Three days, three offers – that’s how we sell a house in my simple, yet supernatural life! Listening to the Holy Spirit – that small, still voice in my head that guides me if I’ll listen – makes life easier.
As we were contemplating the best scenario for selling our house, the voice said what price to list. The realtor was reluctant, as the price we instructed her to use was well above the price she suggested based on comparable homes recently sold in the area. But when the Holy Spirit speaks blessings into our life, I listen and declare!
The first offer came only 24-hours after listing – and for full price. I should have been thrilled, but wasn’t moved to act. The Holy Spirit had told me that after we listed the house on Thursday, held the open house on Saturday, we would accept an offer on Sunday. The realtor was confused and even suggested “a bird in the hand” should compel us. But I knew to wait and declared that we would accept an offer on Sunday. The showing requests continued to pile up and we had to be away from the house most of the 2nd and 3rd days on the market.
After all the market attention, the realtor agreed to request that all offers be submitted by midnight on Saturday. I went to bed that night resting in the confidence that my God wants to bless me. Sure enough, the next day three offers were waiting for our deliberation.
I often tell people I consider myself blessed, but more so, I am entitled. I am entitled to the richest blessings that my Heavenly Father has to offer. I’m entitled to everything He has. I am entitled to say everything He has said – especially that I am already blessed with every spiritual blessing from above.
I act as if I were a princess, a daughter of the king. A princess knows she gets to take advantage of the spoils of the kingdom. She assumes that whatever she declares, can be made to come true.
Why do I act this way? The book of Ephesians says that I can! Right there in the first chapter Paul confirms that I am “an adopted son (and daughter) of Jesus Christ”. I am a daughter of the king! The same chapter says I also have an inheritance! What is more princess-like than that?
We each have an abundance of blessings in-store for us if we will only believe we are sons and daughters of the king who wants us to live a blessed life and declare it over our lives. Start declaring your blessings today!
“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs – heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ…” Romans 8:14-17 NKJV
