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. Ephesians 1:3
This scripture brings such hope to us because of those three little words “has blessed us.” Notice it does not say “will bless us.” We don’t need to plead with God to do something else for us. We don’t need to perform perfectly hoping to bend God’s will to bless us…He already has blessed us! And not with just a few meager blessings, but with every spiritual blessing that can be offered from heaven!
The reason this can infuse you with intense hope is because right now YOU possess every ability you need to be the YOU God has called you to be. You don’t have to wait on God to do anything else…He’s done it! God’s part is finished, and now it’s up to you to learn to receive and to walk in what He’s already done for you.
Here’s an example: If a marriage is rocky, there is nothing from the outside that can be added to make that relationship good. There is no pill, no potion, no external ingredient to save the marriage. When two people make a decision to walk together in love, patience, acceptance, and forgiveness the relationship will change. Nothing needs to be added to the marriage, it is just husband and wife drawing from within the strength that was already there to make the relationship strong and healthy.
And, so it is with YOU. God has already put within you everything you need to live a fulfilled and blessed life. You don’t need anything added to you. You don’t have to wait for God to move. YOU are good to go…TODAY. You simply need to draw near to God, learn to live by His strength, and learn to believe and receive all that He wants to bless you with!
Meditate today on the fact that the life of Jesus, living on the inside of you is filled with all the strength, hope, faith, and spiritual blessing that you will ever need.
Father, I believe You chose me before the creation of the world, and have accepted me just as I am TODAY. I believe that through Jesus and His life that lives in me, You have already blessed me with all You have to offer. Thank You so much!
As His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 2 Peter 1:3-4
He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? Romans 8:32
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. Psalm 23:1
