Thankful for Our Rights
November 23, 2021
Hebrews 12:28 The Passion Translation
28 Since we are receiving our rights to an unshakable kingdom we should be extremely thankful and offer God the purest worship that delights his heart as we lay down our lives in absolute surrender, filled with awe.
This process that we’re going through, this sanctification, is all about us receiving our rights to the unshakable Kingdom. We are being made like Jesus so that we can operate like Jesus, and as we graduate from level to level, growing in grace, we receive more rights to the Kingdom. We operate with more Kingdom access. Having things happen for us on earth as it is in Heaven becomes more and more normal. We really believe. The signs really do happen. We speak the Word and the world around us responds. That’s what our rights do. They enable us to expose the Kingdom of God.
How do you give God thanks for something as wonderful as this? You thank Him with your words. You thank Him with your worship, and you thank Him with a life of absolute surrender. Just think about that. The God of the universe is giving you access to live like Him. You can operate like Him. You can think like Him. You can live above the natural order of this world like He does. These are the rights He is offering us if we would simply live a Kingdom life following Kingdom principles. So seek the Kingdom and give thanks!
Thank You Lord for Your plan to give me access to this unshakable Kingdom. Thank You for the power that You have made available to me. Thank You for the troubles You’ve already overcome for me. Thank You for giving me the privilege of exposing Your Kingdom on this earth. Help me to live for You more and more. In Jesus’ Name...
