Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours; whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours (1 Corinthians 3:21-22).
Everything you need for life and godliness has already been granted you in Christ Jesus. Our heavenly Father, through Christ has given you the best life-a life of victory, success, authority, joy and laughter; a life void of sickness, disease, poverty, defeat and death. Some people believe they have to suffer and settle for lesser things in life. For them, it’s wrong to look good, wear nice things and live in a good home. They’re of the notion that if you live in poverty, you’ll go to heaven; but if you have all the nice things of life, you’ll probably go to hell.
That you have good things and enjoy a prosperous life on earth doesn’t mean you won’t make heaven. Some of the greatest men in heaven as revealed to us in the word were men of means and of great substance while they were on earth. Talk about Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and David; these were no paupers! They enjoyed their lives and subdued the world of their time. Living in poverty, sickness and defeat is not at all the yardstick for those who’ll go to heaven.
Understand the will of God for your life; He made you after His own image and likeness, to life in dominion and exercise divine authority in the earth. The Bible talks about the suffering of Christ and the glory that should follow (1 Peter 1:11)! That means now that you’re born again your life is for glory. There’s absolutely no need to live a defeated or miserable life. The Lord has perfected every thing that concerns you; so go ahead, relish the moment and enjoy your life in Christ.
Dear Father, I thank you for giving me every thing to enjoy, having supplied all my needs according to your riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Thank you for giving me such a glorious life of joy. Peace and laughter! I’m reigning in life by the power of the Holy Spirit, conscious that your Divine power has given me all things that pertain to life and godliness, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
2 Peter 1:3
