Today’s devotion says:
We’ve all heard stories about people who receive legacies left by
relatives whom they did not know they had. Maybe you’ve even received such an inheritance yourself. But for most of us, these kinds of stories remain the plot devices of fiction and fantasy. We may have received a legacy, but it came with the steep price of losing a loved one such as a parent, guardian, or partner.
However, the most valuable inheritance we have comes as a free gift. And as the saying goes, salvation is free but it is not cheap. Our inheritance was secured by the ransom paid when Jesus died on the cross for our sins. We had an unfathomable debt we could not pay; God became man to fulfill our payment once and for all.
As a result, we are heirs in an eternal reward. We have a priceless inheritance that comes in the fullness of joy—evidence of our Father’s passionate pursuit and unconditional love for us.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Aaron Tabor, MD, is the CEO and Medical Research Director of Physicians Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a nationally recognized diet and nutrition company. He started the Jesus Daily Facebook page in 2009. A graduate of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Dr. Tabor lives in Kernersville, N.C.
I was asked to feature this book on my blog today, and the subject for today just happened to be “Inheritance”. I recently received Dr. Dobson’s latest book for review, and it was all about “Legacy”.
Once again, God is reminding me to be thinking about the spiritual and natural implications of our inheritance and legacy.
My family received a surprise “inheritance” in October 2008. Our neighbors gave us a going-away present of $20,000 when we left Kansas City. They intended for it to be a downpayment on a house, knowing how badly we wanted a home of our own. Our journey has taken us to 3 different states since then, and we had to use the money for other things, but we know that it came straight from God. There were no strings attached, no questions asked, not even a follow-up to find out what we did with the money.
Fast forward to October 2014. We are very desirous to settle down now, weary of all the moving. The $20,000 may be gone, but my Father is telling me that it was only an earnest of the inheritance that He has for us.
He has a greater inheritance that He will pour out on us, both in the natural and in the spiritual.
He has gone to great lengths to show me how much He loves me and delights in me. He has brought Ephesians 1:17-18 to life for me. I am His beloved daughter. He delights in me. I am His and He is mine.
Dr. Tabor says in today’s devotion:
“As a result, we are heirs in an eternal reward. We have a priceless inheritance that comes in the fullness of joy — evidence of our Father’s passionate pursuit and unconditional love for us.”
I feel like God has chased me down and around and all over the place to catch me and hold me and tell me that He really loves me. The Holy Spirit came into my heart years ago and has been trying to open my eyes ever since to see how much my Father loves me.
He was an earnest to my inheritance. And now I’m walking in more fulness of the manifestation of His love for me. When I worship the Lord, I feel His presence so strongly and experience His passionate love for me in such a way that I just can’t help but cry.
This love I feel is worth it all – all of the pain and loss and confusion.
And I believe that He is speaking to me now that the natural inheritance is about to be poured out on us, too.
He is showing me that the $20,000 He gave us was an earnest (a guarantee or deposit) for the greater inheritance He is getting ready to give us.
Our spiritual legacy flows out of this. We are raising up godly seed who have seen God’s hand of provision move for our family over and over again. Miraculously. Our legacy will be children and grandchildren who know the Lord, love Him, do His will, keep Him on the throne of their lives, and teach their children to do the same.
Ask Him to speak to you about your inheritance. There is no greater inheritance than His love and peace. But He has other things for you, too. Ask Him to reveal more about the treasures He wants to give you as His child.
Fathers love to bless their children. Receive His blessings for you.
And teach your children to do the same.
I hope this meditation has blessed and inspired you like it has me!
