There are two types of inheritances. First is the inheritance you receive at the death of a loved one. If you were listed in their will, you receive according to that will. You may inherit money, furniture, property, etc. These are the benefits of the inheritance. Psalm 103:2-5 describes our benefits.
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;

Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with loving-kindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
(Ps. 103:2-5)
What great benefits! Jesus died and you received His benefits. Then He rose from the dead to see to it that His will is carried out in your life.

There is a second type of inheritance. This is what you receive from your parents when you are born. You may inherit their eyes, ears, hair, nose, etc. The way you think and act is developed through your contact with them. You inherit their background and ancestry.

Now that you have been born into a new family, you have a new background. Your ancestry is no longer just your earthly forefathers. Your ancestry is now God Himself. He is your background. You are born into Him. He is your inheritance. You have His nature.

The more you are in contact with Him, the more your thinking and attitudes are developed to conform to His. You have stepped into a new race of people. You are now a part of a holy nation. A new nation of people born of the blood of Jesus.

The more this becomes a reality to you, the more you live as a true heir of God. Whatever physical problems you may have inherited from your physical family no longer have authority in your body. You now possess the nature of this new family.

Health is passed on from your Father. God's nature of super-abundant supply can overcome any physical deformity or malfunction that may have been passed down through your physical family. God's power is more than enough, and that power is abiding within you.

Take hold of a new concept of your Father. He has made His extravagance and abundance available to you. He is not holding back from you. He is reaching out to you.

"Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom" (Luke 12:32).
