We Have an Inheritance
Learning to deal with a chronic illness includes apprehending we have an inheritance. When faced with a chronic disease we realize our normal has changed. We have the new normal of the daily medicines, therapy, and sometimes chemo. A once envisioned future evaporates. We wonder what the tomorrow holds.
The good news is that as Believers in Christ Jesus, we do have an inheritance. Cancer, heart disease, a stroke, high blood pressure, glaucoma, COPD or any disease/illness cannot take that future bequest away from you.
1 Peter 1:3-4 (KJV), “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,”
What the Verse Means
As Christians, we have an inheritance through Jesus Christ.
Pray Using Scripture
- I bless the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
- I thank our Heavenly Father for His abundant mercies that through the resurrection of Jesus Christ I have a Living Hope, even as I battle a chronic disease.
- I praise you for the inheritance I have in Jesus Christ. The bequest in Jesus Christ is incorruptible, undefiled and does not fade away. It does not disappear when I get a chronic illness.
