Blessings-Thursday Thought

“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 NKJV

Do you know just how blessed you are? Most of us do not. We waste time striving for what the world deems as blessings. But if you are a child of God then you have already been blessed with every spiritual blessing in Christ! We get down and discouraged often because our focus is on the wrong things. We focus on temporary stuff and temporary situations. But Christ has blessed us eternally. If more of us realized that our outlook on life would be much different.

The greatest blessings the Lord gives His children trump anything that happens to us in this life. Read Ephesians 1:3-23. Christ has redeemed us from alienation from God through sacrificing His life. God has predestined good works for those who trust Him. Your life is already handled; just follow God’s plan. Christ sent the Holy Spirit to live inside every Christian. The Spirit is the mark and guarantee of your salvation; you can’t lose it. The Spirit also helps you understand the Bible and brings it back to your memory; if you take time to study. Now Jesus is in Heaven at the Father’s right hand. We are Christ’s body and therefore positionally seated in Heaven as well. Wow. God’s grace is so awesome. Do you really understand just how blessed you are?
