bill of rights

Psalm 103:1-5 NKJV

103 Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!

2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits:

3 Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases,

4 Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,

5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

As a believer, you have rights or as the Word calls them ‘benefits’.


Let us go over all those benefits so you know what your rights 'benefits' are with God.


  • Forgiveness – You have the right to be forgiven.

    • Romans 10:9-10 NKJV

    • 9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.


  • Water Baptism – You have the right to be baptized.

    • John 3:5 NKJV

    • 5 Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.

      • Water baptism takes you into the ministry and changes you as a person forever. Once you call on Jesus to save you and then are baptized, you are a new creature. And that creature has the right to propagate.

    • 2 Corinthians 5:17 NKJV

    • 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

    • Mark 16:15 NKJV

    • 15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.


  • Faith – You have the right to have Faith.

    • Hebrews 11:1 NKJV

    • 11 Now faith is the [a]substance of things hoped for, the [b]evidence of things not seen.

      • Faith is what moves God.


  • Healing – You have the right to be healed.

    • 1 Peter 2:24 NKJV

    • 24 who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose [a]stripes you were healed.

      • God wants to and loves to heal. Healing comes by faith and the above point shows you have the right to have faith. Jesus did all the work and God is just looking for faith the size of a mustard seed.

    • Matthew 17:20 NKJV

    • 20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your [a]unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.


  • Knowing God – You have the right to know God.

    • Isaiah 1:18 NKJV

    • 18 “Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord, “Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool.

      • If you don’t understand something of what’s going on, go and ask God. Write your question in a journal and watch how and when God answers. He does.


  • Protection – You have the right to be protected.

    • Psalm 91:1-2 NKJV

    • 91 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

    • 2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.”


  • Have no Fear: You have the right to have no fear.

    • 1 John 4:18 NKJV

  • 18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.


  • No Death: You have the right to live forever.

    • 1 Corinthians 15:55 NKJV

    • 55 “O[a] Death, where is your sting? Hades, where is your victory?”

    • John 11:40-43 NKJV

    • 40 Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?” 41 Then they took away the stone [a]from the place where the dead man was lying. And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. 42 And I know that You always hear Me, but because of the people who are standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me.” 43 Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!”

    • John 3:16 NKJV

    • 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.


  • Gifts of the Holy Spirit – You have the right to have gifts from the Holy Spirit.

    • 1 Corinthians 12:4-11 NKJV

    • 4 There are [a]diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works [b]all in all. 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: 8 for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by [c]the same Spirit, 10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. 11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.


  • Fruits of the Holy Spirit – You have the right to product fruit within you that is of God.

    • Galatians 5:22-23 NKJV

    • 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 [a]gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.


And I could go on. The benefits from the Lord outweighs everything we face.


Don’t you know that Satan is a puppet of God and must do what God tells him?

Job 1:12 NKJV

12 And the Lord said to Satan, “Behold, all that he has is in your [a]power; only do not lay a hand on his person.” So Satan went out from the presence of the Lord.


That means there is no God vs Satan. It’s just God and He’s in control. The above rights are just the tip of the iceberg – the surface of the much more He has for you. Get to know Him and let Him get to know you. You’ll start to realize the more that He is and the more He has in store for you.
