In this final day of your journey into the Father’s heart, your Very Dear Divine Daddy wants to give you his blessing. A blessing that will stay with you for the rest of your life. A blessing that will carry you into the bliss of Heaven. A blessing that will make a difference today and every time you return to Abba-Father during prayer.
But his bow remained steady, / his strong arms stayed limber, / because of the hand of the Mighty One of Jacob, / because of the Shepherd, the Rock of Israel, / because of your father’s God, who helps you, / because of the Almighty, who blesses you / with blessings of the skies above, / blessings of the deep springs below…. / Your father’s blessings are greater than the blessings of the ancient mountains, / than the bounty of the age-old hills. (Genesis 49:24-26 NIV)
This is his promise. You are a much-loved adopted child of God. With your adoption, you have inherited all that belongs to him. Generously! Abundantly! But what does this mean? In our human experiences, someone has to die before we receive our inheritance. Since Abba-Father is eternal, how does our divine inheritance come to us? Do we have to die? Do we have to wait until we reach Heaven before we can receive it?
Our inheritance looks like this: God has made available to us eternal life and every blessing under the heavens and in Heaven. (See Genesis 49:25, Ephesians 1:3, Malachi 3:10.)
Jesus often said, “The kingdom of God is at hand.” We can correctly interpret that to include: “The full inheritance of God is at hand.” Note that Jesus did not say: “When you die, if you believe in Me you will enter the kingdom of God and then you will receive your inheritance.”
He did say, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live forever” (see John 11:25-26). This is the greatest blessing of all. But we need every blessing under the heavens now. Today. Right? Don’t you wish you could have Heaven on Earth this day and every day? Isn’t that what you’re asking for when you ask for God’s intervention in the problems of this world?
The good news is: Your inheritance is available to you right now. Abba-Father desires to give it to you today and every earthly day—as long as you are following Jesus and trying your best to be the saint he re-created you to be.
