God has given us His word that He is able to accomplish everything that He promised. And God’s word is His bond He is incapable of failing. The integrity of God will not allow him to do anything other than what He said He would do. Yet even though we say we believe that God will accomplish all He said and we know that He said “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Mark 9:23. Far too many are like the people at the Pool of Bethesda in John chapter 5 we limit God to the person in line ahead of us. Jesus asked the man at the pool, “Do you want to be made well?” The reply “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me.” I imagine Jesus replied something like this. My word is the power behind the troubling of the water and my word is not limited to “rise, take up your bed and walk.” God is a God of integrity and He will “back up His promise with the performance”. No one else was healed at the pool other than the one who stepped into the pool and the man Jesus healed. Why? Because they limited God’s word to what they had heard and come to believe only one person at a time can be healed. All through the scriptures, you see multiple people being healed by Jesus. They rush to Him, call out to Him tear people's roofs open, and let sick down to Him yet not one person at the pool went to Him or called out after seeing Him heal that one man. Why? Because they believed in a limited God and that His word was only good once a year. “If you don’t know what God has promised you, then you can’t fight for it and you cannot contend for it. You must take up His word and fight the good fight of faith. This is your battle plan for victory. Take up the word and fight”.
For most of my life, I believed that inheritance was something that you received at your parent's or other relative’s death. I also believed that inheritance was material Since my parents or any of my relatives as far as I knew did not have much, I knew that I would not receive an inheritance. I was sure from a young age that the only inheritance could claim was genetic and material. Only after I grew in age and wisdom that I have come to realize that an inheritance may not only be material and physical in nature But psychological and spiritual. We inherit a great deal from our parents, relatives, and others who have had an impact on our lives many that neither they nor we knew were left to us. the inheritance of God is material, physical and spiritual and we know exactly what he is giving us. The gift of life and all that comes with it left to us by our eternal Father, resurrected Brother, and indwelling Holy Spirit.

It is by God’s Son, and God’s word that we have victory over pain, over injury, over disease, over depression, and over death and so much more. But we must claim it! We must take hold of the authority that God has given us and speak it into our lives and the lives of others. Every mountain in our path can be moved if we speak to it believing in the name of Jesus.
