The enemy always tries to make us feel unworthy but he has nothing to do with what I am about to share. Are you ready?
God, YOUR Father through Jesus. Has blessed you.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: (Ephesians 1:3, KJV)
The only way someone can be a blessing TO you, is if they are ALREADY blessed.
The definition of bless means “to confer (bestow) prosperity or happiness upon.”
Ephesians 1:3 begins with saying our Father is blessed: “Blessed be…” What is God blessed with?
- He is blessed with peace
- He is blessed with power
- He is blessed strength
- He is blessed with healing
- He is blessed with grace and mercy
- He is blessed with forgiveness
- He is blessed financially
- He is blessed with stability (He is consistent)
God is saying: “I can bless you because I am blessed. And I gave you access to the blessings through Jesus Christ.”
In fact every good gift comes from God.
“Every good gift, every perfect gift, comes from above. These gifts come down from the Father, the creator of the heavenly lights, in whose character there is no change at all.” James 1:17 CEB
If your image of God is not right, you will exalt your problem. Your problem presents an image of being cursed and becomes so big that it becomes your God. Your problem is not your issue. Your eyes are.
Your problem is a tool to grant you access to your blessing. How? Your problem is designed to make you refocus on the Lord and to remember where you help comes from.
God’s original plan was for His children to experience prosperity, peace, and fulfillment, but that design was interrupted when sin entered the world.
Statements of blessings are a wish for God to restore His favor on you. The ultimate blessing that God has given is new life and forgiveness that comes through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. The material blessings we enjoy from day to day are temporary, but the spiritual blessings are forever.
So go ahead. Be blessed…
because you were pre-selected (chosen) to be so.
