Legend or Legacy – Part 2
By Margaret D. Mitchell
Jesus is our hope of glory. Our source for glorious living.
He made a way for our true heritage, which means our freedom and citizenship of His covenant promise (Ep 2:12).
Colossians 1:27 TPT assures us that "Living within you is the Christ who floods you with the expectation of glory! This mystery of Christ, embedded within us, becomes a heavenly treasure chest of hope filled with the riches of glory for his people, and God wants everyone to know it!"
Recently, during quiet time with The Lord, I believe He revealed to me that, in addition to bringing prodigals home, He is also bringing His people closer to Him through high levels of global influence. He is also miraculously restoring businesses and land ownership (De 28:11).
Beyond the Covid-19 situation.
With past, present and future at heart, I believe God is making a way for His beloved followers to receive far-reaching generational blessings, particularly in the area of family, property and business.
Blessings that have been locked up and have even skipped a generation or more. Legacy blessings of recompense linked with family members who had to sell their homes against their heart’s desire.
Divine blessings of business ownership through wells that have been re-dug. Some involving renewed partnerships that will bring new levels of financial restoration to their family bloodline.
Kinsman-redeemer assignments for those who can be trusted with God’s wealth to build His Kingdom.
I believe The Lord has revealed to me that these life-changing restorations will come into manifestation as He lifts our limitations, with some major shifts coming full circle in the Jubilee Year of 2025 (Ez 46:16-18).
Habakkuk 2:3 MSG says, "...This vision-message is a witness pointing to what’s coming. It aches for the coming—it can hardly wait! And it doesn’t lie. If it seems slow in coming, wait. It’s on its way. It will come right on time."
Friends, it’s time to allow God to define our path and guide us into all truth (Jn 16:13).
It’s time to take the limits off, and let God re-set our boundaries to carefully and strategically position us to receive more of our legacy.
Romans 12:2 TPT instructs us to "Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes."
So, it's time for false shields and fantasies (false legends) to go.
It's time to overcome old mindsets and negative emotions that have held us back.
2 Corinthians 10:5 TPT tells us that "We can demolish every deceptive fantasy that opposes God and break through every arrogant attitude that is raised up in defiance of the true knowledge of God. We capture, like prisoners of war, every thought and insist that it bow in obedience to the Anointed One."
Many have already been tried in tribulation and are ready to step into the accelerated soaring of God’s blessings.
Doing it God’s way in His time.
Rest assured, where one door closes, another door to new life will open.
God wills to honor His beloved followers, who honor Him, with manifest multiplicity.
In serendipitous ways.
Isaiah 55:9 AMPC reminds us that "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts."
Friends, God has covenant blessings to release.
This is dream-come-true stuff.
Ephesians 3:20 AMPC tells us, "Now to Him Who, by…the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]."
Friends, God wills to fully-resource His Kingdom through those who have a Kingdom mindset: Mature followers who have received their worth as a child of God, and can, therefore, can be trusted with valuables to continue a Godly legacy personally and professionally.
We are to enter into our new divine assignments with humility, as an offering unto The Lord.
Job 22:21 instructs us to "Submit to God and be at peace with Him; in this way prosperity will come to you."
Commitment will be necessary.
The Word will continue to be an energizing force in us who believe (1 Th 2:13).
James 1:25 NKJV tells us, "But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does."
We must choose to trust God, and carry on in righteous living, which is by bold faith and obedience.
Philippians 4:19 AMPC reminds us that "…God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus."
Friends, it’s time to awaken, because it's time to join our Lord at the banquet.
So, pray with me if you will…
You are my inheritance. You, Lord, are my portion. I repent of idolizing any false legend, and I renounce all cultural opinions and traditions that are against Your will and way for my life. Thank You for Your rich mercy. I choose to receive it and honor You over false treasures. Lord, please help me live as Your righteous heir, receiving Your first-rate provision, not second best. I choose to enter into Your callings and assignments as an offering to You. Help me to receive every blessing You have for me and nothing that’s not of You.
Thank You, Lord that "You have heard my sweet resolutions to love and serve You, for I am your beloved. And You have given me an inheritance of rich treasures, which You give to all Your lovers” (Ps 61:5 TPT).
In Jesus’ Mighty Name,
And now, I pray, Lord, that You will send a plentiful rain to restore and confirm Your heritage where it languished and was weary (Ps 68:9).
And I pray that You will unveil within us the unlimited riches of Your glory and favor until supernatural strength floods our innermost being with Your divine might and explosive power (Ep 3:16).
I pray that You will flood our hearts with light, so we can know and understand the hope to which You have called us, and how rich is Your glorious inheritance in us saints, who are Your set-apart ones (Ep 1:18).
In Jesus’ Mighty Name.
