“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago” (Ephesians 2:10 NLT).
As a believer of Jesus Christ and a child of God, you are unquestionably the masterpiece of God. You are created by God for the best things in life, life on earth and life eternal. Let this be in your mind and in your heart that long before God created all things, God has already set up a wonderful and awesome plan for your life. Nothing but the goodness of God was laid in your path to enjoy and to exercise and to dominate the world. You are in the mind of God even before He created all things. You are destined to be a masterpiece of the Creator of all things. You are made for the best.
It is a mistake to think or even to consider that you have no destiny for the good things in life. It is a grave error even on believing in “luck” or hoping to hit the jackpot in life and be lucky for the good things. You must realize that the words ”luck” and “lucky” are not in the vocabulary of our God, who created us to be the masterpiece of all of His creations. Your future in living in the abundance of God’s grace, mercy, and provisions are NOT dependent on luck. If you are a child of the God of all creations, the King of kings and the Lord of lords, then being lucky is not a right word, because you are destined to be a masterpiece of God. You are God’s finished product, a product that is perfect, beautiful, awesome, majestic, amazing and wonderful. You are God’s masterpiece, nothing lacking, nothing broken, nothing misplaced, but everything is made perfectly for His glory.
“… those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ” (Romans 5:17).
Yes my friend, we will reign in life through Jesus. It was not God’s intent to see you being whacked by the devil through sin, sickness, poverty and lack. If that is the case, then the blood of Jesus is weaker than the works of the enemy. No my friend, the blood of Jesus is the very blood of God. The blood of Jesus has redeemed you from all works of the enemy. In the mind of God, there is no such weakling and gets bullied or pushed around by the enemy. No one shall bully and rule over you, because you are destined to reign in life, you must wake up to the reality that you have the anointing, the Christ in you, and you rule over all the works of darkness.
The devil has no power and dominion over your blessings. The blood of Jesus which is the very life of God has paid for all your needs: your salvation (spirit, soul and body). You are blessed with all things in life here on earth. You are blessed even in financial prosperity. You are blessed for healings and blessed living in health and blessed destined to live long life to the fullest. There is no limit in the blood of Jesus.
You can only be pushed around by the devil if you allow him to do so. You can crawl on your belly and live like a worm if you allow the devil to mercilessly beat the living day light out of you. The devil is full of hate and jealousy; his fury against you is boiling to the nth degree. Therefore, if you give him a chance, even allow him a little bit of you, he will whack you to the nth degree. But thanked God, He always lead us to triumph in Christ Jesus.
In Christ Jesus, you have received the life of God and you have become a partaker of God’s Divine nature. The Father God, His Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit dwell in you. Your inner man, the spirit man, is united with the Spirit of Christ. Not only that, you also have the mind of Christ. Can you imagine the great awesome power of God is dwelling in you? This truth is not understood by mere mind or man’s five senses. It can only understood by faith through the inner man, your spirit.
“For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God” (1 John 5:4-5 NLT).
John declares that every child of God defeats the evil world through our faith. The apostle John, who had seen, heard, touched, smelled, and fellowshiped with Jesus was declaring that our faith is the key to victory over the world. This was the apostle of Jesus declaring the truth – our victory over the works of the enemy. Faith is the key. However, with the overwhelming doubts and fears of many, they back away from the faith. They rationalized faith instead. They produced, improvised, invented and continue to lie about the faith just to justify the existence of their sins, sickness, poverty and lack.
There is only one way to please God according to the written of Word of God. Hebrews 11:6 says, “… for without faith it is impossible to please God.” Faith is the only way to please God. The Bible says that the just shall live by faith. It is a dangerous world for those who live not according to faith. For everything that is not of faith is sin. And sin is evil and it is the territory of the enemy, the devil. If you live not in faith, then you are in the territory of the wicked one.
Here is the truth: As a child of God, you are not supposed to ask God for the things that you already have in Christ. In Christ, you are complete in Him. All things that are in Christ belong to you. You are not supposed to dwell on constant fear, on crying, begging, and asking for the things that you already possess. Asking for a thing that you already have in your spirit is not of faith. It is actually the opposite of faith. Faith acts on the things that you already have in your possession.
You don’t have to ask for healing of your body over and over. By the stripes of Jesus you were already healed. What you need to do is to acknowledge that you are healed by thanking God. Even in financial situation. You are not supposed to beg, because begging is an insult to God’s abundance blessings. God doesn’t beg. God is the Provider, He is a Rewarder for those who seek Him, He blessed with all spiritual blessings.
I want you to know that God is “The Source” for our financial abundance. Money is not the issue to live a prosperous life. There are millions who have millions of dollars and yet still living in poverty stricken soul. And that is because the Christ, the anointing, is not living in their lives. The scripture declares that our Lord Jesus who is rich became poor so that we may become rich. The context of this verse is about money and giving. As a child of God, you are no longer living in poverty (financially). Jesus has saved you from the curse of poverty. Jesus nailed to the cross all the works of the devil, including the lack of money. You are rich in Christ Jesus.
You are the masterpiece of God. God wants to use a masterpiece tool to build a masterpiece kingdom here on earth. God cannot create a masterpiece creation without using a masterpiece tool, because He is a masterpiece therefore He only produce masterpiece creations. The same is true with seeds. A good seed begets good fruits, and bad seed begets bad fruits. Therefore, God is expecting you to make masterpiece disciples of Jesus over all the nations. God is expecting you to lay your hands on the sick for their recovery and getting them made whole. God is expecting you to rebuke the enemy and charge that enemy to go where he belongs.
You are the masterpiece of God. You are cleansed by the blood of Jesus from sin and all sins. You were healed by the stripes of Jesus. You are financially prosperous because of Jesus. Only you can block the blessings from God to come upon you. If you allow the enemy to whip you over and over again all the days and the rest of your life, then you are not pleasing the Lord. Faith is the key to overcome the evil world, and without faith it is impossible to please God.
