Therefore, let no man glory in men. For all things are yours (1 Corinthians 3:21).
Being born again, there’s a high calling upon your life. Therefore, refuse to allow your virtual circumstances make you think differently. Jesus said you’re not of this world (John 15:19). He chose you out of the masses; out of the world; you’re of a different breed. You’re an heir of God, and a joint heir with Christ, which simply means, you own the world.
The Bible says, “The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein” (Psalm 24:1). However, God willed the whole world to Abraham through the covenant He made with him and his seed. Galatians 3:16 says, “…to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.”
Therefore, God was looking beyond Abraham’s physical descendant; He was looking at Christ. Galatians 3:29 says, “…if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” We’re the seed of Abraham and, by extension, the possessors of all things. All the promises God made to Abraham, by which he became the possessor of all things are fulfilled in us! As a result, the Bible says, “Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours; Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world…all are yours” (1 Corinthians 3:21-22).
Some people may be fighting over lands and estates; but we own the world and we have proof. If there’s anyone to tell who truly owns this world it ought to be God, for He made the world, and appointed Jesus to be the heir of all things (Hebrews 1:2). And He has said we’re joint-heirs with Him. Hallelujah!
Thus, as a child of God, it’s not a mere boast but absolute reality when you say, “The whole world is mine!” And this world that belongs to you, according to the Bible, is full of the goodness of the Lord for you to enjoy (Psalm 33:5).
Keep Saying It
My life is an absolute manifestation of the glory of God! I live from the inside out; the glory of the Lord in my spirit shines through and is expressed in my body. Yes! I glorify God in my body with excellent and perfect health. It is well with my spirit, it is well with my soul, and it is well with my body. I prosper in all things; my health is flourishing. I am made strong, strengthened with the strength of the Lord. There is no weakness of any kind in my body, in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
