There is a revelation given in the creation story as written in Genesis. It is about God giving Adam and Eve ownership of the blessing. He blessed them with words that empowered them to succeed. They were not hirelings, nor weed pullers in the garden, they had ownership.
This is where the founding Fathers developed ownership as a Godly characteristic. The fact of possessing anything with legal rights is a Godly characteristic.
That fact gives ownership to the individual. It is the cornerstone of a free society. Remember Israel was given land with inheriting rights through generations. In fact let me give you a definition of faith in God, which agrees with the ownership principle.
Hebrews 11:1 NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]. AMP
Notice, faith gives us title deed or ownership of the promises.
The importance of this revelation is; you have received in Jesus Christ a blessing which gives you ownership and empowerment as a believer. Not only do you have salvation, salvation comes with benefits from the Lord. It started in the Garden of Eden and was reaffirmed to Abraham, and then Paul reveals we have received that same blessing in Jesus. This is God’s word to Abraham.
Genesis 12:3 I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” NKJV
Now, this is God’s Word to the church.
Galatians 3:9 So then those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham.
You may be asking, “How do I have ownership?” In Romans, chapter 8, Paul gives us the key. We are made heirs with Christ when we are born of the Spirit of God. Yes that is right; we have an inheritance because of birth rights in Christ.
Ephesians 1:11 In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will.
When a will is read, the recipients have a legal right to possess whatever was given to them. From God’s perspective, a blessing isn’t just a salutatory greeting; it also contains the favor of God to empower you for life. The blessing, when accepted and believed, will affect your family, your work, your health, and will cause you to prosper. The word prosper means to succeed on your journey, including business or whatever work/effort you are engaged in for your life. There are empowerments in the blessing.
Genesis 1:28-31 And God blessed them and told them, “Multiply and fill the earth and subdue it; you are masters of the fish and birds and all the animals. 29 And look! I have given you the seed-bearing plants throughout the earth and all the fruit trees for your food. 30 And I’ve given all the grass and plants to the animals and birds for their food.” 31 Then God looked over all that he had made, and it was excellent in every way.

Notice God was pleased for His people to experience a fruitful life. He gave them the ownership of His promises to exercise authority for prosperous living. The key is to believe the Word of God that He has given this to you and then start confessing the authority of the blessing over your life. Command your life to start opening up to successful living. Give the Word time to work. All of Abraham’s family started prospering wherever they went and so will you. A free people have the right of ownership. I quote: Whom the Son sets free is free indeed. The foundation of the USA is based on our belief in a Supreme Being.
The Declaration of Independence says:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
You are endowed with ownership by God to activate the blessing for your life and His purposes. Pursue it with passion!
Prayer: Father, thank You for believing in me through Jesus Christ. I accept your promises as real and true. With your help, I will take ownership of my life and give thanks to the Lord Jesus Christ for my inheritance. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
