Heirs to the Kingdom

on August 21, 2014


The palace was lavishly decorated; it was a sight to behold. The colours and scent of the flowers brought beauty as well as serenity to the kingdom. The birds played with themselves.
The king strolled around his palace as he usually did every day; nothing bored him. He got great joy when seeing his children enjoy what he gave; his riches. The high walls couldn’t block out what was happening outside his kingdom. The people that looked unkempt and despaired.
He shook his head at the sight.
He looked within his walls and saw most of his children who were playing, joyful….enjoying life to the fullest. Albeit one of them looked so sullen and almost resembled that of the outsiders. He immediately sent for her and when she had approached him was permitted to say what troubled her.
“Thank you your Majesty. I know you’re our king and sovereign but I can’t help but wonder why people out there suffer when there is this huge favour that can be obtained which you have made available to us. Why is it that some refuse to enjoy your goodness?” she asked. The king smiled at her. “They are ignorant of the riches they have and choose to suffer.”
“How do you mean your Majesty?” she asked confused.
“There are different ways to this. By choice not everyone won’t claim these promises and desire lowliness in life, some wouldn’t even believe the possibility of it, while some don’t chase the kingdom first. There are so many promises I have made. I am sure of my words…they never fail. If I have said something or made a promise, I will do it. It’s that simple. I know all that I have and all I have is yours. But people miss the little things and have become self dependent or perceive them as farfetched. They do not key into these promises.”
“Hmmm… but for some you appear so far to visit… difficult to see due to your position. I mean who can think of approaching the king for things such as riches? How can they be sure when they ask you about this that we will receive them.”
You ask questions to which I have written laws about, but you do not read to keep and practice….to believe and keep,” She looked perplexed. “I am an ever-present help in times of need. How I do it….is beyond you.”

Are we really living up to God’s expectation for our lives?
Are we truly living as sons and daughters of God and enjoying all the blessings that come from our Father?
Do you know what the bible says about His plans for you and all the many things He has in store for you?
Study the bible and key into those promises of God over your life and Believe it!

An excerpt from “I DECLARE 31 promises to speak over your life by Joel Osteen”
I declare God’s incredible blessings over my life. I will see an explosion of God’s goodness, a sudden widespread increase. I will experience the surpassing greatness of God’s favor. It will elevate me to a level higher than I ever dreamed of. Explosive blessings are coming my way. This is my declaration.
I declare I will experience God’s faithfulness. I will not worry. I will not doubt. I will keep my trust in Him, knowing that He will not fail me. I will give birth to every promise God put in my heart and I will become everything God created me to be. This is my declaration.
