Pastor George Pearsons- August 2022
I am overwhelmed at the goodness of God as I write this letter.
He is so good to us: so kind, so loving, so generous, so compassionate, so merciful. The words that describe His goodness are so endless it would take an eternity to describe. Say this out loud: “The LORD is good to me!”
Pastor Terri and I are also overwhelmed by the amount of love you show toward us and the entire family here at EMIC. We are so grateful that you chose to become part of this ministry. We pray for you every day, asking God to shower you with His BLESSINGS. We are believing with you for unusual, extraordinary supernatural provision to be poured out on you.
We stand with you in faith, believing that every need is met, every bill is paid, and every debt is removed! Your faith and finances are helping to fulfill our God-given mandate to “take a group of people and disciple them intensely in the Word of God. Teach them an uncommon faith. Help them stand victoriously in life.”
One of the ways we stand victoriously in life is by receiving our full inheritance in Christ. Let’s take a look at Joshua 18:1-3 (New King James Version). It says, “Now the whole congregation of the children of Israel assembled together at Shiloh, and set up the tabernacle of meeting there. And the land was subdued before them. But there remained among the children of Israel seven tribes which had not yet received their inheritance. Then Joshua said to the children of Israel: ‘How long will you neglect to go and possess the land which The LORD God of your fathers has given you?’”
The Promised Land had already been conquered. All they had to do was march in and take it. Seven tribes neglected to receive their inheritance. The King James Version says, “How long are ye slack to go to possess the land?” The word slack means “lazy.” The Message says, “How long are you going to sit around on your hands, putting off taking possession of the land that God…has given you?”
The Old Testament is a type and shadow of the New Testament. The Land represents our full inheritance—all of our covenant benefits in Christ Jesus.
Like the children of Israel, we need to boldly claim everything that rightfully belongs to us in Christ. We should not leave anything on the table. We are heirs of God and joint heirs with Jesus. Our heavenly Father wants us to take our full inheritance—His marvelous provision that was paid for through the blood of Jesus.
How do we receive our inheritance? By faith! Hebrews 11:33, NKJV says, “Who through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions.” The New Living Translation says, “By faith these people overthrew kingdoms, ruled with justice, and received what God had promised them.”
In light of that scripture, declare this out loud:
“Father, today I receive my FULL inheritance. I receive by faith EVERYTHING that rightfully belongs to me through Jesus’ sacrifice. I receive my FULL inheritance based upon my being an heir of God and a joint heir with Jesus. I claim it ALL.”
Let me ask you a question: How many children do you know who have opened only half their presents on Christmas morning? Just based on the actions of my own grandchildren, I’d have to say the answer is quite obvious. They open ALL their presents on Christmas morning! They even look under the tree for more unopened presents long after the festivities are over. Consider what James 1:17 (Amplified Bible, Classic Edition) tells us: “Every good gift and every perfect (free, large, full) gift is from above; it comes down from the Father of all [that gives] light.” As His children, let’s receive EVERY gift the Father has bequeathed to us in our inheritance.
Here is a very precious inheritance scripture. Psalm 16:5-6 (NLT) says, “LORD, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of BLESSING. You guard all that is mine. The land you have given me is a pleasant land. What a wonderful inheritance!”
“Thank You, Father, for making us Your children. We are heirs of Your kingdom. And we receive You as our wonderful inheritance!”
