This morning I was awaken with the ding of a text on my phone. As I picked it up and looked at it, I realized it was a scripture from a friend. What my friend didn’t know is that the very thing I had been praying about all week was suddenly answered in her timely text.
After dreaming several times about our inheritance, I have been praying and asking God to show me how to lay hold of that inheritance. I have been saying, “God, if it is here and ready, show me how to possess it.”
You see, throughout the Bible when God told His children something belonged to them, He always showed them how to possess it. He always gave them a plan to follow. I was seeking Him for that plan.
I even prayed that if I couldn’t hear the answer that He would send someone to help me. Praise the Lord, he did!
Her text said, “God gave me this scripture for you…” The scripture is found in Psalms 68:9; You, O God sent a plentiful rain, whereby you confirmed Your inheritance when it was weary. At first, I thought, “What? How can an inheritance be weary?” I realized quickly that I had to do some digging.
Then I looked up the scripture in the Amplified Bible. It says, “You, O God, sent abroad plentiful rain; You confirmed Your inheritance when it was parched and weary.” Now, I was getting somewhere! The inheritance is parched and dry. I began to understand where God was going with this.
There are two ways I know of in the Bible to water something. First, there is a scripture in Ephesians that talks about the washing of the water by the word. Revealing that the Word of God is like water on whatever it is spoken over.
Next, God took me back to a scripture that He revealed to me several years ago about worship and the effect it has on rain.
Zechariah 14:17 says, “And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, on them there will be no rain.” This scripture is simple, worship brings rain. Harvests need rain. We need rain and apparently our inheritance needs rain as well.
Let’s look again at Psalms 68:9, “You, O God sent a plentiful rain, whereby you confirmed Your inheritance when it was weary.”
The word confirmed means He established it, secured it settled it and restored it. When rain comes down on your inheritance from God, it is established, secured, settled, and restored if need be. Isn’t that awesome news!
I don’t know about you, but this excites me. I now know that I need to water the inheritance that God has shown me by speaking and declaring the Word of God over it. AND…I know that as I worship God for my inheritance that He will cause HIS rain to fall upon it, confirming it, establishing it and bringing it forth into my hands.
Our God is faithful, when we seek Him, as I did for answers, He is faithful to provide them. He wants us to walk in the fullness of our inheritance even more than we do. He has laid out the plan, we only need to follow His plan. Today, let us begin to water our inheritance by declaring the Word of God over it and let’s worship Him for it! He is…an awesome God!
Appoint My Days
I am anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, I make my requests known to God. I cast the whole of my cares, all my anxieties, worries, and concerns once and for all] upon the Lord because He cares for me watchfully and aﬀectionately.
