Every Spiritual Blessing

Wednesday, August 12, 2015

All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.—Ephesians 1:3

As a believer, you have everything you need to live the Christian life. It isn’t about whether you feel that way; it’s about the reality of what the Bible says. God has given you what you need.

It’s like going to your bank thinking that you have $5 in your account, only to find out that you have $5 million. Where did it come from? Someone deposited it into your account for you. And that is just what God has done for you in your spiritual life.

Many Christians are living like spiritual paupers, making it from moment to moment. Meanwhile, God has put all that we need into our spiritual bank account. We just need to start utilizing it. As Ephesians 1:3 tells us, “All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.”

The blessings are there. You can live a blessed life—not a carefree life, a problem-free life, or even an easy life. But you can live a blessed life. Blessings don’t mean that everything will go perfectly in our lives. But it’s a matter of knowing that God goes with us through life, no matter what.

In Numbers 6, God commanded the priests to pronounce a blessing on the people: “May the LORD bless you and protect you. May the LORD smile on you and be gracious to you. May the LORD show you his favor and give you his peace” (verses 24–26).

The Lord bless you . . . protect you . . . smile on you and be gracious to you . . . show you His favor and give you His peace. You can have that. The choice is yours.
