Summary: Ownership & Possession are not the same thing? It is said that possession is 9/10ths of the law. You may have a legal right, but if you don’t possess it you aren’t enjoying it! Do you possess what you have a legal right to in the Word?

Ownership & Possession

Mark 11:24

24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive (to take) them, and ye shall have them. (KJV)

Just because God gives you something is no sign that you will enjoy it!

This morning: Ownership & Possession

How many knows that Ownership & Possession

are not the same thing?

>Possession is 9/10ths of the law

You may have a legal right, but it is going to cost you to get it back.

>You can own something, but if I possess it - guess who is enjoying it?

(Problem with Christianity -

we have legal right w/o possession)

God gave the 1st generation Israelites the land of Canaan, but they never enjoyed it.

They couldn’t sit in their tent and cry until God feels sorry for you!

Women with the issue of didn’t sit in her house and wait for her healing.

She went out and possessed what she needed.

She didn’t ask if Jesus was ministering healing that day.

There wasn’t a healing line that she stood in - she determined that she would go in and possess.

>Jesus had established His purpose of ministry and part of that purpose was healing all those oppressed and she had a right to possess it.


Be real: We know we have legal title, but we have not possessed much of what God has provided.

>There are sick among us

>There are financial pressures among us

>There’s oppression/depression among us

>We are not walking in the fullness of what God has

Until we decide that we won’t stop until we possess

Until we get real with ourselves and see that God has provided things for us

Until we get dissatisfied with where we are

We will live and die in this world with legal title, but never possessing what God has for us!



Ps 1:1-2

1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. (total separation)

2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. (KJV)

(delight) chephets (khay’-fets); “pleasure; hence (abstractly) desire; concretely, a valuable thing;

Ps 37:4

4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. (KJV)

-Delight ourselves in the Lord (expect all our happiness) from the Lord (make ourselves soft and pliable) in the Lord


Why won’t we?

Ps 119:16

16 I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word. (KJV)

Ps 119:35

35 Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight. (KJV)

>Why do we not delight ourselves in the things of God like this scripture says?

We don’t believe He’ll do it! (NO BENEFIT)

>All would believe Phil 4:19 - needs unfulfilled

>All would believe Eph 3:20 - suffer lack

1. Several of you won’t be here tonight because you will delight yourself in something other than the things of God.

2. Even more of you won’t be here on Wednesday because you will delight yourself in rest or comfort or some other reason.
