The Territory

This morning as I was sitting on the couch visiting with my friend we noticed some wild turkeys running at full speed across the prairie. There's a lot of prairie, a good 20 acres of it, and the turkeys were taking it on as if they owned it all. They didn't ask permission first, they just stepped out and then ran with all their might, and they made it from one end to the other. It was a delightful sight.
I've been led to read Ephesians 1-3 for the past few days, and God has asked me to look for what I have been given. What is my territory? What is already rightfully mine? What have I been given?
He has chosen me
He has made me holy  and blameless
He has given me His love
He has adopted me
He has given me the kind intention of His will
I have Redemption
I have forgiveness
I have the richness of His Grace
I can know the mystery of His will
I have His Inheritance
I am sealed IN Him
I have the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him
My eyes have been enlightened by the hope of His calling
I have the surpassing greatness of His power
I have the strength of His might
I am Alive with Christ, raised with Him
I am seated in Heavenly places, IN Christ Jesus
I am saved by Grace through faith
I have peace
I have access through Him in one Spirit to the Father
I am a fellow citizen with all the Saints in God's household
I am being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit
I have boldness and confidence through faith in Him
I am strengthened with Power through His Spirit in the inner man
I am rooted and grounded in Love
I have the Love of Christ
I have Christ IN me, His power within me, therefore I am fruitful.

This is all my territory, and the Enemy does work very hard to take it all from me. This is war, there is NO neutral ground. Jesus, I claim my territory! I claim YOU. I do confess that life is challenging for me, and everyday I come to your throne and bow at Your feet. I need you to remind me of my territory. This is Who You are, and Who I am IN You!
Say That Again, Jesus, I am chosen forever, Captured In Your Hands. I am YOUR TERRITORY!!
