How Many Blessings Can You Handle?

Posted in A New Way

A New Way, a New Thread. Different from the 4 threads I've previously done (The Inner Room, Gems, Disciple, Reaching Higher). So let's get to it shall we!

Ephesians has long been a book I love to read. It's a short book, largely gentle and with lots of God's promises along with some admonitions and commands. In fact just in Chapter 1, from verses 3 to 14 are so many promises of what we've got (been given) plus who we really are in Him, that you'll likely lose count trying to count them all up!! They're all spiritual promises, of course, not material ones, but wow, how absolutely, astonishingly wonderful!!

v. 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. According to this verse, we're already blessed in Jesus (the Messiah) with... HOW MANY spiritual blessings in the heavenly places? With EVERY blessing!! Not just 10, or 50 or even 100, but EVERY possible spiritual blessing. Did I say "WOW!"

Of course we have to take them up, and ensure they are in our life. God doesn't just dump them all on us while saying, "Hey, there ya go!" No, we muct search them out throughout the New Testament (Covenant) and apply them to our lives.

So go HERE to read v.v. 3 to 14, marvel at what He's given us out of His abounding Love He's given, and at least try and grab a handful and get them into your mind and heart, AND then to your daily walk with Him!!

Be blessed!
