Access all the Privileges that God has Given You

Daily Devotional

Isaiah 45:11 Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.

There are certain privileges that we possess when we become a child of God, that give us a distinct advantage to live life victoriously. Some of these privileges include: being heirs of all the promises of God, unlimited access to His presence; and, being able to tap into God’s power. By no means is the list exhaustive; in fact there are two (2) other privileges that were mentioned in Isaiah 45:11 that you should be aware of. One of those privileges is that we ask God about things to come so that we can make better decisions.  To demonstrate that we have this privilege, the scripture says, “ask me of things to come concerning my sons”. The operative word in the verse is “ask”, God will reveal to us things to come but it is our responsibility to “ask”. 

David showed how this privilege can be used in 1 Samuel 23. After he and his 600 men delivered the people of Keilah from the hands of the Philistines, David heard that Saul was making plans to come to Keilah to attack him. He therefore asked God two questions about what is to come: will Saul come down to Kelah? And, will the men of Keilah deliver me up into Saul’s hand? God made him aware of what was to come  by telling him that Saul would come down to attack him and that the men of Keilah would deliver him into Saul’s hand. David used that information to make the decision to depart from that city which was in Judah. God wants us to live victorious lives so He will show us things to come so that we can make wise decisions.

The second privilege that is mentioned in the scripture is that we can command God to act on our behalf; this is evidenced by the phrase in the scripture that says “concerning the work of my hands command ye me.” The work of His hand is what He has promised or purposed concerning our lives. We do not have to beg God to do those things, we can command him to do what He said He would do. In Joshua 10, after God told Joshua that he would deliver his enemies into his hands, he never begged God to make the sun stand still so that he could complete the job; he commanded God to let the sun stand still and God did it. When you are in fellowship with God, you have the privilege of telling God what you want him to do and know that He will do it.   

Life Application: Identify and access all the privileges that you have as a believer including asking God of things to come and commanding Him to act on your behalf.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for the privileges you have given me as a child of God. Thank you for the ability to command a thing and have it happen. I will walk confidently in these privileges you have given me. In Jesus’ name, amen.
