With this renewed understanding, if I asked you the question "what is your heritage, your bloodline?" What would your answer be? Would it be something like "I am from an African, Caucasian or Indian"?
Our response to such questions usually stems from the understanding we have of ourselves, mostly in the natural.
However, God, understand and looks at us differently. Our external appearances are irrelevant to him. It does not matter the colour of our skin, our natural DNA or ethnic background. Why? This is because we possess his DNA; which means we come from a heritage and bloodline that stems from him.
Our spiritual heritage and bloodline is more powerful and important our natural ones. Selah
To belong to a heritage and bloodline that stems from the King of King means that everything we need to do on our part to achieve God's reality is already within us; it is imprinted in our DNA. We have all the raw materials and tools we need to be an overcomer that we already are.
Don't think so? Well, lets take a look at some of the richness of our godly natural ancestors.
Starting with Moses. What do you say about this dude? He was the great man of faith. With faith in God's command and word, he parted the red sea! This means, we have faith in our bloodline. So what mountains do you have to move, what seas do you have to swim through and what dreams do you have to bring to reality? Reach within grab hold of the word of God and with faith speak and work it into manifestation.
Lets move on to the Psalmist David. I love this man. The great man of courage he is! Killing a giant with only a pebble stone! How many of us would have run for cover at the sight of a giant? His actions were that of a courageous man. Courageous in the word of God and in the ability that he can do all things through Christ who strengthens him as described in Philippians 4:13, which reads "For I can do everything through Christ,[a] who gives me strength".
The dictionary defines courage as: the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, danger, pain, etc., without fear; bravery.
So, what is that difficulty in you life that presents itself like a giant? Be bold, strong, and courageous in God's word and the ability he has instilled within you, and fall that giant down.
How about Nehemiah? Now this was the man that rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem, even when everyone and everything was against him. His act shows us that we have persistence within our bloodline.
The dictionary describes persistance as: persistence of vision or the act of persevering. One of the major differences between an achiever and one who is not is persistence and perseverance in that which he believes in.
How many of us in today's society, will stand firm and keep pressing forward in that which we believe in, that which God has placed within our hearts, even though current and wind in life is against us? Selah.
Is that dream you are working on not going the way you want it to go at the moment? Don't give up, don't give in, keep trying. If you fall flat on your face, get up and try again, for the word of God says in Proverbs 24:16, and it reads "For a righteous man falls seven times and rises again, but the wicked are overthrown by calamity"
And who can forget Queen Esther? Her unselfish act of sacrifice for her people, shows us that we have the ability to sacrifice and heroism in our bloodline.
