COMPLETELY BLESSED! - Saturday, September 9th
(Experience The Fullness Of God’s Blessings)
TO THE BIBLE: Ephesians 1:3
“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”
Samantha, a new Christian, was a bit puzzled about what she had heard her Pastor say during service and went to him afterwards for some answers.
“Good afternoon Pastor Amy. Are you sure that every Christian is blessed, because I don’t feel that I’m blessed….”
“It’s got nothing to do with how you feel, Sam,” she interjected, “I only shared with you what God already said in His Word. Check out Ephesians 1:3 when you get home and say what God said about you there.”
“Okay Pastor, I will.”
To her surprise, she found out that God wasn’t going to bless her any more than He already did. It’s the same thing with everyone in Christ. The question then is, are you in Christ? For that’s where the blessings are—in Christ. In Christ, you don’t need to look for any blessing anywhere else, or pray to God to bless you. The Lord has already blessed every man and woman, boy and girl in Christ Jesus with ALL spiritual blessings in heavenly places, not some. The fullness of all God’s blessings belong to you now!
The Bible says you were called to inherit a blessing (1 Peter 3:9); you were born into the blessing because you’re the seed of Abraham. The Lord told Abraham, “I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing” (Genesis 12:2). This promise was to Abraham and his seed (Galatians 3:16), which means not only are you blessed, you’re also a blessing. Make up your mind to live up to your calling. You’re full of God’s blessings.
“There’s no blessing in this world or in heaven that you should be asking God for, because all things are yours (1 Corinthians 3:21).
Deuteronomy 28:2-6; Galatians 3:8-9
Dear Father, I rejoice at the knowledge that I can experience your bountiful blessings in my life in overflowing measure! Thank you for blessing me and making me a blessing. My life is filled with the good things of life in an overflowing measure, and those I come in contact with are partaking of the goodness of God in my life.
