advantage of some of what He left for us to enjoy!   Many blessings!
