“Blessed is 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
Some folks have the idea that God blesses them when they live right, but withholds His blessings when they’ve done wrong. So all the time they’re looking into their lives to settle any “scores” they think they have with God, so they’ll ‘deserve’ His blessing. That’s wrong. God doesn’t bless you for doing well; neither does He withhold His blessing if you aren’t living right. The reason for this is that when you are born again, you were blessed with all spiritual blessings! You became qualified for God’s best.
God has already blessed you with every blessing that exists in Christ, and He left nothing out. Health, prosperity, victory, success, joy, peace and every blessing you can imagine are already in you. They became your possession the moment you were born again. What you should do now is give thanks unto the Father, who has made us qualified to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light (Colossians 1:12).
So, if for example, you were feeling pain in your body and you’ve prayed expecting healing, but it looks like nothing has changed, don’t say “Oh, maybe it’s because of something I did wrong.” That’s the wrong mindset! Healing is your birthright as a child of God. God has already healed you over two thousand years ago; therefore it’s too late for Him not to! This is the reality of the gospel of Jesus Christ!
You need to meditate consciously on the fact that you’ve been blessed with all spiritual blessings in Christ. Since the lesser is included in the greater, all the physical blessings you require to enjoy life are wrapped up in the spiritual blessings, so you actually have all that you need. This is why the Bible says “…His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” (2Peter 1:3).
There’s absolutely nothing that is lacking in you, but it is only through your knowledge of this truth that you can begin to walk in the light of your God-given inheritance.
Dear Father, I thank you for blessing me with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. I am fully endowed with all that I require to live a healthy, vibrant and prosperous life, and I live at that level every day, in the Name of Jesus, Amen.
