You are His treasured possession. You are an heir of God, you have a kingdom to inherit. Someday, you will rule with Christ.


Read on and discover who God says you are….




Why are we here?

The answer lies in Genesis 1:26-18.

1) God created us because He loves us and loves to have us enjoy all His riches in glory.

God did not make Adam to work as  a “supervisor” in His fields and to deliver a certain results for God. God made Adam to be an heir, to celebrate, and to rule over all of God’s creation. That is the depth of God’s love for mankind.

God’s love for mankind has never changed. He loves you. You are a child of God, made in God’s image (Genesis 1:26-28). You are made to be heirs of God, co-heirs of Christ, (Romans 8:17) to enjoy God’s blessings in every way in your life through His perfect love.

2) God has a calling for your life that will honor you

If you study into the bible, every men who walked with God, though they may make mistakes, they were honored by God.

Moses killed an Egyptian. However, when He trust and obeyed the LORD’s calling for his life, Moses became the most highly honored prophet.

David was known to walk closely with God. We can read from his psalms how intimate a relationship he had with God. God established David as the King of Israel without David having to do anything to remove King Saul. Although David did commit adultery and murder, he repented and continued to walk an intimate relationship with God. God restored and blessed David. When Jesus, our Saviour came, He came to the lineage of David.

There are a lot more — Daniel, Gideon, Apostle Paul, etc.  God’s desire for each of us is to lead a life of honor. Such a life will happen when we walk with Jesus. (John 8:12, Romans 12:2).

In Psalms 91:15, it is written:

When they call on me, I will answer;
    I will be with them in trouble.
    I will rescue and honor them.

Psalms 91:15 (NLT)

Wondering if God really exists?

If you look around you, the stars and planets in the universe, the beautiful sunset and sunrise, the four seasons, the plants absorbing sunlight, water and minerals to make its own food, the oxygen that was given out quietly in that photosynthesis process, you will notice that there is order in this world.

Did you realise that many things are happening without we seeing or hearing anything? We do not know that we are breathing the Oxygen given out by the plants. We do not hear the plants cooking its food.

If you read about the animals and sea creatures, such as the Octopus– how the female Octopus sacrifices for its young, you can tell that the Creator of this universe is full of love– sacrificial love.

We cannot deny that there is a great God who had created all these. Yet this great God is love.

Want to know what God thinks of you?

In Galatians 4:7 ,  it is written:

Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are his child, God has made you his heir.

Galatians 4:7 (NLT)

In Matthew 25:34. this is what Jesus said:

“Then the King will say to the good people on his right, ‘Come. My Father has given you his blessing. Come and receive the kingdom God has prepared for you since the world was made.

Matthew 25:34 (ICB)

That means, in God’s Words, He wrote that you are His children, you are His heir. The Kingdom of God belongs to you.

You are made to be God’s child

God created you to be His child, He loves you, He loves to spend time with you. This is what Jesus said when Mary spent time with Jesus:

There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it,and it will not be taken away from her.”

Luke 10:42 (NLT)

One of our greatest calling is to have a close walk with God. In fact, this is what we need, rather than what we have to do. Everyone has a vacuum in them that only God can fill. When we are in our teens, we thought that when we find the person who loves us and whom we love, we will have happiness forever. It turns out that to sustain a long term relationship takes a lot of effort and sacrifice. A good long term relationship requires sincerity, honesty, forebearance, forgiveness, respect and sacrifice. No one is perfect, so we can only achieve this when the void in us is filled with the love from God, then we can find strength to love our spouse and family. 

Out from our walk with God, the Holy Spirit of God will guide our steps (Psalms 32:8). He will give us pleasure and wisdom to achieve our aspiration. Before we realise it, we find ourselves fulfilling the highest calling God has planned for us.  That mission will be one that will bring us to a place of highest honor that we never dream we are capable of achieving (Ephesians 3:20).

God makes everyone of us unique. Each of us is equipped with specific talents, strengths, weaknesses, interests and  resources. This means that God has a great plan for each of us. With God, there is no scarcity of resources. There is no limitation. His plans for us are always good (Jeremiah 29:11). God’s desire is to see each of us live a life of honor, an abundant life that is satisfying and fulfilled (John 10:10). When we walk closely with God, He will direct our steps to fulfill our high calling, our destiny. Read more about what is God’s plan for you.

You will rule with Christ

The following are scriptures that tell us that someday, we will reign with Christ:

You men have stayed with me through many struggles.  My Father has given me the power to rule. I also give you authority to rule with me. 

Luke 22:28-29 (ICB)


But hold fast what you have till I come. And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations—

Revelation 2:25-26 (NKJV)


His lord said to him, ‘Welldone,good and faithful servant; you werefaithful over a few things,I will make you ruler over many things. Enter intothe joy of your lord.

Matthew 25:21 (NKJV)

And they sang a new song, saying:

“You are worthy to take the scroll,
And to open its seals;
For You were slain,
Andhave redeemed us to Godby Your blood
Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
And have madeuskings andpriests to our God;
Andwe shall reign on the earth.”

Revelation 5:9-10 (NKJV)

As you read these scriptures, I pray that the Holy Spirit gives you understanding and your faith will arise so that you will see the  Kingdom that God has prepared for you to inherit. Someday, you will rule with Christ. You have a special purpose, a mission on Earth as written in 1 Peter 2:9:

….You are royal priests,a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.

1 Peter 2:9 (NLT)

Walk with Jesus and He will direct you onto the best path for your life. 

My child, I believe you do not land on this page by chance. The LORD has a special message for you and this is the message:

“You didn’t choose me, remember; I chose you, and put you in the world to bear fruit, fruit that won’t spoil. As fruit bearers, whatever you ask the Father in relation to me, he gives you.” (John 15: 16, MSG)

Do not let anyone’s words or actions convince you that you are not good enough. Do not seek after their approval. You are made in God’s image. You are His most treasured possession. God has great plans, great rewards for you in this life on Earth and in eternity. Someday, you will rule with Jesus in the Kingdom of God (Rev 2:25-26). God can and will turn all your past hurts, tears, rejections into blessings and joy. God will not withhold any good thing from you when You seek Him and walk with Him. Jesus said He will not reject anyone who comes to Him (John 6:37).

If you are not yet a believer, you can pray this prayer to receive Jesus into your life:

“Dear LORD Jesus,  I believe you are the Son of God and that You love me so much that You chose to die for my sins so that I can be forgiven forever and become a child of God. I believe it is You who have chosen me and grant me this understanding of Your love. I invite You into my life to be my Lord and Saviour. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit so that I can lead a victorious life. Guide me in every step of my life and fill my heart with Your joy so that I can have the strength to go forth and live the successful life that God has planned for me when He first formed me. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”

If you have said the above prayer, you are born again by the Holy Spirit. Write down this date so that you will never forget this new birthday. You are now a child of God, you are a new creation. You have the Kingdom of heaven to inherit. You have a new life, you are called a Christian. Look for a church near you, start reading the bible everyday and walk with Jesus. You can turn to Jesus with all your cares and worries. He is with you always and He will guide you.  You will be amazed as you walk this new journey.
