“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 KJVS
God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realm in Christ Jesus! In recent times during the pandemic, the song ‘The Blessing’ was released, sang in so many languages, and it was a great source of strength and encouragement for so many. In our house it has become our declaration after each home fellowship prayerfully reminding us of the blessing of God in our lives. Numbers 6:24-26 says, ‘The LORD bless you, and keep you [protect you, sustain you, and guard you]; The LORD make His face shine upon you [with favor], And be gracious to you [surrounding you with lovingkindness]; The LORD lift up His countenance (face) upon you [with divine approval], And give you peace [a tranquil heart and life].’ Amen.
The Blessing is big in our lives, The Blessings covers everything – healing, salvation, prosperity, peace, joy, righteousness, the abundant life, our redemption and deliverance – all covered in The Blessings. It is for this reason Proverbs 10:22 says, ‘The blessing of the LORD makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it.’ God’s blessing is His favour and protection, His prosperity and praise, and all the gifts of God to us.
In the beatitudes in Matthew 5:3-10, I love the amplified translation of ‘The Blessed’ as it describes the blessed person in the context of who they are and what they do showing the breath of the word ‘Blessing’. It defines those who are ‘The Blessed’ as spiritually prosperous, happy and to be admired; forgiven and refreshed by God’s grace; inwardly peaceful, spiritually secure and worthy of respect; joyful and nourished by God’s goodness; content and sheltered by God’s promises; anticipating God’s presence and spiritually mature; spiritually calm with life-joy in God’s favour and comforted by inner peace and God’s love.
Wow! I hope you are taking them all declaring that you are indeed blessed with every spiritual blessings that exists in the heavenly realm in Christ Jesus. It is Christ in you that makes you humble, gentle, merciful, pure in heart, seeking peace and able to stand no matter what you face. You are blessed, healing is in the blessing for God said, by the stripes of Jesus you are healed. Our response therefore is to praise Him, to bless Him and to thank Him for His blessings in our life. The bible says ‘all who see us and our children will know that we are The Blessed of the Lord.’ Hallelujah!
Prayer: Lord we praise you for your blessings on our lives and our families, thanking you that true enrichment comes to us from your blessing. It is a wonderful privilege to be blessed by you, you are greater and we are blessed by the Greater One. May our lives radiate your blessings and may we bless others around us with the same blessings we have received from you. Our healing is in the blessing, our salvation is in the blessing, our redemption is in the blessing and we claim it today with thanksgiving in Jesus Name.
