Blessed With Every Spiritual Blessing
VERSE OF THE DAY: ~Ephesians 1:2-6 “Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.”
What has God done for us through Christ? He has blessed us who believe with every spiritual blessing, in the heavenly places! He has chosen us from before the very foundations of the world, a people who would be holy and without blame before God in love. We were predestined to adoption as sons of God through Jesus Christ and God took good pleasure in accepting us because that is His will for everyone. Can we take a moment and let that speak to our hearts? I mean think about it, what ever you have gone through in life other than to live in recognition that you are a son or daughter of the Most High God was never His original will. God is so pleased to have you in His family that Christ came and gave Himself for you to be able to join the beloved family of God. And now by His enabling grace you and I are accepted in the Beloved arms of the creator of the Universe! And God is happy about that.
Here’s the picture I get when I think about this. God has seen and He does care so much that He has ordered every thing to Christ’s disposal in order to get you and I to see and receive. Everything we need has been set in place for us to walk in the authority of His royal family. The only thing missing is the faith on the human end of things to receive and walk in it. It’s like being adopted into the best and greatest family ever and they are waiting to love me, bless me to accept me and stand with me through whatever can come my way and since it seems too good to be true, it could have something to do with why so many never accept it and walk in it. All we have to do is be willing to forsake whatever is unholy and causes the shame and despair of this worlds woes to begin with. He has provided everything we need so we can do that, and blessed us with every thing we will need to walk it out. We just have to mutually love our Father as He loves us.
PRAYER: “Thank You Father for Your promises that we can stand on as truth and as an anchor for our souls. Thank for adopting me into Your great kingdom and family I receive your love and goodness by faith and choose not to believe the lies of physical circumstance over Your word of truth. I invite You Holy Spirit to lead and direct my path into deeper revelation of faith in what it means that You have blessed me with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. I ask You to continue transforming me into the person You created me to be. In Jesus’ name amen!”
VERSE FOR FEARLESS LIVING! ~ Genesis 21:17 “And God heard the voice of the lad. Then the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said to her, “What ails you, Hagar? Fear not, for God has heard the voice of the lad where he is.”
