Scripture: Ephesians 1:
3Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
Today’s Reading – Ephesians 1,2,3,4
Observation: From the moment we receive Christ, we are blessed with every spiritual blessing.
Application: When we accept Jesus as savior, we are given every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms. We are joint heirs with Christ and everything that The Father has given to Him, we also have available to us. Now we may not be walking in those blessings, we may not be operating in them, we may not be experiencing the benefits of them, but nevertheless we have them available to us.
Sometimes we don’t benefit from the blessings we have because we are unwilling to use our talents and gifts as we should, sometimes we don’t benefit from our blessings because we haven’t realized that we are highly favored in God’s eyes and we don’t know how much He has blessed us.
If you put money in my bank account but I never check the balance and don’t know that it’s there, even though the money is mine and available for me to use I still won’t benefit from it because I haven’t realized it is mine.
Today I want you to know that you are lacking in nothing when it comes to spiritual blessings. Do you need peace? You have it in Christ. Do you need healing? Jesus took your sickness and pain upon Himself at Calvary and bore the burden for you. Do you need strength, wisdom, guidance, patience, freedom? They all belong to you, if you belong to Him. And now that you know that the resources of Heaven are at your disposal, go forth and use them right now. Don’t let them sit idle in your account anymore. You have every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms available for you right now. Claim them as your own!
Prayer: Father of Heaven,
Thank you for granting us unlimited resources in you through your son Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Help me to realize that there is nothing lacking in my life, nothing that is not available for me to call upon as my own through your power. Help me to walk through my life in victory because you have provided it for me.
