(Trigger God’s Blessings In Your Life)
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”
Our opening verse doesn’t say God is going to bless us; it says He’s blessed us! This is an amazing reality, and the most beautiful part is, there’re no conditions attached. You’ve been blessed already. Often times, people say, “I’m waiting on the Lord to do this-and-that for me.” And by this they mean they’re expecting Him to “do” something about their case. If there’s anything you’re waiting for God to do for you, then I’ll like to announce to you: God is waiting for you to do something, and effect the change that you desire!
There’re two things to understand from Ephesians 1:3: the first one is that the spiritual controls the physical; meaning, if He’s blessed you with all spiritual blessings, then you’re blessed with all earthly blessings! The lesser is included in the greater. The second thing is, as far as God is concerned, everything you’ll ever require to have a glorious and exceptional life has been granted you. God isn’t holding anything back from you; He’s already done everything. What you’re supposed to do is act on His Word, and make what He’s already done real in your life.
2 Kings 7:1 tells us something very instructive. Elisha, alongside the children of Israel and their king, had been waiting on God to do something, and change the economy of Israel. But nothing happened, until Elisha gave the Word: “…Listen to what the LORD says! By this time tomorrow you will be able to buy in Samaria ten pounds of the best wheat or twenty pounds of barley for one piece of silver” (GNB). When he made this declaration, the economy of the nation changed within twenty-four hours, just as he had said! Take charge of your life, with the Word of God in your heart and in your mouth!
I’m the seed of Abraham, born to reign and rule the world! I’m walking in abundance, because all things are mine! My life is the testimony of God’s grace, glory, and greatness. Not only am I blessed, I’m the dispenser of God’s blessings and goodness.
