He’s Brought You Into “A Large Place”

Apr 21, 2017

He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me (Psalm 18:19).

"A large place" means a wealthy place; being born again, you're the seed of Abraham, and a joint heir with Christ. Effectively, this means the whole world belongs to you. It's too late for you to be poor or be counted as the poor. The only way you can be poor is by choice or ignorance, because God has already brought you out of poverty into your wealthy place.

2 Corinthians 8:9 says, "For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich." Notice that it doesn't say, "…so that ye might pray to be rich," no; He's already done it. In Christ Jesus, you've been made rich. The Holy Spirit, writing to the Church through Paul, declared, "…all things are yours" (1 Corinthians 3:21). Refuse to think small or see yourself as small; you own this world.

Another beautiful thing is that everything that belongs to you is perfect; your portion is the good one. The Psalmist said in Psalm 16:6: "The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage." Some Christians don't realize this; so they envy others and covet what belongs to others; there's no need for that. You have "a goodly heritage"; an incorruptible inheritance, with your name on it.

Acknowledge, and affirm this truth about yourself and walk in the light of it. God has given you all things that pertain to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3); they're in your spirit. Therefore, have no sense of lack, disadvantage, or limitation. Whatever you're looking for, be it spiritual or material, pull it out from within, for out of your spirit are the issues of life (Proverbs 4:23).

Prayer

Dear Father, I thank you for blessing me with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places, in Christ Jesus. I acknowledge, and walk in the fullness of your blessings in my life. I'm the seed of Abraham, a joint-heir with Christ; the world belongs to me. I lack nothing, because you've graciously granted me all things that pertain to life and godliness, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
