Summary: Change everything you can so that you can follow Him fully and without hindrance and chase after those things which belong to you
This Kingdom is costly
Matthew 13:44 - The kingdom of heaven is like treasure, buried in a field, that a man found and reburied. Then in his joy he goes and sells everything he has and buys that field.
I am surprised to find so many people who are embarrassed to tell others that they are Christians. Your position in Christ is valuable so do not make excuses to others about your faith.
Be proud of who you are because you have found a treasure that others have missed. So many people live their lives running around looking for the secrets to life and fulfillment. This can only be fully found in Jesus.
Change everything you can so that you can follow Him fully and without hindrance and chase after those things which belong to you.
You have a part to play in God’s Kingdom and God wants you to work with Him to advance His plans for the earth in your lifetime.
1. Take control
Genesis 1:26 - “Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.’”
We are at our best when we are in control. The UN Commission for Human Rights says that slavery is the most demeaning thing that can happen to a human being. That is because God did not create us to be enslaved. We were created to rule and to be in control.
We need to take control over our destiny and this means taking control over our homes, our businesses, and our eternal purpose.
People tend to think it is a bad thing when we exert authority. God has given us this authority to take control over the territory that has been given to us. The reason why things become disorganized and messy is because the person who is in charge has lost control. When those who have a Kingdom mindset take control, there will be order and a heaven influence.
2. The mystery of the Kingdom
1 Corinthians - 2:9 But as it is written: "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him."
There is so much which we do not comprehend. We have no idea the vastness of His Kingdom and how much He has for us. As we start applying these principles and promises, we discover there is more and more. When we think we have all He has for us, we discover new treasures. Never limit God.
3. Live in a new neighborhood
Ephesians 2:6 - And raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
If you do not like your life you can change it. If you do not like your spiritual environment, you can change it.
In order to have a true understanding of our authority, we must know that God intervenes in the affairs of this world and He uses His anointed vessels to accomplish His plans.
Today, everything is opposed to God. Sadly, a large section of the church today can be regarded as anti-God because of certain beliefs that have been embraced and taught which go against God’s ways.
