Stop Treating God like the Wizard of Oz

Remember the story the Wizard of Oz? In the story, the tinman wanted a heart, the scarecrow wanted a brain, the lion wanted courage, and Dorothy wanted to go home.

In the story, the tinman already had a heart, he just never chose to love. The scarecrow already had a brain, he just never used it. The lion always had courage, but just never did anything courageous, and all Dorothy had to do to go home was click her shoes together. Yet they were on their way to see the Wizard of Oz, to give them (what they already had).

This is how many Christians are living their lives. They are begging God for things that have already been made available through the blood of Jesus.

For example, many Christians today pray the prayer, “Lord, be with me…”. This sounds very spiritual, but didn’t He say He was INSIDE you, and that He would never leave you nor forsake you? So why do we pray that?

God expects you to get into the Word of God and discover what has been made available to you. He has already given you a Comforter. He has already given you HIS name. Now He expects you to use it…

Once you know who you are and what you have, you can begin to walk like Jesus!

“And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ” (Romans 8:17)

Do you know what it means to be a joint heir? For example, if a wealthy businessman owns a $5 billion company and has 5 sons which are his joint heirs, it doesn’t mean that each son splits one billion. It means that each son has an equal share of the $5 billion.

Well we are joint heirs with Christ. Everything that Christ has in heaven and in earth, we have inherited an equal share, when we became Sons of God.

This means that EVERYTHING literally belongs to you. So do not complain about not having enough money for rent or car payment…do you not realize that the riches of heaven are at your disposal? Rent!? The name of Jesus has given you an unlimited debit card with enough purchasing power to buy a planet!!
