Ephesians 1:18 (KJV) The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints.
Being a billionaire, Prince’s Dad deposited millions of dollars into a special bank account for Prince every year on his birthday. He had done this in order to secure a good life for his only child who will at age eighteen be granted access to this account.
Prince, however, became friends with a group of junkies in high school who introduced him to taking and selling hard drugs. He fell to their influence because of the euphoria of being high on drugs, partying and the company of women– things his Dad never permitted. Wanting to ‘‘belong’’, he eventually left home, moved in with his junky friends and refused all attempts by his Dad to get him back home. Even the knowledge of the bank account in his name could not get him back. His dad, however, did not stop depositing money in this account as he hoped that he will return home someday, but Prince never did. At the age of seventeen, Prince’s picture and hat of his friends made the pages of the national dailies. They had gone out on a failed robbery operation and had secured terrible injuries while trying to escape. Unfortunately for Prince, he died before he could get to the hospital.
What an unfortunate end for Prince! Many however are living like Prince today. They know the love of God and His ability to meet their needs but won’t wait for Him. For them, God is too slow hence, they devise strange methods of getting what they want and thereby abandon God and his plans for them.
If this describes you, know that you are being deceived by Satan, and his aim is to rob you of the glory of the riches of your inheritance in God; he wants you to end like Prince. But if you will pay the price of waiting on God today, he will surely give you your inheritance in due time.
For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly (Psalms 84:11, KJV).
Prayer: Father, I repent from haste and impatience and ask that you forgive me in Jesus’ name. Open my eyes to know the hope of your calling for me and the riches of your glory towards me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
