Demand For What Is Yours.
“And the keeper of the prison told this saying to Paul, The magistrates have sent to let you go: now therefore depart, and go in peace. But Paul said unto them, They have beaten us openly uncondemned, being Romans, and have cast us into prison; and now do they thrust us out privily? nay verily; but let them come themselves and fetch us out.”
Acts 16:36-37 (KJV)
One very common truth I share with believers is that the promise of God will not fall on you like a bag of cherries. What you get, how victorious you live, is a function of the truth you know and the truth you enforce. Look at the scripture above, I am sure many people would have classified Paul as arrogant. The general feeling would have been: “just thank God you have been released, so run for your life” but not Paul. Apostle Paul knew his right as a Roman citizen. He knew the constitution and demanded his right and the moment the prison authorities heard that he was a Roman, fear came upon them and the magistrates came and begged them to leave.
What a lesson to us today? For many of us, the moment the devil harasses you a little, you are shaken all over and I hear funny comments like: “thank God it is only a headache, it could have been migraine”. Hogwash! When God saved you, He saved you totally – spirit, soul and body. When He promised you healing, it was complete healing, so why settle for less. You must be ready to demand your right. However, for you to do this, the first thing is for you to even know what belongs to you.
That brings us back to a very important thing; take out time to study the word. Commit at least one hour a day to God. One hour??? Might be your exclamation, but don’t worry, start with 10 minutes and grow with it gradually. I guarantee you that before the end of the year, if you stay consistent you will be spending one hour of quality Bible Study and prayers, and before you know it you will be spending 2 hours and so on. Don’t procrastinate; start now. Take out time to read the word and go a step further to study it. Reading gives you knowledge of your rights, as you meditate on the word you get to understand your right, and when you act on the word you enforce your right.
