Luke 15:31 (NIV) ~ “‘My son,’ the father said, ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours.’”

This son was always at his father’s side, doing his will. Yet, the son never asked for anything, even though everything that the father had was his. Or, to put it another way, all that belongs to the father belongs to the son. He is never in need, because everything the father has belongs to him; only a slave is in need, for a slave is not a son.

The son, in our text for today, was never in want, for all that his father had belonged to him, yet he never once asked for anything, and even complained when his brother got something, something that was always there for him, if he had only asked his father for it.

The Bible says in James 4:2 (NIV), “You do not have because you do not ask God. All that your heavenly Father has belongs to you through Christ Jesus, yet you have not because you have not asked your Father for anything.”

Your heavenly Father gives you good gifts from above in abundance, with generous and extravagant blessings, lush with His bounty, overflowing with His provision. When you are a son in His kingdom, then you are a joint heir with Jesus Christ through whom all things belong to you. The Bible says in Romans 8:32 (NIV) He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? As our text for today says in Luke 15:31 (NIV),“‘My son,’ the father said, ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours.’” Healing, provision, peace and power belong to your heavenly Father and all of these things that belong to your heavenly Father belong to you, for you are of Christ and Christ is of God.

My friend, see yourself today as a son in your Father’s house and hear Him speak to you these powerful words, “Everything I have is yours.”

God bless you my friend, Matthew.
